My chocolate lasagna recipe is layers upon layers of delicious and indulgent flavors that come together to create the perfect treat!

Here’s what you’ll need to make a no bake chocolate pudding dessert:

For this easy no bake chocolate lasagna recipe we’ll be using a handful of really easy to locate (and keep on hand) ingredients!

You’ll need Oreos, butter, cream cheese, sugar, milk, cool whip, instant chocolate pudding, and semi-sweet chocolate chips!

The fresh ingredients are harder to keep on hand but I usually have them in my refrigerator or freezer so that I can thaw them out when needed and whip up a delicious dessert without much notice!

How to make a no bake chocolate lasagna:

Add the pack of Oreos to a food processor, and crush into fine crumbs.

In a medium bowl, pour in the cookie crumbs and melted butter. Stir well until combined.

Pour into a 9 x 13 baking dish and use a spatula (or your hands) to evenly press the crumbs across the dish.

In the same medium bowl, add the cream cheese and beat with a hand mixer until fluffy. Add in the 2 tbsp of milk and sugar and mix well.

Add one of the 8 oz Cool Whip containers into the cream cheese mixture, and mix with a spoon or silicone spatula.

Spread the cream cheese mixture over the cookie crust, and put it into the fridge to set for 10 minutes. (Waiting the full 10 minutes makes the next steps much easier, as the cream cheese will be more firm, and the chocolate pudding mixture will spread more evenly without mixing together)

While the cream cheese mixture is setting, in a large bowl, add the pudding mixes and 2 3/4 cups of milk and beat on medium speed until it starts to thicken.

Spread the pudding mixture over the cream cheese layer. Put back into the fridge to set for another 10 minutes.

Once set, gently spread the remaining 8 oz of Cool Whip over the pudding layer, being careful not to mix the two layers together. 

Cover and let chill for at least 4 hours in the fridge or 1 hour in the freezer.

Can this no bake chocolate pudding dessert recipe be made in advance?

Absolutely. You can make this chocolate lasagna recipe a few days in advance. I’d say about 3 days ahead of time and you’ll be totally fine! It gives everything a chance to meld together a bit.

While of course you can make this no bake chocolate pudding dessert the day you need it, you can also prepare in advance without worrying about things getting weird or not serving up nicely!

    I’ll never forget; the first time I made a no-bake chocolate lasagna we were bringing it to a family party and one family member thought I literally meant lasagna and was picturing a dessert that combined chocolate with noodles! He was quite relieved when he saw us dishing it up and realized it was just a delicious layered dessert. LOL. Pinned.
