There are of course many variations of this dessert- all of them amazing.

The Butterfingers are really easy to crush while they are still in the wrapper. Just use a rolling pin to tap them a few times.

  1. Made it for my husband and I, it was so deliciously rich and sweet. A little goes a long way, but now we have so much left, how long will this last in the fridge?

  2. I can’t believe how WONDERFUL this looks!!! Want these butterfingers chocolate & peanut butter thingies right now 🙂 Thanks for sharing.

  3. I made this last night, and the pudding didn’t set up. Could it be because I used skim milk instead of whole? I even put it in the freezer this after for about 3 hours and it’s still a runny sauce, but the cool whip froze back nicely. Just curious. Even with it being saucy it tastes like Butterfingers ice cream with Oreo cookies and chocolate sauce, so taste-wise it’s delicious. Just trying to figure out where I went wrong on the pudding part.


  4. I signed up for your newsletter ,was supposed to get a email message to confirm my email It was the last step. I never received it Would you be so kind to respond .Thank you

  5. Making a trial run tonight and if it’s as amazing as it looks going to bring it to Thanksgiving probably by freezing it the night before. So excited, the ingredients weren’t very expensive either!

  6. This recipe is amazing. Really, really good. I’m not crazy about cream cheese mixed with chocolate so I used just regular butter instead of the cream cheese and it turned out great.
    Thanks for the recipe?

  7. It’s NOT a Lasagna…!!! By definition a ‘Lasagna’ should be at least 7 Layers high; traditionally of noodles, bolognese/meat sauce, a béchamel sauce and cheese…

    Thus, forget the ‘noodle’ aspect, to be a “Dessert Lasagna” it should be at least 7 Layers high… “Trifles” can have a number of layers, it more variable not specific per se…

    Evan calling it a “Dessert Lasagna” I would still expect there would be ‘Noodles’ in it..?? Sweet lasagna-style noodles made w/ chocolate, sugar-cinnimon, peanut butter, pumpkin-spiced, etc., +Plus various jams, jellies and marinades noodles… Then incorporate other various layers of sweet elements such as crumbled cookies, thin layers of various cakes, m&m’s, candies, nuts, etc…

    SOooo, use your ‘noodle’ & imagination bakers & confectioners..!! Hopefully I have sparked, inspired and created a “New” type of dessert revelation… It would be nice if you remember who planted this sweet seed of dessert innovation…

    BTW: When you think of a “Dessert Pizza” it looks like a pizza, right… The article on the The Kitch’N blog titled, “14 Delicious Dessert Lasagnas You Need to Know About”

  8. I have found that with alot of the recipes that call for incorporating cool whip, be sure to use birdseye coolwhip. Store Brands do not hold up very well

  9. I did freeze this, took it to the party in a cooler w/no ice. It thawed in about 4hrs. Looked just as good as when I first made it!!! And it was delicious!

  10. Made this yesterday. It is absolutely delicious! Turned out perfect. My husband isn’t much of a sweet eater and he had a piece of this and loved it! Kids loved it as well – Not a surprise there! I loved it too! Recipe box keeper especially for a potluck when you need to bring a dessert! Thanks for the recipe 🙂

  11. Good recipe. However I found when i put it in the fridge after making it the cool whip melted. Made it a messy dessert.

      1. I use 1 cup milk and 1 cup of heavy cream with the pudding , it works out great…..it cuts nice plus its not soupy

  12. Seriously, this recipe is amazing. I would not change a thing. Thinking about trying this as a peanut butter cup combo instead of the butterfingers for a change. Delicious!!

  13. I tried this recipe today. The result was quite good. I live in Europe and we do not have Butterfingers here. So I used Mars instead. And I used all the other ingredients in the recipe accordingly. The only problem was that it became very sweet. I think adding confectioners sugar is unnecessary because most of the ingredients are already sweet. But maybe the products here are different than the U.S. so my lush became very sweet. It may be OK for some people though. Other than this it is very delicious. I prepared it for my fiancee for his birthday and he loved it. Thank you Christin!

    1. I would guess it’s because Europeans aren’t accustomed to the very sweet desserts that Americans like! I love European desserts, but they are not nearly as sweet as American desserts!

  14. My husband is going to pass out when I present him this. I only hope I can do it justice, it is so perfect on your website! Nothing of mine every turns out like the website. Thank you!!!
