Red Velvet Oreos

February 8, 2012
I’m sorry if your one of those people that hate all things Red Velvet around Valentines Day.  If you are, I feel sorry for you.  I do.  Red Velvet is Valentines Day.  It is the dessert for this wonderful, romantic holiday.  So I’ve gone crazy with Red Velvet and created some amazing Red Velvet desserts for you. And I didn’t just color the desserts red.  I actually created the red velvet flavor in these unique desserts!


First off are these Red Velvet Oreos.  One of your favorite childhood treats, twisted into this delicious Red Velvet version.
I’m not going to lie to you, creating this recipe was not easy.  I struggled to get the oreo texture AND the red velvet flavor all into one small little dessert.  But I did it!  And they came out better than I ever expected.


One thing I struggled with was getting the oreo cookies all the same size.  My solution was to bake the cookies in one baking sheet, creating one large red velvet cookie.  I then used a round cookie cutter to cut out the cookies.  This enabled the cookies to be identical in size and shape.  
My husband was addicted to these oreos.  He couldn’t get enough.  When the last oreo was gone, he was seriously disappointed.  Maybe for Valentines Day I’ll bake him another batch.  But shhh, don’t tell him :). 


Make a big batch of these for your Valentines Day and everyone around will be asking for more.  I promise!

    I’m a red velvet all-day-every-day kinda person.  V-Day or otherwise.  And these sound amazing.  I love the idea of making one HUGE cookie and then cutting out pieces…makes my life SO much easier.

    I like Valentine’s Day, I just don’t find Red Velvet Cake very tasty. It’s pretty for sure, but… well. Maybe if it were chocolate red velevt cake… 😉 These look very pretty!

    These done in heart shapes for you husband on Valentine’s Day would be cute.  They look great and kudos to you for creating your own Oreos recipe.  I’m still a red velvet virgin.  Yup…it’s true!
