Oreo red velvet bars

 I´m sure you´ve heard about red velvet cake. Red batter, thanks to reaction of vinegar and baking soda (although you can´t avoid red food coloring), with cream cheese icing is unmistakable dessert for sure. I baked it in a small baking pan – 33,5, but part of the batter run out, so definitely don´t try it and use bigger baking pan. Whatever, it won´t always work as imagined, but it is tasty and if you put it in bigger baking pan, it won´t even run out 😀
