16 Red Velvet Creations That Go Waaaay Beyond Cupcakes

If you’ve been on a quest for the richest, most decadent red velvet cupcake recipe, we’re here to go even further. Now you can get red velvet cookies, donuts, brownies, cheesecakes, truffles and even red velvet pancakes and waffles. That’s right! Pair one of those with our red velvet iced coffee and cream cheese whipped cream, and you can have an entire red velvet breakfast if your hedonistic heart desires. It’s a red velvet world, y’all. Here are 16 sinfully delicious red velvet concoctions to prove it.

1. Red Velvet Oreos: These red velvet sandwich cookies are everything you hope they’ll be and more. The cookies are moist, chewy and chocolatey, and the filling is fluffy, sweet and melt-in-your mouth delicious. Make a double batch, because everyone in the house will want some. (via Cooking Classy)

2. Red Velvet Donuts: These donuts are baked, not fried, making them quick and easy — you can pull them together in about 20 minutes. Bonus: The scratch-made cream cheese frosting is drool-worthy. (via Baker by Nature)

3. Homemade Red Velvet Waffles Dipped in a Donut Glaze: If you have a waffle iron, this decadent treat is *so* within your grasp. These little bite-size morsels dripping with glaze are small, but mighty. You can’t stop yourself from eating one after another. (via Paper & Stitch)

4. Red Velvet Cookie Bars With Cream Cheese Frosting: These red velvet cookie bars are denser and chewier than traditional red velvet cake, but the slight cocoa flavor is exactly what you want it to be. The heavy layer of frosting is so cream-cheesey delicious, you can’t just eat one. But, hey, who’s counting? (via A Simple Pantry)

5. Red Velvet Cream Cheese Muffins: A swirl of cream cheese in the batter adds a subtle flavor blast to these muffins and makes them *extra* moist. The crunchy crumble provides just the right amount of sugary bite. Pack a few in your lunch for a sweet treat when that four o’clock energy slump hits. (via Averie Cooks)

6. Red Velvet Blondies: These bars are moist in the center but crisp around the edges — just like a blond brownie should be, thanks to baked-in brown sugar. Thick and rich and slightly fudgy, they’re the perfect coupling of red velvet cake and blondie. (via Crazy for Crust)

7. Red Velvet Cake Batter Dip: This dip takes us way back to our Dunkaroo days! It’s so easy to make, and tastes exactly like red velvet cake batter and frosting. It makes a perfect snack paired with graham cracker cookies or apple slices. (via Jen’s Favorite Cookies)

8. Red Velvet Cake Ice Cream: Some ice cream cakes are a bit of a disappointment, because where’s the cake? Oh, it’s just shaped like a cake. *Sad face.* But this cream cheese-flavored ice cream has actual red velvet cake layered right in, so you get ice cream and cake in every delicious bite. *Emoji heart eyes.* Make this one for someone you love — it’s just THAT good. (via Joy the Baker)

9. Red Velvet Cake Truffles: These truffles look so impressive, but they’re fairly easy to pull off, thanks to store-bought mix. And the taste — Mmmmm — is everything your red-velvet-cake-loving heart desires. (via Julie’s Eats & Treats)

10. Red Velvet Cheesecake: Look out regular cheesecake, you’ve just been totally out-classed! This is one of the densest, smoothest, creamiest and tangiest (thanks to buttermilk) cheesecakes you’ll ever have the pleasure to bite into. And the thick layer of sweet cream cheese frosting provides the perfect contrast. Take this to your next BBQ and it’ll be the star of the dessert table. (via Life Love and Sugar)

11. Red Velvet Sweet Rolls: These breakfast rolls are loaded with chocolate, cinnamon and nutmeg, then draped in a sweet vanilla glaze. Your kitchen will smell heavenly while they’re baking. But better make a double batch, because they’ll get gobbled up before they’ve even had time to cool. (via Real Housemoms)

12. Red Velvet Cake in a Jar: Could anything be sweeter than these pink and red cakes in a jar? With all of the delicious cocoa and cream cheese flavor you want in a red velvet cake and the perfect presentation, they make a great gift. (via Sugar Hero!)

13. Red Velvet Cheese Ball: The ultimate dip for red velvet lovers is this sweet cream cheese ball that will have them coming back for more. It’s a great dessert for your summer BBQs, or bookmark it for game day and tailgating parties. (via Taste and Tell)

14. Red Velvet Nutella Stuffed Cookies: These stuffed cookies are so addictive — they should come with a warning message. Prepare your tastebuds for a sinfully gooey red velvet cookie with perfect nutty cream inside. They simply ooze deliciousness. (via A Cookie Named Desire)

15. Red Velvet Mug Cake: No baking equipment? No problem! This delectable red velvet mug cake has all the flavors you crave but it can be whipped up in just a few minutes in the microwave. Keep the ingredients at your desk for nights when you’re working late and need a sugar rush.  (via The Novice Chef)

16. Red Velvet Cheesecake Popsicles: These ice pops are easy to make and call for just a few ingredients — powdered sugar, milk and Cool Whip. It’s the layers of pre-made red velvet cake that make them extra special. They make a nice indulgent treat after dinner in the summer time, so kick back on the porch and let them melt in your mouth.
