OOOh yummy! Always a hit with kids and adults. There's always room for Jell-O! To crush the pretzels, put them in a ziploc bag and crush with a rolling pin.

The recipe is a little vague about how to prepare the jell-o. It would not cool down enough to thicken even a little. Need to maybe use the quickset method and put ice in and less water. I went ahead and poured it on top and OMG, the next thing I was watching was the liquid trading places with the cream cheese layer!! What a disaster :( Well, it still tasted ok, but the crust turned to mush,,,of course.
