Valentine’s Day Red Velvet Oreo Truffle Brownie Bars!

UPDATE: A few commenters were having trouble with the red velvet layer crumbling and not being able to support the heavy chocolate layers so I reworked that layer and the recipe below is updated. 

Alright guys. This recipe will have you in your stretchy leggings in no time flat, but it’s all worth it. They are a layer of red velvet brownies (I could stop here and be satisfied but what’s the fun in that) with an Oreo truffle layer (I know, the inside of Oreo truffles..) topped with chocolate and mini chocolate chips. Yes, Oreo truffle! As in, the filling in addictive Oreo truffles spread out across red velvet brownies. Sinful. Sultry. Perfect.

Ok ok, one more until we get to the recipe and details.

Decadent red velvet oreo truffle brownie bars!

Now, if you’re against cake mixes then substitute this fully homemade version of red velvet brownies from Southern Living. Up to you! Cake mixes make my chaotic life easier so I used them there.

Here are the main items needed for these decadent little bars of heaven…full printable + save-able recipe at the end of the post!

How to make Red Velvet Oreo Truffle Brownie Bars!

Red Velvet Oreo Truffle Brownie Bars


  • 1 Duncan Hines box Red Velvet cake mix
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 package Jell-O insant white chocolate pudding (3.3 ounces)
  • 6 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 package Oreos
  • 8 ounce package cream cheese
  • 1/2 package (1/2lb) chocolate bark (CandiQuick) (or about 1-1/2 cups chocolate chips)
  • mini chocolate chips for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Combine cake mix, melted butter, eggs, pudding mix, vegetable oil and mix well until thoroughly combined (2-3 minutes on medium of electric mixer).
  2. Spray a 9x13 with nonstick cooking spray. I like the baking variety that has flour in it. Then spread the red velvet brownie layer into the pan. It will be VERY thick, use the back of a spoon (or clean hands) to help spread it into all edges of the pan.
  3. Bake for 20-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean (ovens vary so watch closely). Let cool completely before flipping out.
  4. Crush package of Oreos in a food processor (or in a large plastic bag and rolling pin).
  5. Melt cream cheese for 15 seconds in a microwave to soften.
  6. Stir together crushed Oreos and cream cheese until blended smooth.
  7. Carefully spread out Oreo truffle mixture on top of baked red velvet brownies. Use your hands to help press it down instead of spreading to avoid tearing the brownies.
  8. Melt chocolate candy bark (or chocolate chips) and pour over top Oreo truffle layer.
  9. Sprinkle with mini chocolate chips while still warm.
  10. Let cool competely before cutting into squares.

    I made a double batch for Valentine’s Day this year and they were such a hit that I get asked when I’m going to make them again on a weekly basis. I’m not even exaggerating at all. Thank you so much!

    i found the red velvet cake part to be dry. any suggestions to make more moist? someone suggested sr cream??

  5. 173

    These look delicious and I’d really like to make them.
    I really don’t like using cake mixes, so if I was to use the recipe of the red v brownies from the website mentioned above, would I bake the brownie as per the website or according to Courtney’s recipe i.e. mix the cake ingredients with the eggs and butter mention by Courtney.
    I need to eat these NOW, So please reply soon

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. :D

    I am making this right now, but I added pudding to the Duncan Heinz that already has pudding in it. Questioning my decision. The batter seems pretty soft now that it is out of the oven.

      I made them last night and no matter how long I cooked the cake part, the batter was VERY soft. I followed the instructions to the T.

I’m a tad disappointed because they seemed so promising on this post. Also the Oreo Truffle layer seemed to make the cake layer cave in on it’self. Now I have an over sweet, very heavy gooey mess. :( because they seemed so promising on this post. Also the Oreo Truffle layer seemed to make the cake layer cave in on it’self.

        What’s your altitude? High altitude will want to add a tbls of flour and bake it at 350 for about 30-35 min. You can try 5tbls oil instead of six as well. High altitude is 3500 hundred feet and higher. :-)

    Just made this tonight and it turned out so great!! I had a little trouble getting the cake done but some extra minutes in the oven seemed to do the trick. Really delish and decadent! Thanks for sharing! :)

    I made these for a party I went to last night and they were a HUGE hit, there weren’t any left! I opted to melt chocolate and make a ganache in lieu of the CandiQuick. Here’s a picture:

    These look so good, I have to try them. I do want to try to veganize it though because my roommate is a vegan. I know oreos are actually vegan so thats a start…lol. If I fail at not using animal products, then oh well, more for me lol

    I can’t find white chocolate jello pudding around here. I’ve been to four stores. Is there a sub flavor I can use ?

  15. 190

    When you say flip out? Dose this mean you put the oreo on the bottom aside of the brownies? I’m making these now ?

      I baked the brownie layer in a 9×13 pyrex glass pan and just left them in there. It seemed like it would make a mess trying to pop them out and then put the other layers on.

  16. 192

    I was quite disappointed with these. the brownie seemed cooked through but i found later needed much more time. all of it mixed together made it too rich. the oreo cream cheese was hard to spread. and didnt stick to the brownie. and all of it took too long. I understand a good product takes time but, I could make something faster that was better,

    I live in Venezuela and I ate this red velvet oreo truffle brownie made by my daugther’s friend Karla in Dominican Republic. I loved it!!! It’s too delicious, next july,24 I’ll make one to my friend Fanny in her birthday!!!! But I have a problem: in my country there is’nt white chocolate pudding. Could I use vanilla pudding with grated white chocolat ? If you have another idea, let me know, please. Thanks for all these amazing recipes!!!!!

    This will be the Third time have made this ridiculously decadent desert . So addicting! So I tweaked the recipe a little. Accidentally added the cream cheese to the cake portion to find out that it made the cake more dense and moist…Happy accident. The deliberate part was using melted dark chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet chips(still using the mini-morsels for garnish). The last part was an addition of 1/2 a teaspoon of cayenne pepper stirred into the melting dark chocolate.You don’t get the subtle heat until a pause between bites or completion of the desert. I will be adding the pepper every time i make this now.

    Important question! It says you need Jell-O instant. I cannot find in the instruction what to do with it. So what do I do with the Jell-O intstant?? Or can I leave it out??

    Interesting blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my
    blog stand out. Please let me know where you got your theme.
    Appreciate it
