One of Summer’s Best New Desserts: No-Bake, Layered AND Chocolate!

When it comes to get-togethers I host, dessert is usually an afterthought. Because I’m more of a savory cook than a talented baker, I tend to put all my energy into the main course rather than the sweet ending. However, I’ve finally found a dessert that is both incredibly simple and always delicious: No-Bake Chocolate Layer Dessert. Layers of crumbled chocolate cookies, creamy whipped topping and chocolate pudding stack up to the most popular dish at the potluck! Be warned: It vanishes magically—it’s on the table one minute and gone the next. You will love this super-easy, no-bake summer treat!

This recipe has become my summertime go-to, and it’s always a hit with those lucky enough to snag a scoop. It’s creamy and chocolatey, yet airy with a little crunch. Absolutely melt-in-your-mouth amazing, and perfect on a hot day.

To make your own easy chocolate layer dessert, all you need is 30 minutes and 8 ingredients, some of which you might already have in your pantry!

I begin by combining the crushed cookies with melted butter, then patting them gently into a baking dish. Next, I add a layer of cream cheese combined with sugar, milk and whipped topping. A layer of smooth, sweet instant chocolate pudding goes on top of that. Finally, I add a layer of whipped topping for a dreamily creamy presentation.

Once my top layer of whipped topping is nice and smooth, I garnish this dessert with gorgeous fresh raspberries (or any kind of berry), some mini chocolate chips and a few mint leaves. It makes for a perfectly pretty presentation for any occasion!

Before serving, I make sure to let the dessert sit in the refrigerator for four hours, or in the freezer for one hour. It’s important for the layers to firm slightly to avoid a mess when cutting and serving.

I guarantee you and your chocolate-loving guests will flip for this fabulous dessert. Grab your ingredients and try it today!
