Recipes That Rock | Milk and Cookies Lasagna

Do you love Chips Ahoy? How about Cool Whip? If you answered no to those questions, you're either my brother-in-law who doesn't like sweets (I wish I had that problem), super health-conscious (I wish I had the willpower), or just weird. 

Truth time: when I find myself in my house with Chips Ahoy and Cool Whip (which is rare), I dip those cookies in the Cool Whip until I have a stomach ache. If there's no Cool Whip, I just dip 'em in milk. It's just so darn good. So you can imagine my excitement when I came across this recipe for Milk and Cookies Lasagna on Pinterest. I had 2 8oz. tubs of Cool Whip left over from our Friendsgiving, and I wanted to use them up somehow. So I searched "dessert" and "cool whip" on Pinterest and this little ditty popped up. This is so super easy to make (no baking required!); the worst part is waiting for it to chill for 6 hours before you can eat it! I made this last weekend for our family dinner with Victor's family, and it was well-received!

Milk and Cookies Lasagna

  • 2 packages Chips Ahoy cookies
  • 2 containers Cool Whip (I had 2 8oz. ones, and just barely needed to bust into the second one)
  • Hot fudge sauce (I used Hershey's chocolate syrup)
  • 1 1/2 cups milk for dipping

  1. Find an 11x7 glass baking dish (this might also look lovely in a trifle dish, but you would probably need more cookies and Cool Whip to fill it). 
  2. Create a layer of cookies by dipping each cookie into the milk and lining them in the bottom of the dish. You only need to dip for a second. 
  3. Spread on a layer of Cool Whip. 
  4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 until you reach the top of the dish. I did 3 layers of each.
  5. Top the last layer of Cool Whip with crumbled cookies and chocolate syrup. 
  6. Refrigerate at least 6 hours before serving.

The cookies get pretty soggy in this finished product (duh, you dunk them in milk first!), but the chocolate chips still give it a good crunch, if you're into textures. I think this might be even better with some layers of sliced strawberries or other fruit, too!
