Strawberry Golden Oreo Cupcakes

If I could eat any dessert I wanted and never gain any weight, I would have a Dairy Queen Blizzard every day.  I would.
I love them.
Reese Cup is my favorite, but Strawberry Golden Oreo comes in a close second. 
Ice Cream, Golden Oreos and Strawberries - so yummy. 
So yummy there should be a cupcake version too.

This is what is looks like on the inside. 
See the golden oreo half on the bottom? 

Strawberry Golden Oreo Cupcakes
adapted from BakingJunkie

1 Box strawberry cake mix (I used Duncan Hines Supreme)
1 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup oil
4 eggs
24 Golden Oreos, quartered

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place half of a cookie, cream side up, in the bottom of your cupcake liner. Combine cake mix, buttermilk, oil and eggs. Gently fold in the oreos cookie pieces.
Spoon batter into cupcake liners, filling them about 2/3 full.
Bake approximately 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.  Cool completely and then frost.

I frosted mine with vanilla buttercream, sprinkled them with crushed oreo cookie and a strawberry sliver on top.
