You might have heard of dessert pizza, but what about dessert lasagna? If you've ever had an icebox cake, then the idea should be pretty easy to understand. Last year dessert lasagna became popular with the epic Nutellasagna, a totally over-the-top dessert that includes Nutella, hazelnuts, marshmallow, and buttery noodles. Yes, actual noodles. Since then, the idea has kind of exploded.
While most other dessert lasagnas I've seen on the internet don't actually include noodles, the general structure is the same. There's a creamy layer (usually pudding or whipped cream), some kind of cookie layer (like graham crackers or Oreos), and then some fruit, chocolate, or even candy bars. Most of the recipes you find online use store-bought ingredients like pudding, cake mix, and cool whip, but those things are pretty easy to make at home if you have the time.
Here are 14 recipes you should get comfortable with if you're ready to tackle a dessert lasagna of your own. It's the perfect sweet treat to end a dinner party.
1. Peanut Butter Cookie Lasagna from Hugs & Cookies xoxo
The internet was pretty obsessed with this dessert lasagna last week. This recipe only requires five ingredients (unless you'd rather make the pudding by scratch). There's a ton of peanut butter in this thing.
2. Chocolate Lasagna from The Kitchen Snob
Having a bunch of people over for dinner? This dessert lasagna will satisfy all the chocolate lovers. There's chocolate pudding, Oreos, and chocolate chips.
3. Frozen Snicker's Peanut Butter Lasagna from Jennifer Thurston
This dessert lasagna is proof that buying extra Halloween candy is always a great idea. This recipe goes all out with the Snickers theme by implementing layers of caramel, peanut butter pudding, and peanuts.
4. Butterfinger Chocolate and Peanut Butter Lush from Spicy Southern Kitchen
Chocolate pudding, peanut butter, and Butterfinger candies come together in this sweet after-dinner treat.
All dessert "lasagnas" are essentially layer cakes. This one from Kitchn uses heavy cream, strawberries, and graham crackers. The whole thing is put in the fridge for a few hours so the graham crackers get soft and delicious.
6. Milk and Cookies Lasagna from Hugs & Cookies xoxo
You only need four ingredients for this delicious lasagna, and two of those ingredients are milk and cookies. This dessert is so easy to make if you have the right baking dish.
7. Red Velvet Dessert Lasagna from The Cookie Rookie
For all you red velvet fans out there, this lasagna is for you. The red layer is made out of chocolate pudding and red food coloring. I love that the whole thing is topped with chocolate chips. Classy, kinda?
8. No-Bake Birthday Cake Lasagna from Wine and Glue
The texture of this dessert lasagna is super fascinating. Unlike the other recipes in this roundup, this lasagna actually includes cake mix as part of the pudding layer. It also includes a crunchy Belgian waffle crisp layer, too.
9. No-Bake Chocolate Strawberry Cheesecake Lasagna from 3 Yummy Tummies
Oreos, chocolate, and strawberries are a welcome combination in this no-bake lasagna.
Can't get to a campfire? Make this s'mores lasagna. Do it for the marshmallow creme layer.
11. Mint Oreo Layered Dessert from Homemade Interest
I love the idea of using different flavored Oreos for these dessert lasagnas. Can you imagine one that used Swedish Fish Oreos?
12. No-Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Lasagna from Creole Contessa
There are so many pumpkin-flavored things going on with this cake I don't even know where to begin.
13. Apple Pie Lasagna from Beyond Frosting
This delicious-sounding cake is made up of graham crackers, brown sugar cream cheese, whipped cream, and apple pie filling.
This dessert lasagna is probably the most unique of the bunch. I love the tropical twist with the mango and coconut layers.
