We use the term ‘lasagna’ loosely here… This sweet, crunchy, creamy concoction is really only a lasagna in the fact that it has layers. You won’t find any noodles here! But you will find a singularly delicious dessert that is the perfect treat to feed a crowd. And it’s easy to boot.
The crunchy base is formed by blitzing some pretzels, pecans, sugar, and melted butter together in a food processor. A blend of cream cheese, sweetened condensed milk, and lemon juice is layered on top of that, and the whole thing is finished off with a layer of orange jello and sweet mandarin oranges.
The combination of crunchy, salty pretzels against the creamy cheesecake layer and the bite of the oranges in jello on top is really a showstopper. Seriously. It’s got a trio of different flavors and a trio of different textures and it all works together so well. While it does need to hang out in the fridge overnight, it’s quick as can be to put together and we have yet to find a person who hasn’t loved this.
