The complete list of ingredients can be found in the recipe card below.
How To Make an Oreo Mug Cake?
Crush the Oreo cookies into fine crumbs using a food processor or by placing them in a plastic bag and crushing with a rolling pin.

Chocolate Chips- The best part about this chocolate cake is that you can sprinkle in some chocolate chips. What or dark chocolate? It’s entirely your preference. Don’t add too much. I would say about ¼ cup should do the trick, my friend.
Peanut Butter Oreo Cake- If you love peanut butter, add a layer between the Oreo cake for a delicious peanut butter twist. You will have to make two cakes for this. After chilling, spread a thin layer of peanut butter on top of the ingredient Oreo cake.
Kid-friendly Oreo Cake Balls- Roll the Oreo mixture into small balls and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Freeze the balls for about 30 minutes, then dip them in melted chocolate to create Oreo balls or Oreo cake balls.

Oreo Biscuit- With the cake, you can make them into large cookie pieces or make what I like to call an Oreo biscuit. How? Follow the steps listed above, but instead of placing the mixture.
