Chocolate Lasagna

This is a yummy dish that a friend posted on Facebook a while back and I just had to try it. It was very easy to make, it took me less than thirty minutes. I love that is a no bake recipe also. I found the recipe on www.food.com My family enjoyed this and requested I make it again. This is a great dish to make for a party.

                                                                Chocolate Lasagna

                                   36 Oreo cookies
                                     6 tablespoons melted butter
                                  1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, soften
                                    1/4 cup sugar
                                     2 tablespoons milk
                                     1 (12 ounce) container Cool whip
                                     2 regular (3.9 ounces) size packs chocolate instant pudding
                                     3 1/4 cups cold milk
                                     1 1/2 cups mini chocolate chips


1  Begin by crushing 36 Oreo cookies. I used my food processor for this, but you could also place them in a large ziplock bag and crush them with a rolling pin. When the Oreos have turned into fine crumbs, you are done.

2  Transfer the Oreo crumbs to a large bowl. Stir in 6 tablespoons melted butter and use a fork to incorporate the butter into the cookie crumbs. 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. Place the pan in the refrigerator while you work on the additional layers.

3 Mix the cream cheese with a mixer until light and fluffy. Add in 2 Tablespoons of milk, and sugar, and mix well. Stir in 1 and 1/4 cups Cool Whip. Spread this mixture over the crust.

4 In a bowl, combine chocolate instant pudding with 3 and 1/4 cups cold milk. Whisk for several minutes until the pudding starts to thicken. Use a spatula to spread the mixture over the previous cream cheese layer. Allow the dessert to rest for about 5 minutes so that the pudding can firm up further.

5 Spread the remaining Cool Whip over the top. Sprinkle mini chocolate chips evenly over the top. Place in the freezer for 1 hour, or the refrigerator for 4 hours before serving.
