Ingredients 

Pink Velvet Oreo Surprise Cupcakes
(1 1/4 cups) All purpose flour
(3/4 cup) Sugar
(2 tablespoon) Cocoa powder
(1/2 tsp) Baking soda
(1) Egg
(1 1/4 cup) Oil
(1/2 tsp) Vanilla
(1/2 cup) Buttermilk
(1-2 teaspoons) Pink gel food coloring
(12) Whole Oreos

Cream Cheese Oreo Frosting
(1) 8oz package of cream cheese
(1/2 tsp) Vanilla extract
(2 tbsp) fine Oreo crumbs (no chunks)
(2 cups) powdered sugar
Mini Oreos
Valentine's sprinkles

Instructions

For the cupcakes
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a cupcake pan with paper liners. 
2. Combine dry ingredients: flour, cocoa powder, and baking soda. Carefully whisk them together. 
3. In another bowl, combine sugar and oil and mix until combined.
4. Add one tsp pink food coloring and mix well. 
5. Add the egg and vanilla and mix until combined.
6. Measure out 1/2 cup buttermilk. Add the flour mixture and the buttermilk to the wet ingredients. Mix well and until everything is completely incorporated. 
7. If your batter isn't as pink as you want it at this point, add another teaspoon of food coloring.
8. Spoon cake batter into the bottom of one paper liner just enough to cover the bottom. Place an Oreo on top, and try to get it in the center. Spoon more batter on top of the Oreo, filling the paper liner about 3/4 full. Repeat with the rest of the cupcake pan.
9. Bake cupcakes for 20minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and insert a toothpick diagonally from the edge and into the center of the cake. If it comes out clean, your cupcakes are ready! If not, put the pan back in the oven for a couple of minutes. 
10. Let the cupcakes sit in the pan for a few minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.

For the frosting
11. Mix the cream cheese and vanilla in a large bowl until smooth and creamy.
12. Add Oreo crumbs and the powdered sugar. Mix until completely combined. 
13. Spread icing onto cupcakes.
14. Top with Mini Oreos and sprinkles!
