    This no-bake chocolate lasagna has layers of crushed Oreos, cream, chocolate pudding and chocolate chips! Does it get any better than that?!

    One of my favorite things about this Oreo lasagna is that it requires absolutely no baking! I love easy no-bake desserts when I’m short on time and want to whip something up quick.

    Favorite chocolate dessert

    I love chocolate! There’s no denying that. I’m excited to share this chocolate lasagna recipe with you. I tried this many years ago and finally recreated it. It was so unbelievably easy to make and absolutely delicious!

    Each layer in this chocolate lasagna is just heavenly. It almost reminds of my oreo ice cream cake and the chocolate lasagna from Olive Garden but in my opinion, better! This recipe is definitely a must try for all you chocolate lovers out there!

    4 delicious layers

    1. Oreo crust layer. A simple combination of crushed Oreos and butter make the perfect Oreo crust for this dessert. Just press the mixture into the bottom of a greased baking dish and chill it in the fridge for 5 minutes to set.
    2. Cream layer. This layer tastes similar to cheesecake and is creamy and smooth. Whip your cream cheese until fluffy, then stir in milk and sugar. Then fold in a cup of cool whip to give it a lighter consistency. Spread over the Oreo crust and chill in fridge for 5 more minutes.
    3. Chocolate pudding layer. Whisk together the pudding mix and milk until thick. Then spread over cream layer and refrigerate until the pudding sets, about 5 to 10 minutes.
    4. Cool whip layer. Spread on the remaining cool whip over the pudding and sprinkle with chocolate chips. Chill in fridge for 3-4 hours before serving.

    Tips for success:

    • The pudding consistency should be thick. Make sure it has time to set in the fridge so it doesn’t run!
    • I’d recommend keeping this dish in the fridge as long as possible before serving. I like to pull it out right before serving.
    • You can make this recipe a day in advance, but if it sits in the fridge for any longer, the crust might get soggy.
    • You can also make this dessert ahead of time and freeze it. Then just let it thaw a little before serving.
    • We always top our chocolate lasagna with mini chocolate chips, but more crushed Oreos would taste fantastic too.

      Notes

      Oreos: Keep the cream in the center. You want to crush them pretty fine, so I find using a blender or food processor is easiest. 
      Pudding: Make sure it's the instant. Do not use the cook and serve variation.
      Cool whip: If you prefer a homemade cool whip, it is fairly easy to make. https://www.iheartnaptime.net/how-to-make-cool-whip/
      Make ahead: This dessert can easily be made 24 hours in advanced. The crust will get softer the longer the pudding sits, so I don't like to prep it more than 48 hours in advance. You can also make the crust and then keep the layers in separate bowls until ready to assemble.
