  • 2 cups of pretzels, crushed
  • ¾ cup of butter, melted
  • 2 tbsp of sugar

Cream Layer

  • 3 cups of heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 8 ounces of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup of granulated sugar, divided

Jell-O Layer

  • 2 cups water, boiling
  • 2 small packages of instant strawberry jello
  • 20 ounces frozen strawberries, sliced


Step 1: Pretzel Crust

Preheat your oven to 375°F, then in a food processor, add the pretzels, and let them blend until fine crumbs. In a large mixing bowl, add the pretzel crumbs, then add the melted butter and sugar, and mix them all together until well combined. Pour it into a large 9×13 baking dish spreading it evenly, then press it to the bottom of the dish, and bake it in the preheated oven for about 10 minutes until lightly golden. Set it aside and allow it to cool down completely.


Step 2: Cream Layer

In the bowl of a stand mixer or another large mixing bowl, add the whipping cream, half a cup of sugar, and vanilla, then beat them all together until stiff peaks form. In a separate bowl, add the softened cream cheese and half a cup of sugar, then beat them together until combined, and add half the portion of the whipped cream mixture to the cream cheese mixture. Give them a good mix until combined, then spread it over the cooled pretzel crust evenly, and set it aside.

Carefully pour it over the cream layer, then spread it evenly, and then put it inside the refrigerator to chill for at least 2 hours.
