1 cup soy milk (or any non-dairy milk)
1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup cocoa
1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
About 10 Peanut Butter Oreos, chopped

For the frosting:

1/2 cup non-hydrogenated margerine 
1/2 cup non-hydrogenated shortening 
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar 
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
pinch of salt (if the peanut butter is salted, leave this out)
6 Oreos, made into crumbs in the food processor


For the cupcakes:
Preheat the oven to 350. Line a cupcakes tin with 12 paper liners.
In a large bowl, whisk together the soymilk and vinegar. Set it aside for a couple of minutes to curdle.
Add the sugar, oil, and vanilla to the “buttermilk.” Whisk until the mixture is foamy.
In a separate bowl, sift the flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
Add the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and mix until all the ingredients are combined. Stir in the cookie pieces.
Divide the batter equally between the 12 cupcake liners and bake for 18-20 minutes.
Cool completely before frosting.

For the frosting:
Beat the shortening and margerine together on medium speed until fluffy.
Add the peanut butter and beat until combined.
Add the powdered sugar and beat for another 3 minutes. Start your mixer on low until the powdered sugar is just combined, otherwise you’ll be wearing it. Then increase the speed to medium.
Add the vanilla extract and salt, and beat on medium high until combined.
