Chocolate Lasagna is a popular dessert that features layers of chocolate wafer cookies, a creamy mixture of cream cheese, whipped cream, and powdered sugar, and chocolate pudding. It is a no-bake dessert that is easy to make and perfect for any occasion.
The recipe typically calls for using chocolate wafer cookies as the base, but you can also use other types of cookies like Oreos or graham crackers. The crust is usually made by crushing the cookies and mixing them with melted butter and sugar, then pressing the mixture into the bottom of a baking dish.
The cream cheese mixture is made by beating softened cream cheese with milk, heavy cream, and powdered sugar until it’s creamy and smooth. The chocolate pudding mixture is made by mixing instant chocolate pudding mix with cold milk until it thickens.
The layers are then assembled by spreading half of the cream cheese mixture over the cookie crust, followed by the chocolate pudding mixture, and then the remaining cream cheese mixture. Finally, the dessert is topped with mini chocolate chips and chilled until firm.
Chocolate Lasagna is a decadent and delicious dessert that is perfect for chocolate lovers. It can be served chilled and sliced into squares, making it a great option for parties or potlucks.
