I made these for Valentine’s Day, but just couldn’t wait…these are the newest version of “gooey butter cake bars” and by far my favorite of all time. I love the red velvet/cream cheese combo, but sometimes the frosting is just too tart for me. This has a similar vibe but the sweetness of the Oreos balances out the cream cheese perfectly!
THE STORY: I started making gooey butter cakes right after college. I used to work for Aramark at UCF and in my free time, I would experiment with recipes. I made so so so many Paula Deen gooey butter cakes, but honestly forgot about them until recently. I’m working on a Valentine’s eBook and this is one of the recipes, but I just had to post it sooner. It’s that good.
TIPS: I always use parchment paper (when I remember) because it makes everything so much easier to slice. I truly didn’t know they had pre-cut sheets until this year and let me tell you, it’s been life changing. These are the ones that I use- parchment sheets.
SPRINKLE OF CREATIVITY: If you are in a chocolatey mood, swap out regular Oreo crumbs with the dark chocolate Oreos. It’ll give it the extra hint of richness! Idk if richness is a word, but it makes them richer. Chocolatey-er.Print
