A pretzel crust with butter and sugar followed by a creamy whipped cream and cream cheese mixture, followed by jello with fruit!
Pretzel Jello is such a fun and yummy dish. My husband has always been a fan of Jello since I met him. So on holidays I try to make sure it is always part of the meal!
2 cups pretzels
3/4 cup butter, melted
3 Tablespoons granulated sugar
1 cup sugar
8 oz cream cheese, softened
8 oz cool whip, slightly thawed
6 oz box of strawberry jello
2 cups boiling water
20 oz frozen strawberries, slightly thawed
Take the pretzels and crush them up. Then place in a bowl and add the melted butter and sugar and stir together. Then press in the bottom of a 9×13 inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes. Then remove from oven.
In a bowl add together sugar and cream cheese and beat together. Then fold in the cool whip. Then spread over the pretzel crust once it has cooled.
In a bowl add the jello packet and boiling water and mix until the sugar is dissolved. Then add the slightly thawed strawberries and set aside for about 10 minutes. Then pour the jello mixture over the cream cheese and pretzel crust.
Then place in the fridge to set up.
