Pineapple Pretzel “Salad” - Scott P. - LEU
Why I Love This Recipe
My mom made this recipe for all family gatherings and after bringing it once to a gathering she was always asked to bring it EVERY TIME. I have recently made it for friends, and it is always a BIG hit.
Ingredients You'll Need
1 Cup coarsely crushed pretzels
½ Cup butter, melted
1 Cup sugar, divided (1/2 cup each)
1 Package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 Can (20 oz) unsweetened crushed pineapple, drained
1 Carton (12 oz) frozen whipped topping, thawed
Preheat oven to 400°. Mix pretzels, melted butter and 1/2 cup sugar. Press into a 13x9-in. pan. Bake 7 minutes. (Keep an eye on this and don’t let it burn) Cool completely on a wire rack.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, beat cream cheese and remaining sugar until creamy. Fold in pineapple and whipped topping; refrigerate, covered, until serving.
To serve, break pretzel mixture into small pieces. Stir into pineapple mixture.
