Strawberry Pretzel Salad

Salad… haha that’s funny but it’s what they call it. Makes it sound so much healthier than it is. Total dessert city on this one so I dare you to tell your kids that dessert is a strawberry salad and hear the whines, then you and your husband eat the whole pan by yourselves. Just kidding but that’s something my husband and I would tease our kids with. This dish is the epitome of salty sweet goodness and would be a great summer dessert.


2 c crushed pretzels
1 c butter, melted
1 c sugar
8 oz cream cheese, softened
2 c cool whip
6 oz strawberry jello
20 oz frozen strawberries, chopped
2 c boiling water

This dessert is in three layers. Mix crushed pretzels and melted butter in 9×13 pan. Bake at 375 oven for 9 minutes. Set aside to cool. Cream together the sugar and cream cheese.; fold in cool whip and refrigerate. When pretzel layer is cooled, top with cream cheese mixture. in another bowl, mix boiling water and jello; stir thoroughly and add strawberries. When jello mixture has cooled some, pour on top of cream cheese layer. Refrigerate.
