Please tell me that I’m not the only one who craves gooey “something” about every other day. Okay, maybe every day. I can’t be helped. My boys want to eat ice cream for dessert every night. Me? I want ice cream with a warm and gooey chocolate sauce on top. I just gotta have that gooey something. Red Velvet and White Chocolate Gooey Bars definitely take care of the gooey cravings! My boys put ice cream on top of the bars and are happy to have the best of both worlds.
This recipe is a classic in my recipe box. It’s a favorite that’s been in there forever. It’s a classic recipes because it can be altered just a little to fit with any holiday or gooey craving. And no matter what combination I dream up, they always turn out amazingly yummy.
For a recipe in my box to be considered “classic favorite”, it has to be a few things. It must be reliably and unbelievably tasty. It must be quick and easy and made with simple ingredients. Red Velvet Gooey Bars are all of those things. See why it has been a favorite in the recipe box forever?
On Valentines Day I like to make something special for Justin and I. I will even spend a little extra time to make it special. But then again I want my boys to feel loved too but run out of time for making another something extra special. That’s why these Red Velvet and White Chocolate Gooey Bars are perfect for sharing the love with them. Let’s face it…Mom’s don’t always have time to make something fancy for every occasion. Even though these bars are simple they taste like what Valentines Day should taste like! My boys will surely feel extra special!
Surprise your kids and your hubby and make them feel special with these amazing bars. After all, the way to a man’s heart is through his belly!
Red Velvet Gooey Bars
- 1 box Red Velvet cake mix
- 1 egg
- 1/2 c. butter softened
- 4 oz. sweetened condensed milk
- 1 c. white chocolate chips
- 1/2 c. chopped almonds
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Grease a 9 x 9" pan.
- Mix cake mix, egg and butter together.
- Divide dough in thirds. Press 2/3 of the dough in the bottom of the pan.
- Bake for 6 minutes
- Drizzle sweetened condensed milk on top of baked crust. Sprinkle chocolate chips and walnuts over sweetened condensed milk.
- Drop remaining 1/3 cake dough over the sweetened condensed milk layer. The dough is a little sticky and hard to place. I use my fingers to try and smooth it out as best as I can. It's okay if it doesn't completely cover the sweetened condensed milk layer. It will fill in as it bakes.
- Bake for an additional 20-23 minutes.

We made these and they are so good and easy! Next time I make it, I will double the recipe–that way I can use the whole bag of chocolate chips, and pretty much the whole can of sweetened condensed milk, and I won’t have left overs. Thanks for sharing this one!

What a great idea to double the batch! We were fighting over the last few anyway! I found a squeezable bottle of sweetened condensed milk in the Hispanic section at the grocery store. I love it because I can measure out and only use what I need! Although I must admit that I never have a hard time getting rid of extra sweetened condensed milk or chocolate chips!!

I am going to make these for Dad to share on Valentines Day. I might try using milk chocolate chips instead of the white chips just to see what it tastes like.
I would way rather be home for dinner on Valentines Day, so if you have any good main dish ideas for this holiday let me know.
