Strawberry Crunch Cupcakes

Strawberry Crunch Cupcakes

These Strawberry Crunch Cupcakes remind me of those amazing Strawberry Crunch Cupcakes popsicles that we use to get from the ice cream truck as kids! 

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Additional Time 30 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 10 minutes



  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 1/3 cups water
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 box white cake mix
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sour cream (8oz container)


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 8 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 8 ounces Cream cheese, softened
  • 2-4 tablespoons heavy cream


  • 12 Fresh Strawberries
  • 20 Golden Oreos
  • 3.4 oz box strawberry Jello powder
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted



Pre-heat oven to 325F.

In the bowl of a mixer, mix together the oil, egg whites, water, and vanilla. Mix on low for about 10 seconds.

In a large bowl, mix together cake mix, flour, sugar, and salt.

Slowly add the dry mix a little at a time. Mixing on low until everything is combined.

Add sour cream and mix well.

Mix well.

Line a muffin/cupcake tin with paper liners. Fill each cupcake liner about 3/4 full of batter.

Bake at 325F for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and cool.


Cream butter in the bowl of a mixer.

Add cream cheese and mix well.

Slowly add powdered sugar while mixing. Add vanilla and heavy cream and mix until combined.*


Roughly crush Golden Oreos and pour into a bowl.

Mix in strawberry Jello powder and melted butter.

Stir well.


I like to use a piping bag, fitted with a 2D Drop Flower Decorating Tip and to swirl the frosting onto the cupcakes.

Then sprinkle the strawberry crunch topping onto cupcakes.

Top each cupcake with a sliced strawberry.


*Add 1 tablespoon of heavy cream at a time until desired consisted is reached.
