Chocolate Lasagna Recipe Easy and Delicious

I love chocolate. I love lasagna. And I especially love bringing both together into a dessert like a chocolate lasagna recipe.

It’s the perfect dessert.

Better yet, I love chocolate recipes that are easy. And no bake, can’t get any easier.

Not to mention, who wants to turn on their ovens in the heat of the summer?

Not me.

So, I love no-bake recipes. I especially like no bakes for parties, holidays, or to take to pot-luck or family gatherings.

I also just love the name, chocolate lasagna. It is so fitting for the delicious layers of goodness in this dessert.

Tips for Better Chocolate Lasagna Success

  • Refrigerate for 2+ hours (longer is better) before serving.
  • Spray your pan so the chocolate lasagna doesn’t stick to your pan.
  • Make in advance, but not more than 24 hours. Longer than that will just produce a soggy lasagna. However, you can make it in advance and freeze it.
  • Make cutting a serving neater and easier by freezing for about 30 minutes before slicing.

Spray your pan so none of your chocolate lasagna doesn't stick to your pan.

Make in advance, but not more than 24 hours. Longer than that will just produce a soggy lasagna. However, you can make it in advance and freeze it.

Make cutting a serving neater and easier by freezing for about 30 minutes before slicing.
