Strawberry pretzel salad is a layered dessert made up of crushed up pretzels for the crust, cool whip, and cream cheese for the middle layer, and it gets topped up with jello strawberries.



  • 1 cup crushed pretzels 
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 8oz   package fat-free cream cheese, softened 
  • 1 8oz  container fat-free whipped topping, thawed 
  • 1/4 cup white sugar 
  • 1 3oz package strawberry gelatin (can use sugar-free)
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 10 package frozen strawberries or fresh strawberries 


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Stir together crushed pretzels, melted butter, and 2 tablespoon sugar; mix well and press mixture into the bottom of an 8x8 inch baking dish.
  3. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, until set. Set aside to cool.
  4. In a large mixing bowl cream together cream cheese and 1/4 cup sugar. Fold in whipped topping. Spread mixture onto cooled crust.
  5. Dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Stir in still frozen strawberries and allow to. If the jello isn't cooled enough the liquid will seep through the other layers. Refrigerate until set.
  6. Divide into 9 equal portions
