Red Velvet Dessert Lasagna Is Layer upon Layer of Decadence

Red velvet cake...donuts...lasagna? Yes, it's here and you will not regret trying out this Red Velvet Dessert Lasagna. Layer upon layer of decadent fillings (like a lasagna!) and no shortage of chocolate, this treat is one to go down in the books!

I love this one chilled out of the fridge, but you could also serve it frozen if you prefer. This dessert lasagna is really great through fall and into the holidays with that deep red color through the middle layer. Serve this up and people will be begging for seconds!
