Chocolate Covered Strawberry Dessert – Lush, Lasagna, No Bake Recipe….It’s So Good!

I grew up eating a dessert called Four Layer Dessert that my mom made. It was SO good. That, along with my family’s obsession with strawberries, is what inspired this Chocolate Covered Strawberry Dessert. Some may call it Chocolate Strawberry Lush, or Chocolate Strawberry Lasagna, but whatever you call it, this no bake dessert is absolutely incredible.

This dessert takes some planning and refrigeration between layers, but it will be worth it in the end, I promise! I made the Oreo crust first, then the strawberry cream cheese layer and while that set in the fridge, I made the chocolate covered strawberries and let them cool. Then the next layer is the chocolate vanilla pudding combo and finally, whipped topping on top. (I used Tru Whip, but Cool Whip is totally acceptable, too.)

My 9 year old was shocked when I said I just made up this dessert and he deemed it “the best dessert ever.” I tend to agree with him, and strawberries are NOT my favorite fruit. I mean, you can’t go wrong when you add chocolate though, am I right?

Ingredients

Bottom OREO Layer

  • 16 OREOS, crushed finely
  • 3 TBSP melted butter

Third Layer - Strawberry Cream Cheese Layer

  • 8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cups pureed strawberries, drained (about 8-10 berries)
  • 3/4 cup whipped topping (Cool Whip or Tru Whip)

Second Layer - Pudding Layer

  • 1 large package vanilla pudding
  • 1 small package chocolate pudding
  • 3 cups of milk

Top Layer

  • 1 container of whipped topping - Cool Whip or TruWhip
  • chocolate melting wafers for dipping strawberries
  • 8-10 strawberries
  • chocolate shavings, optional

Instructions

  1. Prepare the bottom layer by spreading 16 crushed OREOS in the bottom of a 9x13 or smaller dish or cake pan.
  2. Pour melted butter and mix well.
  3. Press mixture down well to form the crust.
  4. Next, puree 8-10 strawberries and strain the moisture out well.
  5. While strawberry puree is being strained, use a mixer to beat cream cheese and powdered sugar.
  6. Add in puree and whipped topping and mix well.
  7. Spread carefully on top of OREO crust.
  8. Chill dessert in refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  9. When third layer is firm, start with the second layer. (If not firm, you can pop dessert into freezer for awhile.)
  10. Mix vanilla and chocolate pudding mix with milk in a mixer and mix for 2 minutes.
  11. Spread over third strawberry cream cheese layer.
  12. Top with whipped topping and refrigerate for at least an hour.
  13. When ready to serve, top with chocolate covered strawberries and chocolate shavings or finely grated chocolate.
  14. Serve with a metal server, making sure to cut all the layers to the bottom and serve.
  15. Enjoy!

Notes

If layers are not "setting" and thick enough, pop in the freezer for a couple of hours. It's just as delicious!

You can use strawberry preserves or pie filling instead of pureed strawberries, but you'll want to cut back on your sugar by half.
