Strawberry Pretzel Desert

YUM! I got this recipe off of Landon's playgroup message board and I am sorry I waited so long to make it.

Here you go:
1. Crush 2 cups of pretzels
2. Mix the crushed pretzels with a stick of melted butter and 2 Tbs. sugar.
3. Spread evenly into a 13x9 pan and bake for 10 minutes on 350.
4. While the crust is baking, mix 8 oz cool whip, 8 oz cream cheese and 1 cup sugar.
5. After the crust has cooled, spread the mixture on top.
6. Place sliced strawberries on top of the mixture.

7. Mix a large pack of strawberry jello, 2 cups of boiling water, and 3/4 cup sugar and pour over the top of the strawberries.

8. Place the dish in the refrigerator and allow the jello to set.
I think next time I am going to cut out the sugar except the sugar that goes in the crust. It was good that sweet, but it was too sweet. This of course will make it a tad healthier as well!

Landon's verdict: he liked the mixture of cool whip, cream cheese, and sugar but that's it.

My Uncle use to make this all the time. It's been years since I've had it. Thanks for the recipe!
