How to Make Chocolate Lasagna

  1. Make the Oreo crust – In a food processor, pulse the Oreos until they form fine crumbs. Transfer them to a medium mixing bowl and add the melted butter. Stir to combine, then press the crumbs into a 9×13 baking dish.
  2. Make the cream cheese layer – Using an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the cream cheese and sugar together until they are light and fluffy. Add 2 tablespoons of milk and beat to combine. Fold in the Cool Whip.
  3. Make the pudding – In a large bowl, whisk the pudding mix and the remaining milk until smooth. Put it in the fridge for 10-15 minutes so it will set.
  4. Assemble – Spread a layer of the cream cheese mixture over the Oreo crust. Refrigerate for 10 minutes. Spread a layer of chocolate pudding over the cream cheese. Chill again. Spread the rest of the Cool Whip over the pudding layer and sprinkle with mini chocolate chips. Refrigerate for at least 5 hours before serving.

Is whipped cream and Cool Whip the same?

No, so you can’t use whipped cream as a substitute for Cool Whip in this recipe. Cool Whip is more stable because it has other ingredients added to the cream.
