CHOCOLATE LASAGNA

CHOCOLATE LASAGNA

Chocolate lovers rejoice! This no-bake Chocolate Lasagna is filled with cream cheese, chocolate pudding, and chocolate chips on top of an Oreo cookie crust!

My aunt had a barbecue over the weekend and I jumped on the chance to test out this chocolate lasagna recipe. Oreos are great for no-bake recipes (see my Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Oreo Bon Bons) and with all the flavors coming out lately, you could really switch up the direction of this no bake dessert. But, gimme all the chocolate.

If you love chocolate then this is the layered dessert for you. It’s full of creamy, dreamy flavors and textures that make your tastebuds happy. Because it’s layered into one pan, it’s the perfect take along for potlucks, parties and holidays. Since there’s no baking involved with this chocolate lasagna, you won’t have to heat up your kitchen making it perfect for warm months as well.

See the fun mini chocolate chips on top? You can even change the feeling of this no bake dream by substituting shaved chocolate for the chocolate chips. Use a vegetable peeler to shave a bar of bittersweet chocolate, creating short or long ribbons to sprinkle on top.

Why bittersweet instead of semi sweet or milk chocolate? You can certainly use whichever chocolate you prefer, but because there’s less sugar in a bittersweet bar, it simply shaves better creating prettier chocolate shavings for this chocolate lasagna. So while chocolate chips are fun for a barbecue or birthday party, you might want to try shaved chocolate for a holiday get together.

OREO MAGIC BARS

OREO MAGIC BARS

Oreo Magic Bars – Seven simple layers of Oreo chocolate bliss starting with an Oreo crust, three different types of chocolate chips, coconut and nuts. This is the EASIEST dessert, and always a party favorite.

I have been super conscious about what I’m eating lately, but when the weekend comes (especially Sunday nights) I’m usually in the mood for a sugar fix. Something completely delicious to satisfy my cravings. And, if I can include Oreo cookies somehow then I’m making my husband and myself very, very happy! Some of my favorite Oreo treats include:

  • Oreo Cheesecake Bites
  • Mint Oreo Layer Dessert
  • Oreo Cupcakes
  • Chocolate Cake with Oreo Cream Filling

These Oreo Magic Bars are just that–magical! If you’ve ever had a “hello dolly bar” they are basically the same thing, but instead of a graham cracker crust you use an Oreo crust.

My husband is the one who got me hooked onto these little beauties while ago, and he’s a little bit obsessed with them. There’s no eggs or flour, just seven layers of cookie, chocolate, coconut bliss.

GOOEY OREO COOKIE BARS

GOOEY OREO COOKIE BARS

EWWWW, NO! You all have really dirty minds. I mean, I lived through 50 shades of…painting gray! I had no idea that gray was such a hard color to pick. I thought you mixed black and white and voila – gray. That’s totally not so.

(According to the lady at Sherwin-Williams – gray is not made from black and white. ALL gray has at least some color in it. Okaaaayyyyy.)We went through about 7 shades and 4 trips to the pain store in one day. And by “we” I mean “Mel.” It’s a good thing he loves me a lot.

Getting ready for this kitchen remodel is driving me insane. We had to pick a paint color that would match the gray-brown/teal/green curtains, the greenish glass tile, and the marble-like quartz. And that paint color needed to be photograph friendly. (Bloggers – you get me on that right? Nothing screams problems like a colorful wall.) Gray was the obvious choice.

It only took 7 tries to find one I we liked. We painted one wall (so we could hang the new TV, priorities) and sat back to literally watch paint dry. Gray is a weird color; depending on the light I like it more or less. But there is no way I’m looking at more paint.

I’ve moved on to lighting. Now that is a hard choice. That’s a whole other post in itself. In the meantime I’m self-medicating with Gooey Oreo Cookie Bars. Will you join me?

OREO STUFFED CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

OREO STUFFED CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

These Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies are double stuffed Oreo cookies sandwiched in between two chocolate chip cookies. The BEST cookies ever!

My pants are tight. Snug as a bug in a rug, people. And do my friends bring me carrot sticks or offer to run with me? Oh no. Instead, they call my attention to cookie recipes involving Oreos stuffed inside two chocolate chip cookies.

I’m not one to place blame or name drop *cough* Rachel *cough*, since many of my friends do this. But y’all are killing me. You know I’m weak when it comes to sugary confections.

My advice to you – make these. But make them right before you’re meeting a friend, or sibling, or an entire preschool class. So you can pawn them off on other victims recipients. If not, make them now, while it’s still March and not bathing suit season. Because once that happens, I cannot be held responsible.

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 package Double Stuff Oreo cookies

INSTRUCTIONS :

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, cream butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar together with a mixer until well combined.
  3. Beat in eggs and vanilla.
  4. In medium bowl mix the flour, salt, and baking soda.
  5. Slowly add to wet ingredients along with chocolate chips until just combined.
  6. With a cookie scoop, form balls with the dough.
  7. Place one ball on top of an Oreo cookie, and another ball on the bottom.
  8. Seal edges together by pressing and cupping in hand until a large ball is formed and Oreo cookie is fully enclosed with dough.
  9. Place onto parchment or silpat lined baking sheets and bake cookies for approximately 13 minutes or until golden brown.
  10. Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.

I originally posted this recipe years ago. It’s one of our favorite desserts, so I thought I’d revamp the recipe and get a better picture.

So, here it is in all of its richness. It feeds MANY, so wait to make it until you have a lot of people to share it with. Unless you want to fail at your dietary goals… trust me. 😉
