Recipe: No Bake Cookies and Cream/OREO Cupcakes

Twist, lick, dunk. Well, that's one way of eating these delicious childhood biscuits, but I definitely prefer them mashed up and mix with good ol cream cheese. The result is nothing less than satisfying. And what's best? You don't even need an oven for this recipe! Okay look, this little delicacies are dangerous, and by that, I meant they are not exactly healthy and you wouldn't have the willpower to stop at one. Hence, when they come in cupcake-form, one wouldn't feel as guilty as eating a whole slice of Oreo cheesecake, eh?

Anyway, these are great for children parties and those who are young-at-heart. I mean, who doesn't love Oreo? (Just remember to check the mirror before grinning to anyone else!)
