Raspberry Chocolate Dessert Lasagna Recipe {Cupid’s Delight}

This raspberry dessert lasagna recipe is perfect for a warm summer night, party dessert, or for a festive Valentine’s Day dessert. I simply call it Cupid’s Delight if I’m serving it for Valentine’s Day.

It pairs fruity raspberry with decadent chocolate all topped with whipped cream, or cool whip in this case. With four delicious layers, it will disappear quickly!

Dessert lasagnas are a favorite of mine. Despite their funny name they are always delicious and come in many different varieties. They are generally no-bake desserts which is great for hot days or when your oven is occupied with other dishes.

This recipe can also be made with strawberries in place of raspberries if you prefer.

Raspberry Dessert Ingredients

  • 20 – 25 oreo cookies
  • 6 tbsp butter
  • 1 package chocolate pudding mix
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1 cup milk + 2 tbsp milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/3 cup raspberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 tub cool whip
  • 8×8 pyrex dish

How to make Cupid’s Delight

Before you get started, be sure you’re cream cheese has been out softening, you won’t be able to work with it if it’s overly firm.

Oreo Crust

1 – To start you’ll need to remove the cream from 20-25 Oreos. The more you use the thicker the crust will be. They don’t have to be scraped completely clean, just remove most of it.

2 – Now you’ll want to break them up. A food processor is the easiest way or you can place them in a ziploc bag and use a meat mallet. You may need to do them in two parts to ensure they get broken down well.

You’ll want them broken into fine crumbs so that they’ll stick together well.

3 – Melt approximately 6 tablespoons of butter and add to your oreo mixture. Mix well.

Add more melted butter if needed. You want the Oreos to stick together without being too wet.

4 – Press the mixture firmly into the bottom of your pan. Place in the freezer for 10 minutes to firm up while you work on the next layer.

Chocolate Pudding layer

5 – Make the chocolate pudding according to the box, cutting the amount of milk used in half. I used one cup of milk in mine but this may vary depending on what you’re using.

If you end up with a cook and serve rather than an instant pudding mix that’s ok. Simply allow it to cool a bit before adding it to your dish.

Optional: If you want to lighten the layer up a bit you can add 1/2 cup of whipped topping (cool whip) to the mixture.

6 – Remove your dish from the freezer and spread the pudding over top of the crust creating an even layer. Return it to the freezer to set for 10-15 minutes.

Raspberry Cheesecake layer

7 – Add your block of cream cheese to a medium bowl. Add the 2 tablespoons of milk, sugar, and vanilla and use a hand mixer to combine.

Note: You’ll need to use a block of cream cheese not the whipped variety. You’ll want the cream cheese to be at room temperature so that it will be mixable.

8 – Next, add the raspberries. I used frozen raspberries but you can, of course, use fresh as well. Mix to combine.

Taste the mixture and add more raspberries if you want a stronger flavor. (It will be more or less sweet and flavorful depending on how ripe your berries are.)

9 – Lastly, fold in the whipped topping which will keep the cream cheese layer light and fluffy.

10 – Gently spread the mixture over top of the pudding layer. Return to the freezer for 10-15 minutes to firm up.

Topping

Finally the easiest layer of all!

11 – Once the cheesecake layer has had time to firm up spread the remaining whipped topping over the top.

Optional: If you’re making this dessert for Valentine’s Day you can top it with some heart sprinkles. It’s just as delicious other times of year, simply omit the sprinkles.

12 – Refrigerate for 4 hours before serving. Keep chilled so that the dish will retain its firmness.

  4. Press the Oreos into the bottom of an 8x8 pyrex dish to create the crust. Place in the freezer for 10 minutes to set.

Chocolate Layer

  1. Make a box of Instant Chocolate pudding cutting the amount of milk in half.
  2. Optional: If you want it a bit lighter fold in about 1/2 cup of whipped topping.
  3. Spread over top of the oreo crust and return to the freezer for 10-15 minutes to set.

Raspberry Cheesecake Layer

  1. Place a softened block of cream cheese into a medium-sized bowl.
  2. Add in 1/2 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons milk, and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Use a mixer to combine well.
  3. Add 1/2 cup of raspberries and use a mixer to break down berries and combine with other ingredients. Fold in 1 cup of whipped cream topping.
  4. Gently spread over top of the chocolate pudding layer. Return to the freezer for 10-15 minutes to firm up.

Whipped Cream Topping

  1. Top with the remaining whipped topping.
  2. Optional: Gently top with fresh berries or sprinkles for a festive look.
  3. Place in the refrigerator for 4 hours before cutting and serving. Keep chilled or layers will start to get too thin.
