Easy Strawberry Pretzel Dessert

Strawberry Pretzel Salad

yield: 18 SERVINGS

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter. melted
  • 2 and 1/2 cups pretzels, finely crushed
  • 3 Tablespoons sugar
  • 2 – 10 oz. bags of frozen or fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 6 oz. strawberry gelatin
  • 2 cups water, boiling
  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 8 oz. Cool Whip, thawed or whipped cream

Directions

1

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

2

In a bowl, combine crushed pretzels, butter, and 3 tablespoons sugar.

3

Press the mixture into the bottom of a 9Γ—13 baking dish. Bake for 8-10 minutes at 400 degrees until set. Let cool.

4

Cream together the cup of sugar and cream cheese, and fold in the Cool Whip.

5

Spread this mixture on top of the pretzel crust. Make sure to spread it all the way to the edges of pan to create a barrier between the gelatin and crust. I recommend placing the pan back in the fridge to cool for awhile while you make the gelatin portion.

6

On the stove, boil water and dissolve gelatin.

7

Pour in strawberries. (Note: I allowed the frozen strawberries to thaw for a few minutes and then sliced a few of the bigger strawberries before hand.) Let mixture set for a couple minutes and then pour over the cream cheese layer.

8

Place in the fridge until the gelatin completely sets up. The hardest part is waiting! Makes about 18 servings.

My family goes crazy over this dish! It tastes way better than it looks. The crust is crunchy almost like toffee and the creamy middle is so good! You could also use raspberries and raspberry gelatin if preferred. What an easy and delicious dessert!

Hip Tip: Throw a few blueberries on top and you’ll have a red, white and blue patriotic dessert for the 4th of July! πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ
