Strawberry Pretzel “Salad”

We’re not sure about the name of this dessert, but the ingredients sure look like they capture that perfect combination of salty and sweet.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups crushed pretzels
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 3/4 stick melted butter
  • 8 oz pkg cream cheese
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 8 oz. Coolwhip
  • 2 pkg strawberry Jello
  • small can pineapple
  • 16 oz sliced frozen strawberries

Preheat oven to 400.

Mix first three ingredients together in a bowl. Spray a 9×13 pan with Pam. Spread pretzel mixture in bottom of pan and bake for 7 minutes. Remove from oven and cool/refrigerate.

Mix softened cream cheese with 3/4 cup sugar and fold in 8 oz of Coolwhip. Spread this mixture over pretzel crust. Refrigerate.

Next Boil 2 cups of water and add to 2 packages of Jello. Do not add any more water! Refrigerate until it just starts to gel (30 minutes or so depending on your  fridge).

In a separate bowl, combine strawberries and crushed pineapples including all the juice. Add this mixture to the slightly gelled Jello and pour over the cream cheese layer. Refrigerate overnight or at least 4 hours.
