Pretzel Salad
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1.5 stick butter
  • 2 cups crush pretzels (you can put pretzels in a ziploc bag and crush them with a rolling pin...or the more fun way is to put the bag on the ground and stomp on them)
  • 8 oz package of cream cheese, softened
  • 1.5 cups whipped cream
  • 2 pkg (3 oz each) strawberry jello
  • 2 cup hot pineapple juice
  • 2 boxes frozen strawberry and juice (10 oz each)
  1. Mix crushed pretzels and sugar, and spread in a 13x9 pan.
  2. In bowl, use mixer to blend cream cheese, sugar and whipped cream. Spread mixture over the pretzels in the 13x9 pan.
  3. In another bowl, dissolve jello in the hot pineapple juice. Add strawberried and juice to jello. Let set partially.
  4. Spread jello mix over top of cream cheese. Chill under jello is set.
My mom always made this for family parties and graduations - it's not a real salad, but it is so good!
