1 package of Chocolate fudge cake mix{mix according to directions on box}
1/2 package of semi sweet chocolate chips
1 tsp of unsweetened cocoa

8 ounces of cream cheese, room temp
1/2 cup of unsalted butter- room temp.. {1 stick}

Fill the cupcake tins. Bake according to box directions.. {smallest amount recommended in my oven}
While cupcakes are baking make frosting.
Cream together butter and cream cheese. Add vanilla and powdered sugar until blended well. Chop 1/2 remaining regular sized Oreo's very fine.  {You can use a food processer if you have one, I don't. I put a few in a heavy duty ziplock and use a rolling pin to crush them.}  fold into frosting.  Add the rest of the chocolate chips to frosting and foldin.  After cupcakes have cooled, frost and decorate with 1/2 of a large Oreo or mini Oreo's. Refrigerate until serving.

Our Missionary Nephew Comes Home Tomorrow!!

We are so excited to greet our nephew Robert who is coming home from the mission Field tomorrow.
He has been serving in Argentina.   I made him a "candy gram" for a homecoming gift.
I put it in a round plastic container, filled it with the candy and taped the candy gram on the outside.  That way I don't have to carry a big poster board to the airport.
 This is the message I came up with using candy bars and some BYU mints.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Look  Ladies, its Elder Robert Murray that Big Hunk that just got home from the mission field.  It might be quite a Shocker but we expect that soon he will hit the dating scene and start hanging out with some Smarties from BYU.    U-no it may make us Snicker if he brings home any Runts or AirheadsJust remember Robert,  you don't need to bring a companion on your dates unless you want to look like the 3 MusketeersBe a Good & Plenty date and take  her to the movies or the Symphony. You can be a Mr Goodbar in your singles ward and on campus as long as you don't act like all the other Hot shots telling Whoppers about their missions. Follow these words of advice and  you can Skor a Marvolous & Magnificent Companion to take to the temple!

 I tied it with a ribbon and Tada!!! Ready for our missionary!!
