Recipe: Strawberry Pretzel Salad

Crust Ingredients

2 cups crushed pretzels

3 tablespoons sugar

3/4 cup melted butter

Filling ingredients

One 8-ounce tub of whipped topping

One 8-ounce block of cream cheese, softened

1 cup sugar

Topping ingredients

One 6-ounce box of strawberry gelatin

16 ounces of frozen strawberries

2 cups water


Mix the crushed pretzels, sugar and melted butter. Press into the bottom of a 9-by-13 pan and bake at 400 degrees for 7 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool for one hour.

Mix whipped topping, softened cream cheese and sugar together with a mixer until combined. After crust is cool, pour over top. Refrigerate.

Add gelatin to two cups of boiling water. Once dissolved, add frozen strawberries. Pour the gelatin into a separate container and allow to partially set up.

Once partially set up, pour onto the crust and filling mixture. Allow to set up completely for at least an hour in the fridge.

Note: This salad is best eaten within the first few days it is made before the pretzels start to get soggy.
