Chocolate Lasagna Made With Chocolate Graham Crackers

While looking for a perfect dessert to go with A Garfield The Cat Party, a Chocolate Lasagna was the first thing that came to mind. This Chocolate Lasagna is made with Chocolate Graham Crackers is simple and only requires 20 minutes of prep time.

When we heard that the Cincinnati Children’s Theatre was offering Garfield The Cat’s digital streamings, we knew that it was time to create a theatre experience at home. Passes are available for purchase so that you can create this fun theatre night in your own home. We purchased our digital passes, made an Italian lasagna, then started to look for the perfect dessert. Then we decided to craft our own version of this popular dessert.

Each layer is heavenly in itself but put it all together for a match made in heaven.

I recommend making it in the evening before serving to allow plenty of time in the fridge. Be sure to add this to your Winter Bucket List!

Ingredients For A Chocolate Lasagna

Storing The Chocolate Lasagna With Chocolate Graham Crackers

We recommend making your chocolate lasagna in a 9″-x-13” baking dish, preferably with a lid. After generously serving 12-14 people any leftovers can be stored in the fridge. This dessert will keep for 2-3 days in the fridge covered. No lid? Use foil or plastic wrap.

To make the ganache pop add in 2 tbsp of brewed coffee or a 1 tsp of instant coffee. Don’t worry, it won’t taste like coffee.
