How do I prepare Hot Chocolate Lasagna
Mix together the crushed Oreo cookies with butter that has been melted and place it in the bottom of a 13 9 inches casserole dish. Then, place it in the refrigerator to set before making the next layer.
To create Hot Chocolate Cheesecake Mousse Layer beat softened cream cheese and butter along with vanilla and powdered sugar. In a separate bowl, beat heavy whipping cream as well as hot chocolate until firm peak forms. Incorporate hot chocolate whipping cream into the cheesecake mix and spread it over the crust. Set in the refrigerator or in the freezer until firm.
For the pudding layer, in a bowl, mix Instant Chocolate Pudding Mix with milk until it begins thickening. Mix in mini marshmallows, then drizzle over the hot chocolate mousse. Once the pudding layer is been set, place the cream over it and put it in the fridge for a few hours , or better, overnight.
Prior to serving, sprinkle two cups of marshmallow minis. Then drizzle them with chocolate melted, Nutella or chocolate topping.

Reserving leftovers in the refrigerator.
Hot Chocolate Lasagna is the most delicious next day, when it is completely firm over night in the refrigerator. It can be prepared a couple of days in advance, but I would suggest making the dessert without marshmallows, as marshmallows that were mixed into the pudding became wet after a couple of days in the refrigerator.
