  • 1/8 cup sugar
  • 2 cups crushed pretzels
  • 1 1/2 sticks melted butter

Cream Cheese Layer

  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 4 Cups cool whip

Jell-O Layer:

  • 1 lg pkg Raspberry (or strawberry) Jell-O
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 1 pkg FROZEN strawberries (or raspberries)

I like to mix the two. I usually do raspberry Jell-O and strawberries but you can mix it up, or keep just one flavor.

Mix crust ingredients together and press in a 9 x 13 inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Cool completely.

Beat cheese mixture together and spread over cooled crust.

Dissolve Jell-O in boiling water. Stir in frozen strawberries. Place in bowl to congeal. Spread over cheese. (**I usually slice the strawberries and blend them in a blender before mixing with the hot water. This time I blended half and sliced half. You might just want them all sliced, which is easiest. It's up to you- although I think it's best if they are blended!)

Devin tried to make this once. It didn't turn out very good. The pretzels were too soggy.
