Secondly, the butter into a heat-safe dish and melt in the microwave in 10-second intervals.

Thirdly, add the melted butter into the crumbs and combine, leaving about two tablespoons of the crumbs to add on top later.

Next, the crumbs into the prepared baking dish and pressed down gently to form a crust, then place into the freezer.

Filling:

To start, open all of your mints and put them on a piece of parchment paper, and begin cutting them into small pieces.

First, take the baking dish out of the freezer and top with the pieces of mint, then, returned back to the freezer.

Secondly, in the bowl of a standing mixer, add in the cream cheese and beat until smooth and creamy.

What is Chocolate Lasagna?

Chocolate Lasagna is exactly as it sounds. It is a dessert in the form of a lasagna, but without the savory ingredients, like cheese and sauce. It is layers of chocolate, cool whip, mint, and pudding.

Can I make this ahead of time?

Yes, you can make this ahead of time. You will need to make each of your layers separately and place them into an airtight container. Store the ingredients in the fridge until you are ready.
