Strawberry Pretzel Salad

This is a staple on my family’s holiday table.  I think it falls into the category of dessert, but Mom and Grandma serve it as a side dish.  Either way it’s a yummy addition.

Strawberry Pretzel Salad

1 1/2 cups crushed pretzels
3/4 cups melted butter
1 cup, 2 tbsp sugar
1 large container whipped topping
8 oz cream cheese, softened
2 small packages strawberry jello
2 small packages frozen sliced strawberries, thawed
2 cups hot water

Combine pretzels, butter, and 2 tbsp sugar and press into 9×13 baking dish.  Combine whipped topping, less 1 cup, cream cheese, and 1 cup sugar and pour over crust.  Refrigerate.

Mix jello, strawberries, and water and let stand until thick and syrupy.  Pour over cream cheese mixture.  Spread remaining cup whipped topping over strawberry mixture.  Refrigerate until firm.
