Chocolate Lasagna Ingredients

You’ll need:

  • 1 (14.3-ounce) package of Oreo cookies (regular, not double stuffed)
  • ½ cup of melted butter or margarine
  • 8 ounces of cream cheese
  • 16 ounces of Cool Whip, divided
  • 1 cup of powdered sugar
  • 1 (5.1-ounce) box of instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 (5.1-ounce) box of instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 3 cups of milk
  • chocolate syrup
  • Optional topping: Chocolate curls or your favorite chocolate candy

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

PUDDING: Make sure you are using instant pudding mix in this dessert recipe rather than the kind that you have to cook.

TOPPING: There are plenty of ways to add even more fun toppings to your dessert lasagna. Try mini chocolate chips, sprinkles, or chopped nuts.

COOL WHIP: If you prefer to make your own homemade whipped cream, we have a recipe here to help you.

How To Make This Chocolate Lasagna Recipe

First Layer

STEP ONE: Add the whole Oreos (cream centers included) to a food processor and pulse until the crumbles are even. Set aside one cup of crushed Oreos for the topping.

STEP TWO: Mix the crushed Oreo cookie crumbs with half a cup of melted butter or margarine.

STEP THREE: Press the cookie and butter mixture into an even layer in the bottom of a 9×13 pan. Place pan in the refrigerator to chill.

Second Layer

STEP ONE: With an electric mixer, mix eight ounces of cream cheese, eight ounces of Cool Whip, and one cup of powdered sugar together. Spread the cream cheese mixture over the cooled chocolate cookie crust layer. Place back in the refrigerator to chill.

PRO TIP:

Make sure your cream cheese is at room temperature so that you don’t end up with lumps in your creamy filling.

Third Layer

STEP ONE: Mix the packages of instant vanilla pudding and instant chocolate pudding together with three cups of cold milk. Spread on top of the cream cheese layer.

STEP TWO: Sprinkle with remaining crumbled Oreos.

STEP THREE: Drizzle a light layer of chocolate syrup over the entire cake.

STEP FOUR: Top with chocolate curls or your favorite chocolate candy chopped into small pieces, if you like.

STEP FIVE: Refrigerate until ready to serve.

PRO TIP:

Chilling this dessert overnight will make it easier to cut and give it a thicker consistency. If you plan to make it a day ahead, add it to the fridge overnight.

How To Serve

Every chocolate lover won’t be able to resist diving into this delicious dessert. Serve it with a warm mug of homemade hot chocolate or a chocolate milkshake for an over-the-top treat.

Some of my other favorite no-bake chocolate desserts include our no bake chocolate pudding pie and our no bake Oreo cheesecake.

Storage

IN THE FRIDGE: Store leftovers of this chocolate lasagna dessert covered with plastic wrap in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. 

IN THE FREEZER: You can freeze the chocolate lasagna for up to 2 months. Allow it to thaw in the refrigerator before serving.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

You could use Nilla wafers or a graham cracker crust in place of the chocolate cookie crust for this easy dessert.

Yes! This great recipe goes by many names, including chocolate lush, chocolate dream, and chocolate lasagna.

Can I make this ahead of time?

This recipe is actually best if you make it ahead of time and let it chill to make sure all of the layers are set.
