Chocolate Lasagna

I love chocolate and I love lasagna so I figured I couldn't go wrong with this recipe!  I have to give credit to the Center Cut Cook for the recipe.  I've also seen this floating around Facebook lately, too.  Whoever invented this is just a genius!  It's so easy to make.  It's my turn to take dessert to my book club next month and I'm thinking this is just the dessert for a summer girl's night out!

Chocolate Lasagna

INGREDIENTS
1 package regular Oreo cookies (Not Double Stuff) – about 36 cookies
6 Tablespoon butter, melted
1- 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 Tablespoons cold milk
1- 12 ounce tub Cool Whip, divided
2 – 3.9 ounce packages Chocolate Instant Pudding.
3 1/4 cups cold milk
1 and 1/2 cups mini chocolate chips
DIRECTIONS
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.

I followed the directions exactly except for I used my food processor to chop up the Oreos.  It so easy that it really doesn't need any further explanation.  But you should see some pictures!


The first piece I took out of the pan looks more like a blob, but I assure you, it tastes just as delicious!  You can't really see the actual layers though.  


Here you can see the layers on the outside of the dish.  Looks like chocolate lasagna to me! 


I can't stress how easy this was and how delicious.  It only lasted a couple of days in this house!   The best part is that it really isn't too rich so you can eat a large piece and not feel like it's too much! :)  I think this is one of my new favorite desserts!
