Red Velvet Oreo Truffle Fudge Cake by

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.

Making of Red Velvet Oreo Truffle Fudge CakeAbove 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.

Red Velvet Oreo Truffle Chocolate Cake!


  • 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)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Grease sides and bottom of pans.
  3. Blend together cake mix, oil, water, eggs, sour cream, and pudding mix. Beat at low speed (for 30 seconds).
  4. Bake for 30-35 minutes (or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean). Baking time may vary based on size of pan.
  5. Crush Oreo cookies (best with food processor) and stir in cream cheese until fully blended. This will be a very thick "filling".
  6. 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.
  7. In a saucepan over medium heat, melt together butter, sugar, and evaporated milk.
  8. Bring to a rolling boil for 1 minute and stir in chocolate chips.
  9. Remove from heat and pour over cake (fudge sets up quickly) and garnish with chocolate chips!
  10. Enjoy!

    We don’t have the cake mix specified (in Australia). If I make the red velvet from scratch, do I still need to add the sour cream and jello instant pudding (which we don’t have here either)

    This recipe is odd. The cakes come out dense and flat. I have tried it three times with the same result. Others have had the same problem. This is more like a brownie than a cake. Skip it.

    I tried this recipe over and over but it won’t work. The cake comes out thin and tasteless. Never again

    I’ve made this cake 3 times this week. Everyone at work and home LOVES it. I even went ahead and made mini cakes so everyone had their own. I like that much better. I made my cake a bit thinner than appeared in the picture and it was perfect.

    If I made these into cupcakes, do you think I should 1) place a dollup of the Oreo filling in the middle of the batter before baking, or 2) cut out the middle after baking and place some in the middle, or 3) spread some on top of the baked cupcake?

      All sound like good ideas, I’d go with putting it on top of the baked cupcake and then pouring on the fudge.
