Milk & Cookies Lasagna

It’s my favorite day of the month! I hopped over to Hugs & Cookies XOXO and selected an easy, outrageously delicious dessert to share with you all. Have you heard of dessert lasagnas?

Danielle has loads of them on her blog, including S’mores Cookie Lasagna, a No-Bake Cherry Cheesecake Cookie Lasagna, and this Milk and Cookies Lasagna. With the hubby being a Chips Ahoy fan, I knew this Milk & Cookies Lasagna would be the first to add to my repertoire!

Easy Peasy No-Bake Dessert!

This is the perfect warm-weather dessert. Absolutely NO baking involved. Just layer store-bought chocolate chip cookies lightly dipped in milk and Cool Whip. Or if you’re like me, you’ll take it to the next level with a Cool Whip substitute made of whipped cream, cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla.

Let me tell you, this is a must make. But if you’re in a hurry, no worries. A tub of Cool Whip is a speedy alternative. I saved a few cookies to break apart and sprinkle over the top of the dessert plus a drizzle of premium hot fudge sauce for an enticing presentation!

How to Make Stabilized Whipped Cream or a Cool Whip Substitute

My friend, Lynne, at 365 Days of Baking, has a terrific recipe for a Cool Whip Substitute. Made with cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla, and cream, you avoid the abundance of artificial ingredients in Cool Whip. If you are a fan of the whipped topping in a tub, go ahead and use it. This dessert lasagna recipe is super simple either way.

Prep Time 20 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Yield 9 servings


Homemade Cool Whip:

  • 4 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup heavy cream

For lasagna:

  • 1 23-ounce package Chips Ahoy Cookies
  • 3/4 cup milk

  1. Make the Cool Whip substitute by beating the cream cheese with the powdered sugar and vanilla until soft and fluffy.
  2. In another bowl, beat the heavy cream just until soft peaks form. They need not be stiff. Add the cream cheese and beat together until stiff. Use immediately to make the lasagna or store covered in the refrigerator.
  3. One at a time, quickly dip a cookie into the milk, then layer the bottom of a glass 8 x 8-inch pan with cookies.
  4. Spread half the Cool Whip over cookies.
  5. Repeat by dipping cookies, layering over Cook Whip and topping the second layer of cookies with the rest of the Cool Whip.
  6. Sprinkle with broken cookie pieces, then sprinkle chocolate chips over the top, if desired.
  7. Refrigerate at least 6 hours. Drizzle with fudge sauce to serve.

  1. I haven’t had cool whip for years! Or chips ahoy cookies! I’m totally surprised they still make cool whip (so full of chemicals). I’m really glad you made your own substitute (which sounds and tastes so much better). Making a sweet ‘lasagna’ is very creative, it also sounds and looks like it could be a tiramisu!
    I made your twice baked, baked potato last night (except with gruyère cheese), it was so good! JT and I just shared one potato!
