Red Velvet Oreo Truffle Fudge Cake

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…

Ingredients
  

  • 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 3.4 oz package Jell-O Instant Pudding White Chocolate or Vanilla
  • 1 package Oreo cookies
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup evaporated milk
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips + extra for garnish

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Grease sides and bottom of pans.
  • Do not follow cake mix instructions from the box. Add the dry cake mix together with oil, water, eggs, sour cream and pudding mix. Beat with an electric mixer on low for 30 seconds and then medium speed for 1-2 minutes. Pour batter into two 8" or 9" baking pans, sprayed with nonstick cooking spray or lined with parchment paper.
  • 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 extra chocolate chips!

  1. This is some kind of awesome! My husband’s Birthday is next month and he will love this. Thanks for the recipe, friend. :)

  2. what kind of chocolate chips did you use – semisweet? this looks amazing….

  3. Every year around this time I start trying to come up with ideas for my birthday cake. I’m pretty sure I can stop looking..this looks incredible and as a chocoholic this will certainly satisfy me. WOW!

  4. you do not mention the cake pan size used…8 inch, 9inch?

  5. I want to make this in advance for a friends birthday. Do you think its okay to make the day before and pour fudge on it and then take it out to dinner the following night?

    1. You would probably want to fully coat the cake otherwise the layers will dry out. The second option is fill it but don’t do the fudge yet. Keep it in an airtight cake container overnight. Then add fudge just befor leaving for the party. Good luck!

  6. This is absolutely sinister, totally in the best possible way!!! It looks like completely something from a different world. The combination of the dark browns and the red is fabulous…I will dream of this cake tonight…

  7. This cake looks so decedent! I loved the brownies so I can imagine how much I would devour this!!

  8. If I don’t have a packaged Red velvet cake mix n am using a regular red velvet cake recipe, do I need to use the instant pudding?

  9. I actually made this cake recently as per your recipe, and EVERYONE that ate it LOVED IT! It taste amazing, consistency is perfect! Can’t wait to do it again!

    1. Kim Cunha says:

      The recipe says to mix on low for 30 seconds. Is that all the mixing it needs?

  10. stephanie says:

    What an amazing recipe! I made this last night…I am not a baker but it was super easy and it came out better than anything I ever bought! Thank you for the GREAT recipe…everyone is still raving about it!!!

  11. I see no one has received a response on their questions but I hope someone else can help answer mine! I really want to make this for this weekend!!!! What temp/time should I cook if doing cupcakes and how would I do the filling? What would be another good flavor of jello instead of white chocolate?

    1. I always bake cupcakes at 325 for 15-18 min, just check around 12 in case your oven is different then mine. With the pudding in the mix they may take a little longer to bake… check often!
      I would place a layer of the cookie filling right on top. If you wanted to you could roll it out, between wax paper, then use a biscuit cutter to cut circles out of it. You’d get a more precise and consistent topping.
      If you don’t like white chocolate, use regular chocolate pudding.
      Good luck!

  12. First, this is a beautiful site. Secondly this cake looks ah-ma-ziiiiiiiing!

  13. I plan on making this cake tonight for my friends birthday, but I have a couple of questions:

    1- I was going to use chocolate cake instead of red velvet because that’s what she requested. (I guess that’s not really a question.

    2- For the jello instant pudding, I couldn’t find white chocolate, I could only find vanilla. Is that okay?

    3- I haven’t seen any package in the ounces you listed, so I bought a couple boxes to add up to the 3.4, is that okay?

    4- Am I just adding in the powder mi of the pudding and not making the pudding? am I reading that right?

    Please help, this cake looks so good, I really want my friend to have it for her birthday!

    1. I made this last weekend, it was incredible! I’m very irritated by the lack of response by the website hosts, so I hope I can help you out!

      1 – Chocolate will work. It will be very chocolately! Even if you used red velvet cake you end up with a very chocolately cake.

      2 – Vanilla is probably just as fine!

      3 – yes.

      4 – Just the powder.

      Good Luck

  14. Hi! What a wonderful cake!! Question: for the Oreos do I use the whole Oreo or do I remove the cream? Also, how much cake does this make?

    Thanks in advance!
