Strawberries take on a whole new meaning in this Super Easy Strawberry Pretzel Dessert Recipe!
To make this delicious Strawberry Pretzel Dessert, you will need the following ingredients:
The crust is one of my favorite parts of this dessert as it combines sweet and salty in the perfect way. Crush the pretzels into small pieces (not into a fine dust) and mix with the melted butter and sugar.
I prefer a thick crust so spread the entire mixture on the bottom of a 9×13 pan. You can also use half for the crust and save the rest for the top. When I use the entire mixture for the crust, I make a small extra batch to spread on top or just top with crushed pretzels.
Mix the cream cheese and powdered sugar together and then add the Cool Whip to the mixture. Spread this over the crust.
Then spread the pie filling over the top of this mixture and gently ensure the entire surface is covered evenly.
Add the remaining pretzel crumbs over the top and place in the freezer. Take out one hour before serving.
