Delicious Pretzel Gelatin Jello Dessert Recipe

For the past 15 years or so I have been making this recipe for pretzel gelatin dessert that was given to me by my great auntie. It is one of my husband's favorite dessert recipes and we think you would enjoy it too! We tend to make it mostly during the summertime but it would also be a great dessert to make around the holidays too!

From time to time I will substitute the strawberry gelatin with cherry gelatin and use fresh cherries instead of the strawberries. It is equally delicious! So whichever one you like better, is the one you should use.

Pretzel Gelatin Dessert Recipe

Bottom Layer:

3 cups thin pretzel sticks, crumbled
3/4 cup butter, melted
3 tbsp. granulated sugar

Mix the bottom layer ingredients and press into a 9 x 13" pan. Bake at 400 degrees for 8 minutes. Cool.

Second Layer:

8 oz. pkg cream cheese
9 oz. cool whip
1 cup granulated sugar

Blend cream cheese and sugar together. Fold in Cool Whip. Spread over cooled pretzel mixture.

Top Layer:

6 oz. pkg. strawberry flavored gelatin
2 cups boiling water
2 (10 oz) pkgs. frozen strawberries

Combine top layer ingredients and let stand for 10 minutes. Then pour over the second layer. Chill for 6 hours before serving.
