Jello Pretzel Salad

Hi everyone!

Tonight we bring you an awesome 'salad'. I use the word salad loosely, as it's really a dessert. This recipe is tasty and very pretty! You can use any flavor of Jello and any frozen fruit that you like. We usually use strawberries.

Here's what you need:

First Layer
2 cups of pretzels, crushed
3 tablespoons of sugar
3/4 cup of melted butter

Second Layer
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 cup of sugar
8 oz. Cool Whip

Third Layer
1 large or 2 small packages of Jello
3 cups of boiling water
1 1/2 to 2 cups of frozen fruit, chopped

Here's what to do:

First layer - Mix the ingredients and press the mixture into a 9" x 13" pan. Bake the layer at 400 degrees for about 8 minutes (the pretzels were look the same before and after). Let that layer cool.

Second Layer - Blend the cream cheese and sugar, then fold in the cool whip. Once combined, spread over the pretzel layer. Make sure to go all the way to the edges so that the jello layer doesn't leak through to the rest of the salad.  We also recommend you lick the bowl!

Third Layer - Dissolve the jello into the boiling water and add in the frozen fruit. Stir until the fruit thaws (about 2 minutes). Pour over the cool whip layer and use a spoon to make sure the fruit is evenly spread out.  Cover in saran wrap.

Chill in the fridge for at least four hours or until the jello layer is firm.

We would love to know what flavor jello and type of frozen fruit you use...comment below!


  1. Wow!! I had to see it for myself! The name was intriguing but I had no idea what to expect. It would be fun with different flavors. Yum.. I'm pinning this one.

  2. If you make it with different flavors, let us know how it turns out!
