How to make Red Velvet Oreo Truffle Brownie Bars!

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


  • 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).
  • 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.
  • Bake for 20-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean (ovens vary so watch closely). Let cool completely before flipping out.
  • Crush package of Oreos in a food processor (or in a large plastic bag and rolling pin).
  • Melt cream cheese for 15 seconds in a microwave to soften.
  • Stir together crushed Oreos and cream cheese until blended smooth.
  • 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.
  • Melt chocolate candy bark (or chocolate chips) and pour over top Oreo truffle layer.
  • Sprinkle with mini chocolate chips while still warm.
  • Let cool competely before cutting into squares.

  1. Oh my! Decadent my be an understatement here! Thanks for the recipe Courtney!

  2. Definitely going to be making these for my Valentine’s Day tea! :)

  3. OH MY! Stretchy pants will be a definite must. These bars look delicious!

    1. I will love YOU forever for visiting and commenting! Thank you!

  4. This looks amazing! I pinned your recipe and hope to make it soon! Thank you!

  5. Absolutely irresistible, chocolatey gooey goodness! Cannot wait to make these! Thank you for sharing.

  6. Sorry for the dumb question…I’m in Canada but I’ve never heard of Candiquick..what is it? any ideas where I can find it? Thanks

    1. Not a dumb question at ALL! It’s a chocolate candy bark found in the baking aisle near the chocolate chips. You could always just use milk or semi-sweet chocolate chips instead :) The real magic is with the other 2 layers!

      1. awesome..great thanks I’ll check it out..can’t wait to make them

    2. Abby King says:

      I have a question….for the cake mix…do you use the Duncan Hines recipe and then add what your recipe has or just use your recipe? Thank you!!!!

      1. Follow my recipe, don’t make the Duncan Hines separately. Use the cake mix in my recipe.

        1. Adding onto her question, my husband doesn’t like red velvet so I was going to do regular chocolate brownies instead, still add the pudding mixture?

  7. wow, this cake looks amazing.I would love to make it but I have never heard of 1 package (1lb) chocolate bark (CandiQuick), can any tell what it is so I can see if there is something similar here that I can use. Thank you

    1. Hi Sharon! Chocolate bark is like a chocolate candy. You can easily substitute in regular chocolate (melt 1 lb of morsels in semi-sweet or milk – milk chocolate will be the closest to bark). Hope this helps! :)

  8. I am thinking of adding melted carmel on top of the oreos…

    1. Hi, Debra. Your comment about caramel was five years ago…did it work? I wonder if that would solve the potential problem some noted about the truffle not sticking to the red velvet brownie.

  9. I’m curious why you used chocolate bark instead of milk chocolate? Does it taste better? I’m asking because I am not a big fan of the bark, but will try it.

    1. Hi Michelle! I had the bark on hand and knew it melted very easily (this recipe was just a last-minute whim idea). You can absolutely use chocolate (I’ve recommended that to a lot of people here in the comments if they either (a) don’t want to use bark or (b) have never heard of bark.

  10. I just made these, and although they taste delicious the red velvet cake is super crumbly. It loses all form when I take it out of the pan. Any ideas on how to prevent this next time?

    1. They are yummy but I had the very same problem & question :/
