No bake layered desserts, known as lasagna or lush, are perfect for holidays. You may have already tried my Hot Chocolate Lasagna or Christmas Lasagna. They are so simple and easy to make. You can make them ahead and take to a party to feed a crowd.
Baileys Chocolate Lasagna is completely no-bake, starting with Oreo crust, over chocolate pudding spiked with Irish cream liqueur, all the way up to Baileys cheesecake layer and whipped cream topping.
I create this boozy lasagna dessert, especially for the holidays. Christmas and New Year’s Eve are the perfect time to make a boozy dessert. To make this dessert festive looking, I added crushed candies and mini candy canes for decoration. Boozy, chocolatey and minty, this Baileys Chocolate Lasagna will be a hit at holiday gatherings.
But if you would like to stick to just the chocolate and baileys combo and skip the mint flavor use chocolate shavings for decoration instead of peppermint candies.
If you miss out this recipe for upcoming holidays, Christmas and New Year, make sure you add it to the St. Patrick’s menu.
