- 2 cups crushed pretzels
- 3⁄4 cup margarine
- 1 1⁄2 cups granulated sugar
- 8 ounces cream cheese (room temperature)
- 8 ounces Cool Whip
- 2 (3 ounce) boxes strawberry Jell-O gelatin dessert
- 2 cups boiling water
- 1 pint frozen sweetened strawberries (thawed)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Mix crushed pretzels, butter, and 1/2 C sugar. Pat into 9"x13" baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes. Beat cream cheese, 1 C sugar, and Cool Whip together and spread on top of pretzel crust. Dissolve jello in 2 C boiling water. Add strawberries; chill until slightly set. Pour the jello mixture over the cream cheese mixture. Chill until hard.
Awesome desert - this is almost like mine except I use only 1/3 cup butter with the pretzels and 1/2 cup sugar. I mix the cream cheese with 1/4 cup sugar and 8 oz cool whip.
