This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Little Debbie®. As always, all opinions are my own. I love to bake, but I don’t always have the time to do so. Can you relate? Sometimes preparing an elaborate dessert for guests seems like too much work. It is times like these when I enjoy making no bake desserts. This Chocolate No Bake Cake Recipe is perfect to make when you are short on time or during those hot summer months when you don’t want to turn on the oven. As an added bonus, it uses one of my favorite childhood baked goods in a whole new way.
As a kid, one of my favorite after-school snacks were Little Debbie® Swiss Rolls. I would come home from school and pour myself an ice cold glass of milk and eat a Little Debbie® Swiss Roll while I talked to my mom about my day. I relive this sweet memory whenever I enjoy Little Debbie® products.
Since Little Debbie® is “The Taste You Never Outgrow,” I have passed this tradition on to my kids and now we enjoy Little Debbie® Swiss Rolls together.
I love the versatility of Little Debbie® Swiss Rolls. You can enjoy them on their own or use them to make an easy no bake dessert. If you don’t consider yourself much of a cook or baker than you will love this easy recipe.
I used an 8×8 glass baking dish and was able to get nine square slices of cake from it. Place 10 Little Debbie® Swiss Rolls in the bottom of the glass baking dish. You’ll want to place these as close to each other as possible, as they will be forming the bottom of your cake.
Next, you will be adding a layer of chocolate pudding. I simply bought a box of instant pudding and whipped it up with some milk in a few minutes. Spread the pudding evenly over the Little Debbie® Swiss Rolls.
Top the pudding with a some thawed whipped topping. Be gentle with this step so you don’t get pudding in the whipped topping layer. I used a silicone spatula to spread the whipped topping.
As a finishing touch, add some chopped walnuts and chocolate chips to the top.
The hardest part of this no bake cake recipe is the 30 minutes you will need to wait while it sets in the refrigerator.
This no bake cake recipe will serve 9 square slices. I cut mine with a knife and removed it from the pan using a spatula.
I love the layers of chocolate and cream with the added crunch of nuts and chocolate chips.
My kids enjoyed trying Little Debbie® Swiss Rolls in a whole new way. They were very interested to know what was under the whipped topping, and when they bit into the cake they recognized the delicious flavor of Little Debbie® Swiss Rolls. Whether you are serving this no bake cake recipe to family or friends, enjoy creating your own sweet memories!
