Red Velvet Oreo Truffle Hearts - Perfect for Valentines Day Dessert and SO delicious!

I am really excited to share this recipe with the Just Us Four readers today! I love making Oreo Cookie Truffle Balls, but I thought it would be fun to mix things up for Valentine’s Day and make some Red Velvet Oreo Truffle Hearts! There are a little time consuming, but totally worth it. I ended up bringing all my goodies to a Super Bowl party on Sunday and they were gone before half time! These truffles are a total win!

Red Velvet Donuts

You know what happens when you have 12+ adults and just as many kids over to your house on a Sunday evening? You sort of forget to confirm that everything for your Monday blog post is in order. So, that is why this lovely post is coming to you so much later than usual. We’ll call it the Super Bowl effect. I am beyond excited to share these red velvet donuts with you though. As I mentioned, red velvet is my favorite so making red velvet donuts just seems like an obvious recipe for me.

Red Velvet is hands down my favorite type of dessert. I love it when Valentine’s Day rolls around because it means that red velvet is so much easier to find. Of course, for me, red velvet treats have to come with cream cheese or they just aren’t “right.” I made red velvet cheesecake bars and they were the perfect combination of red velvet flavor with cream cheese mixed in!
