I found this recipe (pretty common one) and modified it. Haven't tried the crust yet in this particular recipe, but I've used it in other things. Y'all feel free to tell me how it works.. sort of posting for my own reference as well! Most of cook time is chill time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine crust ingredients and pat in the bottom of a 9x13" pan. Add a little more water if necessary. Bake 8 minutes in preheated 375 oven. Let cool completely.
  2. Combine splenda and cream cheese in medium bowl for 3 minutes over low speed. Mixture will be thick. Gradually add Cool Whip, do not over beat. Pour over cooled pretzel crust. Cover and chill 1 hour.
  3. Combine Jello and hot water in medium bowl. Gradually add berries, stirring a few minutes until mixture has slightly cooled. Carefully pour over cream cheese mixture. Cover and chill at least 2 hours.

Made this for a neighbor & her visiting grandkids, & since I just knew the inquiring ones would ask about the 'pretzel' part, when making the crust, I crushed a couple of pretzels along with the cereal! Strawberries aren't that flavorful around here this time of year, so I used raspberries! Definitely a keeper of a recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick-A-Chef]

This is a great recipe. I put the cereal in a baggie and crushed it some. Followed the rest of the instructions exactly and it was wonderful. I fixed it for family who are diabetic but even those who are not wanted the recipe. This one will be going into the recipe box to keep!

What a great yummy dessert. I was surprised by the "crust" on the bottom. I think nest time, I may crush the cereal first, I didn't do that this time. I loved the creamy middle layer and would love to try this with other fruit/jello combos. Reviewed for PAC Spring 2008.
