Lasagna? For dessert? We promise – no noodles involved! Just layers of chocolate and creamy, dreamy goodness.
We know you love lasagna. And now we'll make sure you love it for dessert!
Get ready for decadence and delight – i.e., Chocolate Lasagna. It's coming to your kitchen. Stat.
Start it all out with a chocolatey, butter crust. We’re gonna begin with a box of Betty Crocker Chocolate Cake mix. The Triple Fudge flavor works like a charm.
Just combine a stick of butter with the mix and pop it into the oven for about 12 minutes. It makes this soft, delicious crust that’s denser than cake but perfect for being the bottom of this light, creamy chocolate wonder.
Once the chocolate cake layer is baked, you’ll top with a cream cheese and whipped cream mixture. In keeping with the original Chocolate Lasagna inspiration, almond extract is added.
If you don’t like almond flavoring, you can totally leave it out, but if you love almond flavor – sweet Hannah! Be ready to be in heaven.
Now for a frosting layer. It starts with frosting. Gets pimped with pudding.
And mixes with a nice stir-in of Chocolate Toast Crunch cereal. The cereal thickens this layer up a bit and adds some substance to the middle of the cake. A nice treat when you’re forking your face into it and discover layer after layer of things you wanna motorboat forever.
The chocolate frosting layer gets spread over the cream cheese layer. And you’ve nearly arrived at dessert perfection.
Now whipped cream goes on top.
And you’re gonna need that box of Chocolate Toast Crunch again.
This time for sprinkling. Just let the artist in you sprinkle to your hearts content. All over the whipped cream. The more the crunchier. It’s a merry day.
Add some chocolate chunks (or mini chocolate chips). Then, drizzle baby. Hot fudge sauce in the hizzy, dolls. Just drizzle it until you can’t drizzle it anymore.
And you’re done! Doesn't that look like the best pan of lasagna ever?!
The finished can be served right away, but works best if it’s had some time to chill in the refrigerator. If chilling in the refrigerator, don’t sprinkle the cereal topping on the whipped cream until right before you’re ready to serve. This will keep the topping crunchy!
And, whenever you’re ready ... slice and serve.
When you’re here, you’re happy. Viva la Chocolate Lasagna!
