One of my favorite recipes + desserts are my Red Velvet Oreo Truffle Brownie Bars (its a mouthful, literally). My father-in-law’s birthday was this past weekend so I was trying to decide what cake to make. I wanted something a little different so I decided to turn that beloved bar into a cake! It’s totally, fantastically – FABULOUS! It’s great for the “chocoholics” in your life. You could even make mini cupcake versions of it! They’re great for celebrations when you want a decadent treat.
The red velvet part is obviously easy to reproduce – since it’s a cake to begin with. The oreo truffle filling is spread between the cake layers and topped with my favorite chocolate fudge topping.
Above is a little pic step-by-step! It’s pretty self-explanatory but the full recipe is listed below. It’s very similar to my red velvet oreo truffle bars. Once the hot fudge topping is poured on, you garnish with mini chocolate chips. Totally delish. Keep the yoga pants out…
Here is the full recipe. You can save it to Ziplist (which is a great recipe “book” by the way) or Print it too! Of course if you love it, share it on Pinterest, Facebook, etc! Thanks! If you decide to share it on your blog, please link back here for the recipe – thanks! Another note: You can certainly use a homemade red velvet for the cake layer! I just happen to love the Duncan Hines red velvet mix.
- 1 box Duncan Hines Red Velvet Cake Mix
- 1 1/4 cups water
- 1/3 cup oil
- 3 large eggs
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 package Jell-O Instant Pudding (White Chocolate) 3.4 oz
- 1 package Oreo cookies
- 1 8-ounce package cream cheese
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 1/3 cup evaporated milk
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips (extra for garnish)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Grease sides and bottom of pans.
- Blend together cake mix, oil, water, eggs, sour cream, and pudding mix. Beat at low speed (for 30 seconds).
- Bake for 30-35 minutes (or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean). Baking time may vary based on size of pan.
- Crush Oreo cookies (best with food processor) and stir in cream cheese until fully blended. This will be a very thick "filling".
- After cake has cooled, spread Oreo filling between layers as you stack. Again, it's very thick so you might have to use your hands to help spread it onto cake.
- In a saucepan over medium heat, melt together butter, sugar, and evaporated milk.
- Bring to a rolling boil for 1 minute and stir in chocolate chips.
- Remove from heat and pour over cake (fudge sets up quickly) and garnish with chocolate chips!
