So, Today I fancied making something I had never made before – and my lovely friend suggested making a chocolate lasagna.
Now, I have never done this before, I took to Google for some inspiration and decided it had to be done. And because it tasted so good I figured I wanted to share the recipe with all of you.
You will need:
- 1.5 packets of Oreo’s (Well, 18 biscuits to be exact)
- Cream Cheese (I used Quark as it doesn’t have a strong flavour and will adapt to whatever flavour you make it)
- half a tsp of vanilla extract
- 50g caster sugar
- 50g single cream (although I think whipping cream would probably have worked better)
- 1 packet of Chocolate Angel Delight.
- 300ml milk
- 30g unsalted butter
- Canned whipped cream
- chocolate sprinkles.
Crush your Oreo’s until they are a fine crumby consistency. I used my food processor for this, but you could easily put them in a food bag and bash with a rolling pin. Whilst the bashing / processing is taking place, melt your butter. Once you have the consistency you require with your crumbs, add to a mixing bowl and pour in your melted butter. Mix well then add to the bottom of your lasagna dish. Place in the fridge to chill.
Mix your cream cheese, single cream, vanilla extract and sugar until it is all combined and creamy. Spread over your biscuit base and chill for 30 minutes.
Add your Angel Delight and milk into a mixing bowl and whisk for about 2 minutes until it becomes a thick, creamy consistency. Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes until set. Then add to your lasagna to form your third layer.
When ready to serve, top with your canned whipped cream, and sprinkle your topping. Either chocolate chips / sprinkles / grated chocolate. Whatever you wish. (picture is not the best)
It takes a bit of preparation time but this seriously is every chocoholics dream pudding. And it’s quite light (in terms of the filling – probably not the calories.)
Although, alternatives have been used in this version to try and not make it a heart attack pudding. I replaced my cream with low fat versions. And my cream cheese with Quark. You could also use sweetener instead of sugar – but my local supermarket were all out.
Anyway – if you have any occasions coming up I would strongly suggest trying this pud. It really is the perfect treat. You could put the cream on before you dish out, but if you want this pud to last longer than 24 hours, spray when serving xXx
