Need a dessert to bring to Momma this weekend for Mother’s Day? HERE IT IS! Quick, delicious, NO BAKE, and everyone’s favorite, Strawberry Pretzel Salad! The amazing combination of sweet, salty, creamy, and crunchy make this dessert a winner with any crowd.

This Strawberry Pretzel Dessert Salad is one of my favorite cheesecake desserts of all time, together with my No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake Salad. Growing up, I remember seeing this dessert at every bridal shower, Memorial Day picnic, summer party, and so on.

HOW TO MAKE STRAWBERRY PRETZEL DESSERT

Many recipes call for a tub of cool whip to be mixed in with the cream cheese, but I like to make my own fresh whipped cream because it’s smoother, silkier, and it tastes better.

Also, for the gelatin, I almost always use sugar-free Jell-O (gelatin). If you are not into that, no biggie. Use whichever one you like.

  • To start, we are going to make our pretzel crust which includes pretzels and butter. Once those two are combined, you’ll pop them in the oven and let them come together.
  • While that cools, we will make the cream cheese layer and spread it over our pretzel crust and refrigerate it until chilled.
  • In the meantime, we’re going to prepare our jello topping with fresh strawberries and strawberry gelatin, and let it partially set.
  • When ready, gelatin will be spooned over our cream cheese topping and left to set in the fridge for at least 6 hours, or overnight.

Cut and serve is all there’s left to do! Top with more whipped cream, if you wish, and go at it. You won’t regret it.
