CHOCOLATE LASAGNA

1       pkg. Regular Oreo Cookies (not Double Stuff, about 36 cookies)

6       Tbsp. Butter (melted)

1       (8 oz.) pkg. Cream Cheese  (softened)

1/4    Cup Granulated Sugar

2       Tbsp. Cold Milk

1       (12 oz.) Tub Cool Whip (divided)

2       (3.9 oz.) pkgs. Chocolate Instant Pudding

3 1/4 Cups Cold Milk

1 1/2 Cups Mini Chocolate Chips

Begin by crushing 36 Oreo cookies. Use a food processor for this or place them in a large ziplock bag and crush them with a rolling pin, until the Oreos have turned into fine crumbs.

Transfer the Oreo crumbs to a large bowl. Stir in 6 tablespoons of melted butter and use a fork to incorporate the butter into the cookie crumbs. When the butter is distributed, transfer the mixture to a 9 x 13 inch baking dish. Press the crumbs into the bottom of the pan. Place the pan in the refrigerator while you work on the additional layers.

Mix the cream cheese with a mixer until light and fluffy. Add in 2 Tablespoons of milk, and sugar, and mix well. Stir in 1 1/4 cups Cool Whip. Spread this mixture over the crust.

In a bowl, combine chocolate instant pudding with 3 1/4 cups cold milk. Whisk for several minutes until the pudding starts to thicken. Use a spatula to spread the mixture over the previous cream cheese layer. Allow the dessert to rest for about 5 minutes so that the pudding can firm up further.

Spread the remaining Cool Whip over the top. Sprinkle mini chocolate chips evenly over the top. Place in the freezer for 1 hour, or the refrigerator for 4 hours before serving.
