Marshmallow Oreo Cupcakes

I made these cupcakes this weekend and they were delicious!! You layer the cupcakes with batter, oreos, marshmallow fluff, then more batter. The batter is super moist because it has a box of instant pudding mix in it! 
I think I put a little too much batter on the bottom.. they were overflowing the muffin tins, but still tasted great!
And check out the inside:
My frosting was a little on the thin side, but still delicious! Here is the recipe from Picky Palate:

Fluffer-Oreo Birthday Boy Cupcakes
1 yellow cake mix
1/2 Cup water
1/2 Cup canola or vegetable oil
4 eggs
1 box instant vanilla pudding mix
4 oz softened cream cheese
5 Oreo Cookies, crushed plus 12-24 whole Oreos to layer inside cupcakes
1/2 Cup marshmallow cream plus 1/2 Cup to layer

5 or so Oreos crushed to sprinkle over each frosted Cupcake (or mini Oreos on top)

Cream Cheese Frosting:
8 oz softened cream cheese
1 stick softened butter
3 Cups powdered sugar

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Using your stand mixer, beat the cake mix, water, oil, eggs, pudding mix, cream cheese, 5 crushed oreos and 1/2 Cup Marshmallow cream until well combined, about 1 minute.
2.  Line your muffin tin with paper liners and place 1 Tablespoon of batter into the bottom of each cup.  Layer with an Oreo then a dollop of marshmallow cream. Top with 2 more Tablespoons of cupcake batter, should be about 3/4 full.  Don’t fill more than that or you’ll have a mess in your oven.
3.  Bake for 18-22 minutes, or until just golden brown and cooked through.  Let cool completely. 
4. Place cream cheese and butter into mixer, beat until well combined.  Slowly add in powdered sugar until good frosting consistency then spread with cream cheese frosting. Frost and top with crushed or mini oreos.
