  • 2 cups pretzels crushed
  • 3/4 cup butter melted
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 (8-ounce package) cream cheese
  • 1 8-ounce package frozen whipped topping
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 ½ cups boiling water
  • 2 (3-ounce) packages strawberry Jell-O
  • 2 (10-ounce) packages frozen strawberries


  • Preheat oven to 400˚.
  • Mix crushed pretzels with melted butter and 2 tablespoons sugar. Press pretzel mixture into the bottom of 9 x 13-inch casserole dish and bake until set, about 8-10 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.
  • Mix together cream cheese, 3/4 cup sugar, and whipped topping in a large bowl until smooth. Spread over the cooled crust, making sure to spread completely to the edges.
