11 Red Velvet Recipes for Valentine's Day

Plus, find bonus Valentine's Day desserts in our recipe collection!

By: Emily Racette, Editor,

Nothing says "Valentine's Day dessert"more than a red velvet cake. It's red, it's festive, and it practically says, "I love you." This year, choose one of these amazing 11 Red Velvet Recipes for Valentine's Day to make for your special someone. You'll find twists on the classic red velvet cake and red velvet brownies.

After a romantic dinner, what do you usually have a taste for? If you're thinking cake, then our red velvet cake recipes are for you. We have a few poke cakes that are just as much fun to make as they are to eat. If you want something cute and intimate, then make a red velvet cake in a jar. It serves one, so you can either share or make one for each of you. Third, we have an exceptional red velvet gooey butter cake, where the frosting is, in fact, the icing on the cake.

If cake isn't your thing, then take a look at our red velvet brownies. These are no ordinary brownies. Peppermint, cream cheese, white chocolate frosting...each recipe has a delicious feature that makes it stand out from the others. Pick your favorite (or your other half's favorite) and get baking. Whatever sweet thing your 'sweet thing' has a taste for, you can find it here.

We've also included a few bonus desserts for Valentine's Day! Whether you plan on making several desserts to share, or your significant other doesn't enjoy red velvet as much as you do, you'll find plenty of options below.

Red Velvet Cake Recipes

It's tough to say no to cake, and on Valentine's Day you have the perfect reason to indulge. These red velvet desserts are made using cake mix, so they are a breeze to whip up! 

  • Elegant Red Velvet Poke Cake

    Put a smile on your date's face by offering a slice of Elegant Red Velvet Poke Cake. A cheesecake-flavored pudding fills the insides of the cake, which is topped with more pudding, whipped cream, and Oreo cookies.

  • Red Velvet Cake in a Jar

    You only need three ingredients and five minutes to whip up a Red Velvet Cake in a Jar. It makes one serving, so either make two jars or grab two spoons and share one with your special someone.

  • Red Velvet Gooey Butter Cake

    Cream cheese and butter play a big part in making this incredible frosting. It will be hard to say which part you like better: the red velvet cake or the butter frosting.

  • Red Velvet Poke Cake

    This may become one of your favorite red velvet recipes. The cake is filled with sweetened condensed milk and cinnamon creamer and is topped with more creamer, cool whip, frosting, and chocolate shavings. Need we say more?

  • Red Velvet Cheesecake Cake

    Can't decide between having cake or cheesecake? Then make both! Inspired by a recipe from The Cheesecake Factory, this red velvet treat is the best of both worlds.

  • Red Velvet Brownie Poke Cake

    This recipe combines the goodness of red velvet with the decadence of a brownie - it's really the best of both worlds! The frosting is a combination of whipped topping and cream cheese, which gives this cake the perfect amount of creaminess. You won't want to miss this dessert!

Red Velvet Brownies and Dessert Bars

Valentine's Day just isn't the same without a festive red dessert, is it? These brownie recipes are all made from scratch and your significant other will definitely appreciate the extra effort. Red Velvet Rice Krispy Treats is a quick and easy dessert recipe that gets its color from red velvet cake mix.

  • Red Velvet Brownies with White Chocolate Frosting

    True red velvet has just a hint of cocoa to it. That's what makes these brownies one of the best red velvet recipes you'll ever find. What's more, a white chocolate buttercream frosting covers the top of the whole batch.

  • Red Velvet Cream Cheese Brownies

    Your better half may find you more irresistible after serving these irresistible brownies. The whole batch will be gone in no time.

  • Red Velvet Peppermint Brownies

    Peppermint is a great little something to add to a winter treat. Add to that a buttercream frosting, and this dessert may be your favorite part of the whole evening.

  • Red Velvet and Cream Cheese Brownies

    Red velvet brownies make up the bottom half of this dessert while a cheesecake mixture makes up the top half. You'll certainly have a hard time saying "no" to a second (or third) piece.

  • Red Velvet Rice Krispy Treats

    If you want to make a delicious dessert for your sweetie but don't feel like baking, then these rice krispy treats are a great option. A red velvet cake mix turns them red and white chocolate drizzled on top makes them even more festive.
