Here is something sooooooooo good that I have to share it with you because I thought maybe someone might want to make this for their 4th of July picnic! I make this every couple of weeks because not only do I love it but Joe gets a craving for it!! Some of you may have heard of it before or even had it before! Here is the recipe and PLEASE let me know if you make it and how you liked it!
Strawberry Pretzel Dessert
2 cups crushed pretzels (I use ¾ bag Roll Gold Pretzels Thins- 1 lb bag) (I put them in a ziploc and crush them with a mug)
3/4 cup melted butter
½ cup sugar
Mix together and spread into bottom of 13 x 9 pan (preferably glass) (spray with Pam)
Bake crust for 10 minutes at 350 degrees
Put aside to cool
8 oz cream cheese (softened)
1 cup sugar
16 oz. cool whip (thawed in refrigerator)
Blend together and spread over COOLED pretzel crust. Be sure to spread the whole way around leaving no crust to be seen (this is so the crust doesn't get soggy)
Refrigerate crust and cool whip while you make the top layer.
Large box of Stawberry Gelatin
1 cup boiling water
1 cup cold water
1 1/2 pint of FRESH strawberry (if you have a slicer, use that and slice them thin)
Add the 1 cup of boiling water to the strawberry gelatin in a medium mixing bowl.
Add the 1 cup of cold water after the boiling water.
Add the sliced strawberries.
Put the bowl with the gelatin and strawberries in the refrigerator until the gelatin starts to gel. You have to keep checking on it. It usually takes about an hour.
Pour the strawberry gelatin over the pretzel crust and refrigerator until ready to enjoy!!
