Strawberry Cake Mix Brownies Are So Delicious

We’re all over recipes that feature Oreo here on DIY Candy, and the latest one is amazing: strawberry cake mix brownies. Because sometimes cake mix is such a nice shortcut. AND there are Oreos too. How can you resist?

These bars are easy to put together and they use heart sprinkles which makes them perfect for Valentine’s Day. If you have children, a great job for them is crushing up Oreos and sprinkling the edible hearts on top!

I absolutely love simple recipes that taste delicious, and this falls into that category. The combination of moist cake and Oreo dessert is right up my alley!

Tips and Thoughts for This Recipe

Pick a moist strawberry cake mix for this recipe so that your brownies don’t end up too dry. I always have good luck with Betty Crocker Super Moist mix, but choose your favorite.

Maybe you’re wondering why not brownie mix? Because I’ve never seen a strawberry brownie mix, so this is a hack. Yes, you can make strawberry brownies from scratch, but this is a shortcut. Also cake mix is less dense. These aren’t as crusty and dense as regular brownies would be.

Don’t scorch the butter when you melt it. You want it just melted, not bubbling hot. If there are still pieces unmelted when you remove it from the microwave, just stir until they are gone.

The chocolate Oreos add a bit of a chocolate flavor to the recipe, but you can go with Golden Oreos too. Or a completely different cookie all together! You can crush up whatever you have in your cabinet. Just keep it crunchy because that’s an important part of this recipe in my humble opinion.

There are some FUN sprinkles out there! I just love all the multi colored and shaped baking sprinkles that are available. Don’t be afraid to do a little searching and get lips, stars, unicorns or whatever else floats your boat.
