If you haven’t had the opportunity to make this Jello yet, I suggest you whip it up soon.  It’s a great side dish to any meal!  It does require a bit of time and patience, but it’s worth it.

Pretzel Jello

2 cups finely crushed pretzels (the blender works great)

1/2 cup sugar, divided

2/3 cup butter, melted

1 1/2 pkg (8 oz each) Cream Cheese, softened

2 Tbsp milk

1 cup thawed cool whip

2 cups boiling water

1 pkg (6 oz) strawberry or peach flavored gelatin

1 1/2 cups cold water

1 qt (4 cups) fresh strawberries or peaches, sliced

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Mix the pretzel crumbs with 1/4 cup sugar and butter.  Press into the bottom of a 13×9 inch pan.  Bake 10 minutes and cool.

Beat the cream cheese, 1/4 cup sugar and milk until blended.  Stir in cool whip and spread over cooled crust.  Refrigerate.

Mix the boiling water with the gelatin mix in a large bowl; stir 2 minutes until the gelatin is completely dissolved.  Stir in cold water.  Refrigerate 1 1/2 hours or until thickened (spoon drawn through leaves definite impression).  Stir in strawberries; spoon over cream cheese layer. 

Refrigerate 3 hours or until firm.
