August: Week 2

This past week we went to a neighbor’s house for dinner and I was asked to bring a dessert. YES, my favorite part of every meal (wait, you’re not supposed to have dessert after breakfast? Oh *sips chocolate smoothie*).  Off to Pinterest I went to find something that no doubt everyone would like. Chocolate of course- none of these “fruit” desserts. That’s like having fake boobs in a small bikini top.

Anywho, I found this recipe for chocolate lasagna. That’s right, layers of chocolate. Perfect-o.

It was pretty easy to make, and it didn’t take long but I do have one suggestion- I would leave it in the freezer until you’re ready to serve (minimum of one hour). Putting it in the fridge doesn’t let it harder enough so it turns out to be soup-y when you serve it. When you are ready to serve, let it sit out for maybe 15 minutes and then cut it up into pieces. Remember: lots of little pieces = less calories. Duh.

Here’s the tricky part- underneath the white is a layer of chocolate pudding. I’d suggest putting the dessert into the freezer for about 20 minutes to let the pudding harden, otherwise you get a swirly mix like above.

While that is hardening, let the Cool Whip sit out and soften because otherwise its really hard to spread evenly.
