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!

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.

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 the cream cheese mixture over the Oreo cookie 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 the Best Oreo Lasagna

  • Keep the cream in the center of the Oreo cookies. Using a blender or food processor is the easiest way to crush them into fine cookie crumbs.
  • Soften the cream cheese at room temperature before mixing the cream filling so that it gets nice and fluffy.
  • The pudding consistency should be thick. Make sure it has time to set in the fridge so it doesn’t run!
  • After you add a layer, chill the dessert in the fridge for about 5 to 10 minutes before adding the next one on top.
  • I’d recommend keeping this dish in the fridge as long as possible before serving. I like to pull it out right before serving.
  • We always top our chocolate lasagna with mini chocolate chips, but more crushed Oreos would taste fantastic too.

Making in Advance

This chocolate lasagna dessert can easily be made 24 hours in advance. The longer it sits the softer the Oreo crust will become, so I don’t like to prep it more than 48 hours ahead of time.

Another option is to prepare the crust and keep the remaining layers separate. Then assemble the dessert when you’re ready to chill and serve.

“This came out perfect! My grandmother used to make something so similar when I was younger. It brought back great memories! I even added some Hershey kisses and s’mores pretzels on the top! So good! Thanks for sharing this recipe!”

    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 chocolate pudding. 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.
