Since Thanksgiving is in a few days I thought I’d share one of my favorite dessert recipes. This isn’t your typical Thanksgiving pie or a complicated cake, it’s a simple Chocolate pudding dessert that I only make on special occasions with lots of people around…..otherwise, I’ll eat the entire thing in one sitting!
This Chocolate Lasagna recipe is a favorite in our house. If you’re looking for something quick and easy, try this. You won’t be sorry!
Just looking at that makes my mouth water!
What you’ll need
1 package regular Oreo cookies – about 36 cookies (Don’t use Double Stuffed, even though its tempting!)
6 Tablespoon of melted butter
8 ounce softened cream cheese
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 Tablespoons cold milk
12-ounce tub Cool Whip, divided
2 of the 3.9-ounce packages Chocolate Instant Pudding
3 1/4 cups cold milk
1 1/2 cups mini chocolate chips
Begin by crushing the Oreo cookies. I used my food processor for this, but you can also place them in a large ziplock bag and crush them. When your Oreos have turned into fine crumbs, transfer the Oreo crumbs to a large bowl. Stir in the 6 tablespoons of melted butter and use a fork to mix. When the butter is distributed, transfer the mixture to a 9 x 13-inch baking dish. Press the crumbs into the bottom of the pan and place the pan in the refrigerator while you work on the other layers.
Filling #1 – Mix the cream cheese with a mixer until light and fluffy. Add 2 Tablespoons of milk and sugar and mix well. Stir in 1 and 1/4 cups Cool Whip.
Filling #2 – In another bowl, combine chocolate instant pudding with 3 and 1/4 cups cold milk. Whisk for several minutes until the pudding starts to thicken.
Grab your pan with the oreo crust you made and spread all of the cream cheese mixture over the crust. Once you have that layer down, spread the chocolate pudding over the cream cheese layer. Allow the dessert to rest for about 5 minutes so that the pudding can firm up further. (I usually put it in the refrigerator while I start cleaning up my mess)
Finish off the dessert by spreading the remaining Cool Whip over the top. Sprinkle mini chocolate chips evenly over the entire thing. Place in the freezer for 1 hour if you’re impatient like me, or the refrigerator for 4 hours before serving.
THEN eat until you’re in a chocolate induced coma.
Okay, that last bit wasn’t in the original recipe but it should be. Just remember, calories don’t count on special occasions and Holidays so enjoy! *cough*
