Pretzel Jell-O!


Don't knock it until you try it! Since I live in the jell-o capital of the world, it was time to add a jell-o recipe to my recipe box. This pretzel jello is more like a dessert than a side dish or salad though. You have the sweet and salty pretzel crust, cream cheese and cool whip middle, and strawberry jello with blended strawberries mixed in for the top. People are always surprised at how amazing this treat really is!

Pretzel Jello

1 3/4 C chopped pretzels
3 T sugar
3/4 C melted butter

mix together, press into a 9x13 pan, and bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes, or until firm. Cool completely.

8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 C sugar
8 oz Cool Whip

Blend cream cheese and sugar together. Fold in cool whip. Spread over pretzel crust when completely cooled. You need to be sure to seal all the edges with the cream cheese mixture.

6 oz pkg strawberry jell-o
1 C hot water
1 C cold water
16 oz frozen strawberries, mostly thawed.

Blend the strawberries and 1 C cold water until pureed. Dissolve jell-o in 1 C hot water. Mix with strawberries. Let cool, but not set, before pouring over cream cheese layer.

Keep in fridge until jell-o is set.

We make it with a raspberry layer on top instead of the strawberry. Delicious!

I've seen this (or similar) recipe several times and have always been chicken to try it. Is it good? Really? Because, like you, I also live in the Jell-O capital.

I agree - you can't be a snob about this recipe until you try it. I have a similar one and it always gets rave reviews!

Yum! Thank you for posting this. My sis-in-law makes it and I LOVE it, but always forget to ask for the recipe. Can I really count this as a salad? Because I want to make it every week.

Ingrid said...

Looks good Becky! Will have to print it out to give a try sometime. I especially love the pretzel crust bet it would taste yummy as a base for other desserts. Something with caramel, maybe?!

I'm totally intrigued. I never thought I'd crave Jell-O, but I really really want to try this. It sounds so good, fruity, creamy, crunchy--a perfect combination of flavors and textures. Mmm, I'm definitely going to have to try this.

This is a family favorite for us. My hubby's side of the family has it for holidays and though I hate Jello with a passion, this is surprisingly delicious and the only way I'll eat it. :)
