HOW TO MAKE CHOCOLATE LASAGNA
Cookie Crust: Crush cookies into fine crumbs (I used my food processor) and mix in a bowl with melted butter.
Mix well and press the crumbs into the bottom of a 9×13 baking dish.
Cover and chill for 30 minutes or more.
Cheesecake Layer: In a bowl, cream together softened cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy.
Stir in 1/2 the whipped topping until smooth.
Spread the mixture over cookie crust layer. Chill in refrigerator at least 30 minutes.
Chocolate Pudding Layer: In a large bowl, combine both pudding mixes and milk until creamy, thick, and smooth.
Spread over cheesecake layer. 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 IT
- chocolate shavings (use your veggie peeler)
- chocolate sprinkles
- sprinkled with cocoa powder
- mini chocolate chips
- chocolate syrup (lightly drizzled)
- crushed oreo cookies
- toasted nuts (I like pecans)
CAN I USE SOMETHING INSTEAD OF COOL WHIP?
You are free to make your whipped topping from scratch (roughly 3 cups of whipping cream). Don’t use the stuff in the spray can, it doesn’t stay fluffy enough.
Just be sure to use equal amounts.

TIPS FOR NO LEFTOVERS
- freeze for 15-30 minutes to make it easier to slice
- wipe knife between slicing
- don’t eat the cream filling from the cookies, it’s important
- make sure your pudding mixes are INSTANT and NOT Cook & 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, cheesecake
