Strawberry Pretzel Salad

It's been quite sometime since I've posted a recipe up for What I Ate Wednesday!  Since last weekend was Easter, I made a delicious recipe that I just HAD to share with you all!  :) 

You read that title correctly, however; you're probably thinking that this is a salad (green) with strawberries and pretzel's in it.  If you are thinking that, then you are wrong.  But I will say, what I am about to post about, is something so delicious and amazing.  It sweet and salty and is the perfect amount of both!  To find the original recipe, click here.


  • 1 (8 ounce) container of frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 2 (3 ounce) packages of strawberry flavored Jell-O
  • 2 cups of boiling water
  • 2 (10 ounce) packages of frozen strawberries
  • 2 cups of crushed pretels
  • 3/4 cup of butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons of white sugar
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup of white sugar

  1. Get out a 9x13 baking dish.
  2. Preheat over to 400 degrees F
  3. Crush pretzels into crumbs (like you would with graham crackers), I like to leave the pretzels a little in tact, but mostly crushed.
  4. Mix together crushed pretzels, butter and 3 tbsp of sugar.  Press this mixture into the bottom of your pan.
  5. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, until set.  Set aside to cool.
  6. In a large mixing bowl cream together cream cheese and 1 cup of sugar.  Then mix by hand with spatula the whipped topping into the cream cheese mixture.  Spread this mixture onto the cooled crust.
  7. Dissolve Jell-O in boiling water (2 cups water).  Stir in still frozen strawberries and all to sit for a couple minutes.  When the mixture is the consistency of egg whites, pour and spread over the cream cheese mixture.
  8. Place in refrigerator to set the Jell-O (takes about an hour)
  9. Eat and enjoy the deliciousness of the salty and sweet mixture!
