Ingredients

  • 2.5 Cups crushed pretzels
  • 3/4 Cup butter/margarine, melted
  • 3 TBSP Sugar
  • 8oz Cream Cheese
  • 1 Cup powdered sugar
  • 9oz Cool Whip
  • 1 large package (or 2 small) Cherry Jello
  • 2 Cups boiling water
  • 2 Cups cold water

Directions

  • Mix Jello and water.
  • Refrigerate no longer than 30-40 minutes.
  • While this is chilling, crush pretzels with rolling pin on cutting board.
  • Transfer crushed pretzels to a bowl (do not transfer all of the dust as it will be too salty).
  • Stir first 3 ingredients together and put in 9X13 pan.
  • Bake 10 minutes at 350.
  • Allow to cool.
  • Mix powdered sugar and cream cheese with electric mixer.
  • Gently fold in cool whip.
  • Carefully spread over the pretzel "crust" making sure that none of the crust is visible from the top.
  • When Jello is slightly syrupy, gently pour over cool whip later and refrigerate until Jello is set.
  • Keep refrigerated.
  • TIP: Make sure the white layer is completely sealed against the pretzels.
  • You do not want the jello to seep into the pretzel layer!!!

Notes

Some people call it a salad, some a dessert. I call it GOOD!
