Mom’s & Grandma Edna’s Strawberry Pretzel Salad/Dessert

by | Aug 2, 2011 | desserts/sweets, recipes

In looking through Mom’s recipe cards last week to find something special to make for our dinner last Thursday night, I came accross one of my all-time favorites…a recipe that my Grandma Edna and my mom used to make.  Some might call it a salad, but I always considered it a treat…so it must be a dessert!

This was the first time I made it, and it was a hit with my family.  So much so, that Zach asked if I could make it again this week.

Here’s the recipe:

2 c. crushed pretzels
3/4 c. melted margarine (I used butter)
4 T. sugar
8 oz. cream cheese
1 c. sugar
1 pt. Cool Whip
1 – 6 oz. pkg. strawberry jello
1-3/4 c. boiling water
10 oz. frozen strawberries (I used 16 oz.)

Mix crushed pretzels, margarine & 4 T. sugar and pat into a 9 x 11″ pan.  Bake at 400 degrees for 8 minutes.  Cool.  Cream together cream cheese & 1 c. sugar; fold in whipped topping.  Spread over cooled pretzel mixture.  Prepare jello using 1-3/4 c. boiling water.  Stir jello mixture into frozen strawberries.  Pour on top of cream layer & refrigerate until firm.
