Bar #14: White Chocolate & Red Velvet Cheesecake

White chocolate and red velvet just go together…especially at Christmas.
These bars have a cookie-like “crust”, a cheesecake center and frosting on top…joy to the world!
Shopping List
1 box red velvet cake mix
1/3 cup butter, melted plus an additional 2 tablespoons, softened
4 eggs
3 (8 oz) packages cream cheese, softened
1 (14 oz) can Sweetened Condensed Eagle Brand Milk
1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips, divided
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons milk
2 cups powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Grease a 9×13 inch pan.  In a small bowl, combine cake mix, 1/3 cup melted butter and one egg.  Pat evenly into pan to form a crust.  Bake 14 to 16 minutes or until golden brown.  Let cool 15 minutes.
In a small bowl, melt 2/3 cup of white chocolate chips in microwave (stirring every 30 seconds).  Let cool 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy.  Add in Eagle Brand, melted chocolate, vanilla and remaining 3 eggs and beat until smooth.  Pour over crust.  Bake 40-50 minutes or until set.  Let rest 30 minutes.
While cheesecake is cooling, prepare “icing” to pour over cheesecake: Melt remaining 2/3 cup white chocolate chips and 2 tablespoons butter in microwave (stirring every 30 seconds).  Add in milk and powdered sugar, beat with electric mixer until smooth.  Pour over cheesecake and refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving.
I garnished mine with a few Christmas sprinkles because…this time of year, you simply can’t have too many sprinkles.

    These look delicious, though I'm confused about the first part of the recipe that says combine cookie mix and one egg, because neither of those things are listed on the ingredient list.

    Oh my goodness… I HAVE to try these!!! I make red velvet something every Saturday the Aggies play. I am 100% convinced they lost this weekend to LSU because I also made a pineapple upside down cake for my husband and of course it has yellow in it. Sadly, I'm not kidding. I messed with tradition. You just don't do that. Soooooo…I will HAVE to make this for the Aggies last season game against Mizzou this Saturday! Let's hope it brings a win!

    I can't wait to make this recipe! Do I actually need 4 eggs, in the second part of the recipe it says to add the remaining 3 eggs? I just want to make sure I don't mess it up. Thanks so much for all your amazing recipes!!

    Geez! I should stop blogging at 4:30 am! I made way too many typos in this one recipe! I have corrected everything! Yes, you need 4 eggs! I'm so sorry!

    Hi Shay! I was wondering if it matters if you use a glass dish or metal? I was wanting to make them in my cute glass Christmas dish!:) I made these a few weeks ago in a metal pan….omg delicious!!! Every time I make one of your recipes it becomes my new favorite!:) Thank you!!

  • Mix and Match Mama December 11, 2013 at 6:24 pm

    I almost always use glass but you can absolutely use metal too!

    Have you ever tried freezing the left overs of these? I have so much left, of everything, from my New Year's Eve party and would love to try and save some for later. Just curious if you've had success with it.

    They would freeze beautifully!!!
