Tasty Thursday #6

Hosted by Trista at The Pumkin Patch.

I had this on my menu this week for a dessert. It was very good. This is a perfect summer dessert!

Pretzel Surprise

2 2/3 cups broken pretzels. (Put in a bag and crush)
1 1/2 sticks butter, melted
8 oz. cream cheese
1 cup sugar
12 oz. Cool Whip
2 10 oz. bags frozen strawberries*
1 can crushed pineapple, drained
2 small boxes strawberry Jell-O

Combine crushed pretzel sticks and melted butter. Put in a 9x13 inch pan. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes. Cool. Cream together sugar and cream cheese. Add Cool Whip and mix well. Gently spread over pretzels. (Place large spoonfuls across the pan and spread lightly to cover the pretzels - pretzels will try to move.) Refrigerate. In a large bowl, mix 2 packages of Jell-O with 2 cups boiling water. Stir to dissolve. Add frozen strawberries and drained pineapple. Refrigerate. When Jell-O is fairly set, (doesn't take long) pour over cream cheese mixture. Refrigerate until completely set.
12 servings
