Preheat over to 350 and line muffin tins.
In a large bowl mix together cake mix, pudding mix (in powder form), sour cream, oil, vanilla, eggs and water. 
(Do not over mix batter as it will make the batter turn to pudding).

Bake for 20 minutes or till top is springy to touch. Cool completely.

Cookies and Cream Frosting

1 stick   butter (1/2 cup)
8 oz      cream cheese (room temperature)
3 cups   powdered sugar
12         oreos finely chopped
1 tsp     vanilla
pinch     salt

Beat butter and cream cheese until fluffy (2-3 minutes).
Slowly add sugar 1 cup at a time, then add salt and vanilla.
Gently stir in oreos. Do not over stir. 

I recently had these at a Super Bowl party and they were FANTASTIC! I seriously thought they were better than crazy cake cupcakes, just the perfect cream cheese icing, not too cream cheesy but dreamy and delicious and so moist, i was in heaven and ate too many! I haven't made these myself yet, but got the recipe and will be making soon for Nixon's bday party I hope, :)
