It’s strawberry pretzel salad. Or in my case, I used it as a dessert.
I can also tell you that if you don’t have a food processor, look into getting one. I used my KitchenAid food processor for the crust and the filling. Made it so quick and easy.
Dumped 2 cups of pretzels, tablespoon of sugar and 3/4 cup of melted butter into the KitchenAid food processor and pulsated for a few seconds. Then dumped the the mixture into a 9 x 13 pan.
Bake on 350 for about 8 minutes and then let the crust cool. Wash out that food processor bowl and blade a get ready for the filling.
Put an 8 ounce block of cream cheese that is at room temperature and a thawed cool whip in the food process with a cup of sugar.
Pulsate a few times till it is all incorporated.
Pour over top of the cooled pretzel crust and get your strawberry topping ready.
Mix 2 cups of boiling water with two packages of strawberry jello. Then pour 20 ounces of sliced frozen strawberries into the mixture. I didn’t have mine completely thawed. This actually helped the jello set up a little. If the strawberries are thawed then pop in the freezer for a few minutes to set up a bit.
Pour over top of the filling and refrigerate till you are ready to serve.
Trust me, everyone will love it! It’s a classic!
