Strawberry Jello pretzel dessert recipe
I'm not going to say this one's "easy" but it's worth it!
If you're two weeks or longer into your quarantine at this point, you're probably starting to go a bit mad finding things to do. Well, here's a delicious dessert that is by no means quick to make, but it's totally worth it. I'm not sugarcoating this one.
This dessert is technically called strawberry Jello pretzel "salad" and by all means you may call it a "salad" if it makes you feel less guilty. This is not healthy. But hey, nothing wrong with indulging a little.
I've been wanting to make this for years now. Or maybe it's taken me years to make it and now I've finally finished. This was a popular party dessert here in Pittsburgh, PA back in the 1960's (or so I've heard - I'm only 26). Gosh, everything was made with gelatin back in the 50's and 60's. So today I'm tying up my hair, blasting some old school jams, and having my own party in the kitchen.
This dessert consists of three layers: a salty pretzel crust, a sweet cream cheese and Cool-Whip center, and top layer of strawberry Jello. This recipe makes A LOT and it's got girth. It's a big boi. It's party size to feed up to 12 people.
Anyway, good luck!
Have a dance party while you cook. Then wash your hands again. Stay safe, friends.
