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.

How to make Red Velvet Oreo Truffle Brownie Bars!

Red Velvet Oreo Truffle Brownie Bars

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  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 just discovered this recipe. And I’m in love!
    Here are a few tips from my experience.
    If you bake the brownie layer in a 9×13 pyrex glass pan there is no need to flip the brownie layer out. The edges will rise a bit so when you take it out of the oven use a spatula to gently press the edges down.
    The oreo layer is very hard to apply. It doesn’t “stick” to the brownies and the top layer of the brownies will peel off. I took small amounts of the oreo mixture and used my hands to apply the mixture in small sections until it was covered. Then I used a rubber spatula to smooth out the top.
    I used ambrosia chocolate for the melted layer. Much smother and tasty.
    Also they are delicious refrigerated.

    This was a wonderful recipe. It is absolutely delicious! I am so glad I found it. Thank you so much for posting it :)

    Seems like a lot of oil/butter. Possibly not needing so much.I cut down amount of Ores (3/4 of a bag) and truffle layer spread much easier. Also didn’t use 1/2 lb. of chocolate on top. Used about 1 cup of chocolate chips on top. Can’t wait to taste them! They are beautiful!

    How many squares does this cake yield?

    Silly question, I know. But when you crush the oreos, do you have to get rid of the crème filling first? Or do you just crush the whole thing??

  8. 212

    You leave in the filling and crush them whole.

    I made these several months back and didn’t realize it until I went to melt the CandiQuick that I forgot to put the melted butter into the cake mix. I thought it would end up being a dry disaster, but it turned out surprisingly well. I’m going to make them again for the Christmas luncheon my department is having this year, but I’m going to remember to put the butter in this time.

    My brownies crumbled and did not stick together. I noticed the recipe does not include water, could that be why?

    I am planning a valentines day dinner party for a few couple in my family and church. I love this recipe. Can something like a flavor of ice cream be served with these or should they be served alone? If ice cream can be used, what flavor?

    These are so good! Made them for Xmas and everyone liked them. They were easy to make and turned out perfect.

    I would like to mail these overseas but am worried that the Oreo/cream cheese mixture will not hold up. Do you have a recommended alternative? I was thinking perhaps Nutella mixed with Oreos. Any suggestions are welcome. I have a friend that really wants to try them. Thanks in advance.

    Hey! I accidentally bought vanilla pudding instead of white chocolate pudding. Do you think it’ll still work or should I go exchange it?

    I made these tonight for our church Valentine banquet tomorrow night. Hoping and praying they would look like yours. However, they do not. The taste is amazing! But when I cut them, the candy quick chocolate stuff was hard and cracked all over, not making each fudge sized piece look very nice. I’ll serve them anyway, but what is your secret to cutting nicely through the hard chocolate. I used a large knife, thinking I could cut them like large bars. When that didn’t work I went to a smaller knife, both sharp, but it just crushed the hard chocolate. Thanks.

    I can’t wait to make this!
