Audrey: Hi! I am Audrey. Boo: And I am Boo. Audrey: And we are making-- Audrey and Boo: Cookin' it up Cookie Cupcakes! Boo: Try saying that three times fast. Audrey: Alright, so what you are going to need for this, is 30 chocolate sandwich cookies, one plain white cake mix box, a half a cup of sour cream -- I mean one cup of sour cream, sorry. A half a cup of vegetable oil and three large eggs. Boo: Yes. Audrey: Alright, and remember, you can make any of this stuff with low fat to make it healthier. Boo: Yeah. Audrey: Alright, so what we are going to do is, we are going to pre-heat our oven to 350 degrees. Boo: And what we are going to do is, we are going to take these chocolate sandwich cookies and you are going to bake them in half like this and you are going to place it, fast inside up in the liners and then you are going to set the other side aside and don't eat it like Audrey did, because later, we are going to put it in a plastic baggy and then we are going to roll it with a rolling pin and it's going to be the topping for the cupcakes, and it's also going to go in the batter. So, we are going to seal that. Audrey: So let's start. We are going to take our sour cream. Boo: Yes, and we are going to put it in our batter, and then we are going to put our half a cup of oil in here and then we are going to break our three eggs in here. But remember, when using raw eggs, always wash your hands afterwards, because they are raw eggs. Audrey: Helpful tip. Boo: Yes. Audrey: Now, while she is doing this, I am going to tell you the cupcake history. Alright, in the 19th century, they used to do everything by weight, but then they decided, hey, wouldn't it be easier to use cups and since they cooked over it open hot, it was hard to make bake cakes. So they dipped them in little individual cups and that's how the cupcake was made. Alright, she is washing her hands. Boo: Okay, very important. So, now what we are going to do is we are going to blend everything together and then it's going to start to blend together and Audrey is going to start to pour them all, mixed up, put these together and she even pouring it here. And we are going to mix it altogether and remember, if you using a whisk and if you are going in a circular motion and it's not all blending together very well, you can do it in a figure 8 motion and it will actually blend together better and quicker. So, try that if it's not all blending together. So, it's blending right now. Audrey: So, after it's all blended -- is it all blended? Boo: Pretty sure, it is. Audrey: We are going to fill the liners about a third full. Boo: And ice-cream scoopers are good thing to use, because it gets it about the right of mouthful, but you can also use like a spoon too which Audrey needs in order to help her get it out of that. But you can also use a spoon or anything you want to get it in the liners, but you want it to be about a third full. Audrey: So, I am start filling that one. Boo: Okay, and when you are done filling it up, there is one thing you don't want to do. So good but don't do it. So good, but don't do it, because of the raw eggs and everything in that. Audrey: Raw eggs -- Boo: So good though. Audrey: Also, when you are putting -- let me just pull it off. So now, we are going to bake at 350 degrees, for 18-20 minutes and then let it cool for a couple of 15 minutes before we add our Best Buttercream Frosting. Boo: So, we have already prepared some cupcakes. So, we have already prepared some cupcakes, because of the time limit, but what we are going to do is, we are going to show you how to make the icing and we are going to take a stick of butter, at room temperature and remember, you can always substitute our ingredients for low fats making more healthy and then you are going to beat it until it's light and fluffy and then you are going to add three cups of --. Audrey: Three cups of confectionery sugar. Boo: Yes. She has to say that because I can't pronounce that. And then we are going to add three to four tablespoons of milk and then we are going to add one tablespoon of vanilla and we are going to -- once you do that, you are going to beat it until it's light and fluffy and then you going to ice the cupcakes and then once you are done icing, you are going to take it and you are going to take these the rest of the oreos, I mean the chocolate cookies that you -- Audrey: Crunched! Boo: Crunched, yes and then you are going to sprinkle it on top and then once you are done -- Audrey: Alright! Well, so these are --. Audrey and Boo: Cooking' it up Cookie Cupcakes. Audrey: And I am Audrey. Boo: And I am Boo. Audrey and Boo: Bye! Audrey: Oh! They are good.
