No-Bake Patriotic Dessert Lasagna

Whether your’re celebrating our Nation’s independence or just looking for a delicious summer dessert, you’ll want to make this no-bake red velvet dessert lasagna.

No-Bake Patriotic Dessert Lasagna 1

This flag is nearly anatomically correct with 13 strips representing the original 13 colonies and nearly the correct number of blueberries for the 50 states – there’s only 49. But if you can overlook that minor glitch, this easy no-bake dessert should appear at several events this summer with COPA American currently underway (USA plays Argentina tomorrow), July 4th around the corner, and the Olympics in August. Or make it on any random day and just chuck the berries on top.

But for those of you looking to celebrate our nation, as an added bonus there are red velvet Oreos inside, continuing the red and white strips theme. Heck yea red velvet Oreos! And layered between them is a cheesecake-like filling because nothing pairs better with red velvet than cream cheese.

I actually served this yesterday when we had friends over to cookout and then watch the basketball final game #7 which ended with one of my Cleveland-born friends running out of my house screaming with excitement. It was absolutely hilarious and you better believe we captured it on video.

    There’s no way I’ll ever be making this cake, but I love what you wrote in this post. Anatomically correct flag? 🙂 And did you happen to see the Chile/Mexico game? I’m looking for Chile to beat Argentina in the finals. My stepson said that Chile played well enough in that game with Mexico, that they could win the world cup. I had no idea you were a soccer fan. I’ve learned to enjoy the game since I’m married to a soccer referee.

    I see you mention chocolate chips but I don’t see it as a part of the ingredients. How much chocolate chips do we need for the recipe.

    Thanks

      Oops that’s a typo as I adapted this from one of my recipes that did use chocolate chips. No chocolate needed! I fixed the recipe to reflect this.

  • […] 10. No-Bake Patriotic Dessert Lasagna – It should come as no surprise that the top ten includes one of my latest no-bake dessert lasagnas. Ever since discovering the original (to me) peanut butter and chocolate version I’ve been on a mission to create every other flavor under the sun (and maybe even by moonlight). I actually made two others this year including s’smores (I did a single serving in the past) and dark chocolate pistachio (aka monster mash). […]
