The directions didn't say what to do with the 1 1/2 cups cold water, so I dissolved the gelatin in the hot water, then added the cold water and chilled the mixture until thickened, as I think part of this direction was lost and that's what I recalled doing from a different recipe. Otherwise it was great.

I have eaten this many times at parties and dinners. I adapted mine using sugar free, low fat, fat free items with splenda as the sugar. I do not have an idea how many calories I saved, but it was enough to have a second helping! :-)) The years I have been a diabetic I take food(s) to parties. If you never tell them, they won't know.

My mom has been making this for about 8 years now and it's a wonderful dish. Very yummy and always a hit. The pretzels will get a little mushy after a day or two, so eat it up quickly.
