Strawberry Pretzel Dessert


I've been a bit busy... with having a new baby and all. But I have a few recipes that I was saving just for now because I knew I wouldn't be up to cooking for a little while. Sorry it's taken me awhile to post. But don't worry, I'll be up and experimenting in the kitchen in no time. ;)

Now on to a delicious dessert. My mom has been making this for years. It's so yummy, and so easy!! Perfect for a last minute potluck dessert.

Strawberry Pretzel Dessert

1 stick melted butter
1 1/2 c. crushed pretzels
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese
1 lg. container Cool Whip
1 c. sugar
1 (6 oz.) pkg. strawberry Jello
1 lg. pkg. frozen strawberries or fresh, cut into fourths

Mix melted butter, pretzels, and 1/2 cup sugar together and press into 9 x 13 inch pan. Bake 6 minutes at 350 degrees.
Dissolve Jello in 2 cups boiling water and add frozen strawberries. Put in refrigerator and let gel.
Combine cream cheese, Cool Whip, and 1/2 cup sugar; put on top of crumbs. When Jello is starting to set, pour over cheese layer and refrigerate until firm.
Before serving, garnish with fresh strawberries.
