This simple layered chocolate dessert comes together quickly and will disappear even faster. A chocolate cookie crust is followed by a layer of cream cheese icing and chocolate pudding and then topped with whipped cream and chocolate chips for a dessert that looks impressive without all the hassle.

How to Make It

Step 1

Add 36 chocolate cookies to a large zip-top plastic bag and crush, using a rolling pin or meat mallet, until fine crumbs form.

Step 2

Transfer crumbs to a large bowl. Stir in melted butter. Transfer the mixture to a 9x13 baking dish. Press crumbs into the bottom of pan. Place in refrigerator to chill while working on other layers.

Step 3

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

Step 4

In a bowl, combine chocolate instant pudding with 3 1/4 cups cold milk. Whisk for several minutes until pudding begings to thicken. Spread mixture over previous layer. Allow the dessert to rest for 5 minutes so the pudding can firm up further.

Step 5

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