Strawberry Pretzel Salad Tip

The only tip I have is to make sure you spread the cream center all the way to the edges to seal the crust. This way it doesn’t get soggy with the strawberry topping. Strawberry Pretzel Salad is a colorful addition to a Fourth of July Picnic or Valentine’s party. It is a classic dessert year round.

    This is my favorite dessert ! I make it for absolutely every event just be careful not to make the pretzels soft with the jello! But not matter what it’s amazing 🙂

    LOVE! But on the cream cheese layer I use powdered sugar instead of white sugar. And don’t get impatient and pour the jello layer too soon! it can get messy and make the pretzles soggy!

    This is my family’s favorite food ever, I have to serve it at every important meal BUT, I will let you all in on a little secret that I don’t tell very many people: replace the water in the jello layer with 2 cups of pineapple juice. It adds a tang that sets this above all the rest. I never use water. Enjoy!

      I have found that it needs to be made and eaten on the same day. If not, the pretzels get soggy and don’t have that wonderful crunch!

    I’ve always made this the night before so that the jello sets completely overnight in the fridge. I’ve never had any left over and have been making this for about 20 years.

    1. I’m new to Pinterest, but where are the ingredients and instructions for the crust? Sorry for the basic question, but that’s where I’m st. Thanks.
