How to make Chocolate Lasagna

Oreo Crust: Crush Oreos into cookie crumbs (I used my food processor) and mix in a bowl with melted butter. Mix well and press the crumbs into the bottom of the pan to form a first layer.

Cover and chill for 30 minutes or more.

Cream Cheese Layer: In a bowl, blend together softened cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy.

Stir in 1/2 the whipped topping until smooth. Spread the cream cheese mixture over chocolate cookie crust layer. Chill in refrigerator at least 30 minutes.

Chocolate Pudding Layer: In a large bowl, combine chocolate and cheesecake pudding mixes with cold milk until creamy, thick, and smooth.

Spread a layer of chocolate pudding mix over the cream cheese filling. Chill in the refrigerator at least 15 minutes or until pudding is set.

Topping Layer: Spread the remaining whipped topping over the chocolate layer and garnish with sprinkles or your favorite topping.

Ways to Garnish Chocolate Lasagna

  • chocolate curls or chocolate shavings (use your veggie peeler)
  • chocolate sprinkles
  • sprinkle with cocoa powder
  • mini chocolate chips
  • chocolate syrup (lightly drizzled)
  • crushed Oreo cookies
  • toasted nuts (I like pecans)
  • dusting of powdered sugar

What is a substitute for Cool Whip?

You are free to make your whipped topping from scratch (roughly 3 cups of heavy cream). Beat until you have stiff peaks.

Don’t use the stuff in the spray can, it doesn’t stay fluffy enough. Just be sure to use equal amounts.

How far in advance can I make it?

You can whip together this dessert up to 3 days in advance. Be sure to store in the refrigerator, tightly wrapped.

Tips for No Leftovers

  • Use whole Oreos.
  • No food processor? Place cookies in a plastic bag and beat with a rolling pin into fine crumbs or small pieces.
  • A 9×13 glass dish is perfect for this dessert.
  • Freeze for 15-30 minutes to make it easier to slice.
  • Wipe knife between slicing.
  • Make sure your pudding mixes are INSTANT and NOT Cook & Serve.
  • Keep tightly covered with plastic wrap until ready to serve.
  • Chill at least 2 hours in the fridge or in the freezer for 1 hour to make sure it’s set.
  • Want more intense flavor? Switch up the pudding flavors with chocolate, white chocolate, chocolate fudge, or cheesecake.
