Cupcakes Anyone?

When I saw this recipe on Sadie's Kitchen, I knew that I had to try it. Now don't throw any stones at me, but I'm actually NOT a huge fan of chocolate, but for some reason this just struck a chord in me and I knew it would be PERFECT for a little get together I had at my home yesterday. Sadie found this recipe at and featured it on her blog a couple of days ago. I tried it out for myself and it was a huge success. It was VERY easy to put together and VERY yummy. My only change is I couldn't find mini oreos at the store so I used regular ones, and it worked out just fine. Top them off with some cool whip and you're good to go. Now what am I going to do with all the leftovers?

1 pkg. (2-layer size) chocolate cake mix
(for the cake mix you will need vegetable oil and 3 eggs)
1 pkg. (8 oz.) Philadelphia cream cheese, softened (I used Great Value fat free cream cheese)
1 egg
2 Tbsp. sugar
48 Mini Oreo Bite Size Chocolate Sandwich Cookies
1-1/2 cups thawed Cool Whip Whipped Topping

1. Heat oven to 350°F.
2. Prepare cake batter as directed on package; set aside. Mix cream cheese, egg and sugar until blended.
3. Spoon 1/2 of cake batter evenly into 24 paper- or foil-lined muffin cups. Top each with about 1-1/2 tsp. cream cheese mixture and 1 cookie; cover with remaining cake batter.
4. Bake 19 to 22 min. or until toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean. Cool 5 min.; remove from pans to wire racks. Cool completely.
5. Frost with cool whip. Top with remaining cookies.

Makes 24 cupcakes.

Sorry, I've got comment can find proscuitto in the specialty meats section at most nicer grocery stores. You could also find it at any Italian Market if you have one nearby.
