Strawberry Pretzel Salad. You're welcome.

Strawberry Pretzel Salad

I guess you could tweak the ingredients and use low fat, low calorie everything...but why would you do that?? I think you should just make something else! :oD )

2 C crushed pretzels
3/4 cup melted butter
3 T sugar

1  8 oz pkg cream cheese,  softened
1 c sugar
1  8 oz Cool Whip, thawed

2  (3 oz) pkg strawberry Jello
2 c boiling water
2 (10 oz) pkg frozen strawberries (Do not use fresh strawberries! They contain an enzyme that prevents the jello from setting up.)

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Mix together pretzels, butter and 3 T sugar and press into bottom of a 9X13 baking dish.  Bake 8-10 mins until set.  Cool.  Cream together sugar and cream cheese, fold in cool whip and spread mixture over cooled crust.  Dissolve jello in boiling water, stir in frozen strawberries and allow to set to egg white consistency. (Don't let strawberry mixture set too long, it will get chunky and will not pour well.) Pour and spread over cream cheese mixture. Refrigerate until set.
