Chocolate Lasagna Recipe

Dreamy Chocolate Lasagna has all the dessert flavors you need! An OREO crust, sweet cream cheese filling, and chocolate pudding are all kinds of perfection.

My sister-in-law, Erin, is famously afraid of lasagna noodles.

So when she sent me a picture of Chocolate Lasagna captioned “Finally a lasagna that doesn’t freak me out,” I knew I had to make it immediately.

And not a moment too soon! Right?! From the bottom up, here are the layers in this delicious No-Bake Chocolate Lasagna:

  • OREO Cookie Crust
  • Cream cheese with sugar and whipped topping
  • Chocolate pudding
  • Whipped topping

It’s a lot like my OREO Brownie Trifle without the brownies. Not a bad situation.

Dreamy Chocolate Lasagna has all the dessert flavors you need! An OREO crust, sweet cream cheese filling, and chocolate pudding are all kinds of perfection.

This is definitely a make-ahead dessert, too. That comes in handy whether you are making it for a birthday party, a summer picnic, or Christmas morning.

  • 1 36-count package Oreo cookies
  • 6 tablespoons butter melted
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese room temperature
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 1/2 cups milk plus 2 tablespoons, divided
  • 1 (16 ounce) tub whipped topping divided
  • 2 (3.9 ounce) package instant chocolate pudding
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips for garnish
  • In a food processor, or in a plastic bag with a rolling pin, crush the Oreo cookies into crumbs. In a medium bowl, combine the Oreo crumbs and melted butter. Stir until combined. 
  • Using a spatula, spread the mixture into a 9-inch by 13-inch baking dish. Using a spatula or the bottom of a cup, press the crumb mixture evenly on the bottom of the dish. Set aside.
  • In a standing mixer fitted with the paddle, or with a hand mixer,  mix the cream cheese until fluffy. Add in the 2 tablespoons of milk and the sugar. Mix well.
  • Using a spatula, divide the whipped topping in half. Add half of the whipped topping to the cream cheese mixture. Spread the cream cheese mixture over the cookie crust and refrigerate, about 10 minutes. 
  • Meanwhile, using the standing mixer or the hand mixer, combine the instant pudding mixture and 3 1/4 cups milk on medium speed until the mixture begins to thicken.  
  • Spread the pudding mixture over the cream cheese layer, and refrigerate to set, about 10 minutes. 
  • Once set, gently spread the remaining whipped topping over the pudding layer and garnish with mini chocolate chips.  Cover loosely with cling wrap and chill for 4 hours, or freeze for 1 hour. Cut into slices and serve.

    Cute name, but when my grandmother started making it over 30 years ago, she called it Sin in a Tin. You can make as many varieties as there are flavors of pudding. Just pick your favorite flavor and match it with a crumb that works, ie. chocolate, sugar, graham, gingerbread. It always seems sad to me that there really aren’t any new, original recipes out there anymore to find. But, to your credit, you are printing a perennial favorite in my family that always gets gobbled up quickly.

      Sometimes it feels like every recipe has already been created and there is nothing new to make, I know that can’t possibly be true though. I definitely like to make the classics, and every time I get a comment that talks about someone’s Grandma, it makes my day. That’s what I’m going for. My favorite cake on the blog, in case you haven’t heard of it previously, is Danish Layer Cake. It’s not new, but I think it’s less popular than something like Chocolate Lasagna. It’s a yellow cake with layers of vanilla pudding and raspberry jam, and it’s so wonderful. Take care and thank you for stopping by!

  2. Where there are layers of chocolate there is one happy Karly. This looks SO good, and love how simple it is! Gotta try it soon!

  3. This sounds and looks incredible!5 stars
