I know, it’s another no-bake dessert recipe, but can you blame me? I just can’t get enough!! This one combines some of my favorite things: pudding, no-bake cheesecake, whipped topping, and Little Debbie® Swiss Rolls!

PIN IT NOW to save for later!

Swiss Roll Layered No Bake Dessert - this easy recipe combines Little Debbie snack rolls with layers of pudding and whipped cream for the perfect easy dessert recipe!

That’s right, my friends. I made you a Swiss Roll Layered No Bake Dessert! It has cut up Swiss Rolls for the crust, no-bake cheesecake and chocolate pudding for the filing, and tons of whipped cream.

Pretty much, this dessert is my heaven.

When my friends and I turned 16 we used to go cruising. No, not with a boat; we’d cruise “The Avenue” in our cars. We’d all pile into my boyfriend’s 1960s-era Impala and we’d drive back and forth from San Carlos to San Bruno (in the Bay Area) along El Camino. Every city had it’s stop: the fast food joints, the coffee place, the hot spot, the grocery store. The grocery store was my favorite spot, why? Because that’s where I’d get my Swiss Rolls.

Every Friday and Saturday night my friends and I would pick up snacks and continue cruising. Sometimes we’d head to the beach or just park at the local coffee shop where all the people gathered. Sometimes we’d end up back at a friend’s house and watch movies. But pretty much, for hours every weekend, we cruised…and ate Swiss Rolls.

Man, those were the days, weren’t they? I want to go back to that girl and say, “Enjoy it while it lasts, being a grown up is hard!”

Swiss Roll Layered No Bake Dessert Recipe

So, in my quest to bring you the next best lush dessert recipe, I decided to revise my love of these little cakes. After all, it’s the taste you never outgrow, right? When I opened the package and took a bite I wondered where these little cakes had been for the last 20 years.

(They’ve been at the grocery store. Calling my name. Weeping that I haven’t snatched them up…which I’ll never not do again, especially since Jordan’s now in love with them too.)

Swiss Roll Layered No Bake Dessert Recipe

What’s your favorite Little Debbie® baked treat? What sweet memories do you have with these snacks? I’m sure you have a few, since the company is a family run bakery that’s spanned three generations and run for over 80 years. I think that my love of the Swiss Rolls preempted my love of cake rolls, what do you think?

Let’s break down this recipe, because it’s a really, really good one.

Layer 1: sliced up Swiss Rolls as the crust of the cake.

Layer 2: no-bake cheesecake.

Layer 3: chocolate pudding.

Layer 4: a fluffy layer of whipped topping or whipped cream (your choice) topped with more sliced Swiss Rolls (of course).

If this was one of those naming contest posts, I’d submit “Layers of Heaven” as my recipe title.
