Red Velvet Cherry Dream Bars – a red velvet cookie crust, a sweet cheese layer, cherry pie filling, vanilla pudding and a whipped topping make these bars the perfect holiday treat. Or better yet, enjoy them all year ’round.
It’s almost Valentine’s Day!
Do you have big plans?
We don’t. After we were married a few years we just decided to stop. There are things we do for each other all year long, so we don’t feel the need to spend the money on that one holiday. Besides, if I want a box of chocolates, I’ll go buy them myself. 😉
For these bars, I wanted a red velvet crust because well, Valentine’s Day. I used a cake mix without adding the water to make it more of a thicker cookie base. I’d thought about using the red velvet Oreos , but didn’t think they’d give me the color for the crust I was going for. Since I used the cake mix, I had to use a 9 X 13-inch baking dish. I usually make my Dream Bar recipes in an 8 X 8 dish, but not everything will fit in the pan because the cake mix expands so much. If you want to cut the recipe in half, my suggestion would be to use one package of the Red Velvet Oreos and then proceed with the crust as directed in this recipe.
