Cool and refreshing in the summer heat~~

Ingredients

2 cups crushed pretzels (about 8 ounces)( less salt optional)
3/4 cup butter, melted
3 tablespoons sugar

FILLING:
2 cups whipped topping
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar

TOPPING:
2 packages (3 ounces each) strawberry gelatin
2 cups boiling water
2 packages (16 ounces each) frozen sweetened sliced strawberries, thawed 2 cups fresh stawberries cut in half

Additional whipped topping and pretzels, optional

Directions

In a bowl, combine the pretzels, butter and sugar. Press into an ungreased 13x9-in. baking dish. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.

For filling, in a small bowl, beat whipped topping, cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Spread over pretzel crust. Refrigerate until chilled.

For topping, dissolve gelatin in boiling water in a large bowl. Stir in strawberries with syrup; chill until partially set. Carefully spoon over filling. (I like to add fresh strawberries on top) Chill for 4-6 hours or until firm. Cut into squares; serve with whipped topping if desired.

Alternatives I have also done~~
Punch up the flavor by adding chopped toasted nuts to the crust.
Want a crisp crust and fluffy filling? Cool baked crust completely.
Nobody likes gelatin that wanders...Using an offset spatula or the back of a spoon, spread cream cheese all the way to the edges so the gelatin stays put.
Instead of whipped topping, try fresh whipped cream, my choice...
