Strawberry Pretzel Jello Salad
Author: Nikki
This is one of the most requested recipes for potlucks and BBQs! Its sweet, salty and the perfect combo of textures!
  • 1 (6 oz) box Strawberry Jello
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 2 cups crushed pretzels (I used the checker shaped ones but you can also use sticks)
  • ¾ cup butter, melted
  • 3 Tbsp. sugar
  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • ⅔ cup sugar
  • 8 oz. cool whip, thawed to room temperature
  • 3 cups strawberries, sliced
  1. Bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Remove from stove and add jello. Stir until Jello is dissolved. Allow jello to cool to room temperature.
  2. Combine melted butter and sugar. Stir in the crushed pretzels. Press evenly on the bottom of a 9x13 pan. Bake at 375 degrees F for 8 minutes. Let cool completely.
  3. In a large bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar, and cool whip. Beat until smooth. Spread over pretzel crust. Make sure to get the cream mixture tight against the edges of the pan to prevent the jello mixture from seeping through.
  4. Arrange sliced strawberries over the top of cream mixture.
  5. Pour cooled jello over cream layer and put in the fridge for at least 4 hours.
