Jello Pretzel Salad is a family favorite for bbqs and potlucks. A buttery pretzel crust topped with a cream cheese and jello layer. You can make this Jello Pretzel Salad with strawberries or raspberries. Either way, it's delicious.
Dissolve the Jello in the boiling water, stirring for 2 minutes or until Jello is completely dissolved and then stir in the strawberries and chill. Refrigerate until partially set. *If it is not set enough it will leak through your cream cheese layer and make your pretzels soggy.
Beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Fold in cool whip or whipped cream. Spread over cooled crust make sure you spread completely to the edges to create a seal so your jello doesn't leak through. Pour jello over cream cheese layer. Refrigerate until serving.
