Strawberry Pretzel Salad

A little bit sweet, a little bit salty and totally delicious. That is the only way to describe this recipe that I found while surfing the 'net. Everyone enjoys this tasty treat - perfect as a light summer dessert, a side dish at special occasions or to bring along for a potluck. Whether you prefer the saltiness of pretzels or the taste of graham cracker crust, this versatile dish is just right either way.


  • 2 c crushed pretzels
  • 3/4 c melted butter or margarine
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 8 oz box of cream cheese
  • 1 small container of Cool Whip
  • 1 c confectioners sugar
  • 1 pkg of strawberry jello (6 oz.)
  • 2 c boiling water
  • 10 oz container of frozen strawberries
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Combine pretzels, margarine and sugar for the first layer. Or make a graham wafer crust with crushed wafers, butter and sugar. Put first layer into 9x13 pan.
  3. Bake for 8 minutes. Remove to cool.
  4. For the second layer, beat sugar into the cream cheese and fold in the whipped topping. Spread over cooled base.
  5. Third layer: mix jello with boiling water. Stir to dissolve. Stir in frozen strawberries.
  6. Mix together and set aside for 10 minutes. Pour over the cream cheese mixture.
  7. Refrigerate until firm. Cut into squares and serve.

  1. Hmmm, had this at church Sunday lunch. Was delicious . She made with raspberries rather than strawberries.

    Just a note...I have tried repeatedly to post for your "robot detector " is so frustrating to deal with. So if this does finally get posted, understand it wasn't easy.
