I first had this friends desert salad at my friends house when Little Crab and I were there for a play date. WOW! When my mom called me asking for ideas for something different to take to a cook out this came to mind. I called up my friend and got the recipe. When I called my mom back with the idea, I told her I would give it to her if she made some for me. lol. She thought I was kidding until she tried it for herself. This is a great dish to take to the summer cook out, church dinner or just for your family.
Prep time: 40 mins
Cook time: 7 mins Total time: 47 mins
3 cups crushed pretzels
1 cup melted butter
4 tablespoons sugar, plus 3/4 cup sugar
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese
1 (8-ounce) container whipped topping
2 (3-ounce) packages strawberry gelatin dessert mix
2 cups boiling water
2 (10-ounce) packages frozen strawberries
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Make Jell-O with water per package instructions.
Add strawberries to jello and set aside to cool.
For the crust, mix the pretzels, butter, and the 4 tablespoons of sugar.
Press pretzel mixture into a 9 by 13-inch pan and bake for 7 minutes then set aside to cool
In a mixing bowl, beat together cream cheese and 3/4 cup sugar
Fold whipped topping into the cream cheese mixture.
Once crust and Jell-O is cool you are ready to put your salad together
spread the cream cheese mixture ontop of the pretzel crust making sure the cream cheese is even
and pressed-up against the edges of the pan (so your jello stays on top)
then pour your jello mixture on top of the cream cheese
chill in the fridge for 3-4 hours.
This is even better the second day!
