Are you ready for a decadent holiday dessert? Trust me, we’ve got you covered with this Christmas Dessert Lasagna. Before I get into the recipe too far, let’s just take a second to appreciate the beauty of this festive treat, shall we? With a layer of red, white, and green, topped with whipped cream, candy cane pieces, and Andes Mints, surely this is any Christmas-lover’s dream come true!

Get ready to loosen your belt and indulge with this rich dessert. If you’re in the mood for sweets (and really, who isn’t?) then this is the recipe for you!

This dessert lasagna starts out with a layer of cookie dough. The recipe is made easier by using a package of sugar cookie mix. Mix everything according to the package direction, and then fold in crushed peppermints.

Add red food coloring to the dough until you get the desired shade of red. Press the dough into the bottom of a 9×13 baking dish and bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Cool completely before moving on to the next layer.

Next up, we have the cream cheese layer. In a large bowl, mix cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and peppermint extract. Add heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Spread over the cooled cookie layer and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.

After the 30 minutes are up, it’s time to move on to the green pudding layer. Whisk 2 white chocolate instant pudding mixes with cold milk until combined. Stir in melted white chocolate chips, and then add green food coloring a little at a time until you get the desired shade. Spread the pudding over the cream cheese layer and set in the fridge for another 10 minutes or so.

Top with cool whip, crushed peppermints, and crushed Andes Mints!
