Who likes to bake sweet treats this time of year?! I never find myself having time in the summer, and the holidays I’m baking for other people in large quantities so it kind of looses its charm. Sometimes it’s just nice to make something for you and your significant other! (Or galentine, if that suits you better!) I promise, once you taste an Oreo Truffle Red Velvet Brownie you will understand when I say, these are everything I love about desserts and more.
These brownies are split up into three exquisite layers. On the bottom you have your red velvet, then the oreo truffle, then topped with a layer of fudgy chocolate. I promise you will never want a simple brownie ever again!
- RED VELVET LAYER
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 2 cups sugar
- 4 eggs
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- ½ cup unsweetened cocoa
- 1⅓ cups flour
- ½ tsp. salt
- 1 fluid ounce bottle of red food coloring
- OREO TRUFFLE LAYER
- 1 pkg. Double Stuffed Oreos
- 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
- CHOCOLATE LAYER
- 1½ cups milk chocolate chips
- ½ cup semi-sweet milk chocolate chips
- 1 Tablespoon shortening
- Cream butter and sugar together. Add eggs and blend well. Add vanilla, salt, cocoa and flour. Be careful not to overbeat. Add food coloring and mix again.
- Pour into a greased 9 X 13 pan.
- Bake at 350 F for 20-25 minutes. Allow to cool completely.
- While brownies are cooling, make Oreo truffle layer.
- First, start by crushing Oreos finely in a food processor or by putting them in a ziplock bag and smashing them until finely ground with a rolling pin.
- When Oreos are finely crushed, mash softened cream cheese and crushed Oreos until well combined.
- When Brownies have cooled completely, place layer of Oreo truffle on top.
- Next is your chocolate layer. Combine chocolate chips and shortening together in a medium microwave safe bowl. Microwave in 30 second increments, stirring in between each increment until melted and smooth.
- Evenly spread over the top of Oreo Truffle layer.
- Let set up in fridge before cutting into.
What are you doing to celebrate Valentine’s Day this year? Are you going to throw a Galentine’s Day Brunch or are you planning an intimate date night? Whatever it is, I hope you have a great time! I really think this holiday gets a bad rep… I think it’s a great excuse to celebrate your love if you’re in a relationship. And if you’re not, then hey, celebrate yourself for the day!
