The crust is one of my favorite parts of this strawberry pretzel 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.
