Strawberry Pretzel Squares
2 cups pretzels, finely crushed
1/2 cup sugar, divided
2/3 cup butter or margarine, melted
12 oz. cream cheese, softened
2 Tbsp milk
1 cup Cool Whip Topping, thawed
2 cups boiling water
6 oz. package of strawberry gelatin
1 1/2 cup cold water
4 cups fresh strawberries, sliced
Preheat oven at 350ºF. Mix crushed pretzels, 1/4 cup of sugar and melted butter in a bowl, and press onto the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan. Bake for 10 minutes and let it cool.
Beat cream cheese, the rest of the sugar (should be 1/4 cup) and milk in a bowl. Stir in Cool Whip and spread over the cooled crust. Refrigerate.
Add boiling water to gelatin mix in a large bowl. Stir for 2 minutes until completely dissolved. Stir in cold water. Refrigerate for 1 to 1 1/2 hours or until thickened.
Stir in strawberries and spoon over cream cheese layer. Refrigerate for 3 hours or until firm.
Cut into squares and serve with extra Cool Whip on top if you'd like. Enjoy!
It's Friday the 13th. Be careful out there!
