Total Time: 35 minutes
- 3/4 cup butter
- 2 cups pretzel crumbs
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 cups whipped topping, softened
- 6 ounce package strawberry gelatin

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Melt butter in 9 x 13-inch pan in oven. Remove from oven and stir in pretzel crumbs and 3 tablespoons sugar. Spread evenly in pan. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Remove and cool completely. Beat cream cheese and sugar. Stir in whipped topping. Spoon onto cooled pretzel crust. Dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Stir in defrosted strawberries and juice. Smash-up berries while combining. Pour over cream cheese layer. Refrigerate until gelatin congeals. Serve cold.
Note: I used sugar-free gelatin and substituted the sugar in the cream cheese with Splenda.
