If you are looking for a fun, unique, and no-bake dessert, you have come to the right place. 

There is a lot of chilling involved since you have to set every layer. I promise the end result is worth all of the effort. When you cut into this luscious dessert, you will see each and every layer.

Andes mints make the perfect garnish. They are chocolate and mint, and they jazz up the final layer of the whipped topping while connecting all the yummy flavors.

We all love the simplicity of no bake desserts, and dessert lasagna takes those to the next level, without all the fuss. 

This Pumpkin Cream Cheese Layered Dessert is a sister to the Andes Mint Dessert Lasagna, and oh SO good! 

If you aren’t a pumpkin fan, give this Strawberry Pretzel Salad (although it’s really dessert) a try.

Tips for Making this Mint Chocolate Lasagna 

  1. Don’t skimp out on the chilling of each individual layer. Yes, it’s time-consuming. However, the pudding and whipped topping will begin to run together if they aren’t properly set first. Do your best to be patient!
  2. Whipped topping is best here. You can use store-bought or homemade whipped cream here, but it also doesn’t hold up.
  3. Want even more mint flavor? Use mint Oreos instead of the original.
  4. If you have any leftovers, they must be stored in the refrigerator. They should last up to 2 days.
  5. Feel free to line your baking dish with parchment paper. Just be prepared for the wrinkles in the paper to make the dessert less smooth around the edges.
  6. A great tip is using the bottom of a glass to press the Oreos and butter into the bottom of the glass dish. It really packs it together nicely.

Kitchen Essentials:

  • 13×9 glass dish
  • Food processor (this makes the Oreos into the perfect crumbs, but you can also put the cookies into a Ziploc bag and crush them with a rolling pin)
  • Hand or stand mixer
  • Spatula or large spoon
  • Microwave safe bowl
  • 2 large bowls (one for the pudding and one for the cream cheese mixture)

How to Make Mint Chocolate Lasagna 

  1. The melted butter and crushed Oreo cookies come together to make an easy chocolate crust, which is the perfect base for this dessert lasagna. Remember to chill in the refrigerator before starting the other layers.
  2. Cream the cream cheese and sugar together, just so it isn’t grainy. Fold in the whipped topping and the food coloring. Chill again, which you will repeat for every layer to keep them distinct.
  3. The next layer is the chocolate pudding, Mix the instant pudding with the milk and let it set in the fridge before you spread it over the second layer.
  4. Finally, the remaining whipped topping and crushed Andes mints on top complete this dessert. Be sure to refrigerate until firm before serving!
