Jello Pretzel Salad

What a great day. I know it was dreary but I happened to be inside with a great group of ladies. The Card Blitz flew along. We actually finished on time. WOW!!!

Today's recipe is one I found on my latest addiction. Pinterest. This is from the website I can remember when we would have a gathering at church, one of the ladies would bring this. Yummy. It is easy, delicious, and colorful.

Jello Pretzel Salad

Jello Pretzel Salad
by Lisa Poulsen
2 1/2 c. pretzels (crushed fine)
3 Tbsp. brown sugar
3/4 c. butter
1 (6 oz) pkg instant strawberry jello
1 10 oz. pkg. frozen strawberries or small container (16 oz) sliced fresh strawberries (I prefer fresh)
1 ( 8 oz ) pkg cream cheese
1 c. sugar
8 oz. cool whip

Combine pretzels, brown sugar, and melted butter and press into a greased 9 X 13 pan. You can use more butter if the crust isn't sticking together and make the pretzels more crushed than I did. Bake @ 350 for 10 minutes.

Make jello according to directions and add the strawberries. Refrigerate until partially set. *If it is not set enough it will leak through your cream cheese layer and make your pretzels soggy.

Beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Blend in cool whip. Spread over cooled crust make sure you spread completely to the edges to create a seal so your jello doesn't leak through. Pour jello over cream cheese layer. Refrigerate.

Stay dry and have a great weekend.

See you at the shop.
