Red Velvet Oreo Truffle Cheesecake Bars make a Great Valentines Day Recipe

Updated on February 10, 2013

I have an obsession with Red Velvet Cake, as well as cheesecake of any kind. My hubby had a birthday yesterday and I wanted to make something different this year. Not only was this recipe a hit in my home, but where he works as well. It's not for anyone dieting, unless you're like me and don't mind having a treat every now and then if you've been doing good. It's very rich, and would make for a great Valentines Day Treat.

Red Velvet Oreo Truffle Cheesecake Bars

There are 3 parts to this recipe, the first being the most time consuming since it has too bake, but overall it's really not too bad.

Red Velvet Bars

  • 1 box of Red Velvet Cake mix ( I used Duncan Hines)
  • 3 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking cocoa
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 c oil
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp water


Combine dry ingredients and then stir in eggs, oil, vanilla, and water. Spray a 13x9 inch baking pan with non stick, or bakers joy, or whatever non stick method you prefer and then spread the batter into the pan. It will be thick so be sure to spread well and into the corners. Bake at 350 for 20-22 minutes. Cool completely.

Oreo Truffle

  • 1 bag Oreos crushed fine
  • 1 box Philadelphia cream cheese (softened in the microwave for about 20 seconds)

Mix crushed Oreos and cream cheese together well and then spread it evenly over red velvet bars.

Chocolate/Cream Cheese top

  • 1 bag white chocolate chips
  • 4 Tbsp butter
  • 1 box Philadelphia cream cheese (softened)


In a bowl, melt chocolate and butter in 15 seconds increments stirring as you do until completely melted. Mix in cream cheese completely and then spread on top of Oreo truffle. I then sprinkled a layer of mini chocolate chips over the entire thing just to break up the white.

Although this can be devoured immediately, I found that it was so much better having been chilled for a couple of hours. I cut these up into small squares as you would with fudge because it is very rich and only takes a bite to satisfy you. This recipe made approx 30 servings.

    @Mhatter99 lol, well, some may prefer it not chilled, I personally liked it chilled. Let me know if you try it. Thank you for commenting.

    @Mackyi thank you for stopping by. This recipe looks like a lot of trouble, but it honestly isn't. Baking the red velvet is what takes the most time but the rest is a snap.

    @lcbenefield lol, I completely understand, it is definitely not something you want to eat on regularly but it sure is good. Thanks for commenting

    Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe. The color of these cheesecake bars alone make them the perfect theme for Valentine's day. I really like to cook, but not much of a baker. However, I know I can do a good job with this recipe.
