Prepare red velvet cake mix according to the directions on the box. (I used two round 8 inch pans.) Let the cake cool completely.
In a medium-sized bowl, prepare the cheesecake filling according to the directions on the box. Transfer the bowl to the refrigerator to thicken.
Chop Oreos into large pieces, but not crumbs. I used a meat tenderizer.
When the cake layers are cool, cut into 1 inch squares.
The cheesecake filling should be thick enough at this point. Fold in the Cool Whip.
In a large clear bowl, create the bottom layer by arranging the pieces of cake from one of the cake layers. Next, spread a half of the cheesecake filling on top of the cake. Sprinkle with half of the chopped Oreos. Repeat with the other cake layer, cheesecake filling, and Oreos.
Refrigerate for at least two hours, but overnight is best. Store trifle in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
