Chocolate Lasagna

We’ve teamed up with our friends from Kroger to bring you a little taste of Italy straight to your home. I took a traditional favorite and added a sweet-tooth spin to make this decadent chocolate lasagna. Not only does it look fantastic, but it’ll have your guests raving as well. Did I mention it is so simple to make? Because it really is!

First, you’ll need one 8×8″ prepared cake. I found this Ghirardelli Double Chocolate PREMIUM Cake Mix at the Ralph’s in Downtown Los Angeles, and I knew it would be the perfect chocolate layer in my “lasagna.” It was smaller in size (12.75 oz), but it was exactly what I needed. After it is baked, dump it onto a serving plate or platter, and using a long serrated knife, cut off the top if it is uneven (you’ll want to even layers so your lasagna isn’t lopsided). Then using the same knife, cut your cake into two layers, setting one aside for later.

In a bowl, mix together cream cheese, milk, powdered sugar, and cool whip. Spread half the mixture on top of the chocolate layer.
