Berry Pretzel Layer Dessert

Berry Pretzel Layer Dessert


This is a good old pot luck recipe that I keep in my recipe collection. I do not make it nearly enough. It is really pretty easy to put together. It just takes a little time because you have to wait for the crust to cool and the jell-o to set.  The original recipe was given to me in a family cookbook many years back. I have revised it a little along the way.

Crust Layer:
2 Cups Crushed Pretzels
1 stick butter
1/3 cup sugar

Melt butter, mix in sugar and pretzels. Press onto bottom of 9*13 baking dish. Use a measuring cup to smush down the crust.

Cream Cheese Layer:
2 Cups Cool Whip
1 pkg cream cheese
1/2 cup powdered sugar or white sugar

Mix cream cheese and sugar. Add in cool whip. Spread onto crust when the crust has cooled.

Top Jell-o Layer:
1 pkg strawberry jell-o
1 pkg pineapple jell-o
2 cups water
1 pkg frozen mixed berries
2 banana's, sliced

In a microwaveable bowl, place 2 cups water and heat to boiling. Mix in jell-o. Once jell-o has dissolved add in berries and banana's. Place into refrigerater and when soft set pour over cream cheese layer. Allow to set in refrigerator for a few hours.

Lessons Learned: If you forget about the jell-o and it sets up in the fridge, remove it and put it back into the microwave for a minute or two. It will liquify enough to pour over the cream cheese.
