Strawberry Pretel Salad

This is something that my Mom used to make, but it was a big tradition for my husband's family. My mother-in-law makes this every year for the Holiday's. She makes hers with raspberry Jell-O and frozen raspberries, instead of strawberry. Both ways are awesome! -Sarah

6 oz. strawberry Jell-O
2 cups boiling water
2, 10 oz. packages frozen strawberries
-Dissolve Jell-O in water and strawberries, stir until melted. Chill until slightly thickened.

2 1/2 cups crushed pretzels
3 T. brown sugar
3/4 cup melted butter
-Melt butter and brown sugar, mix with pretzels. Pat into a greased 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 degrees about 5 minutes. Cool.

8 oz. cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup powdered sugar
8 oz. Cool Whip
-Beat cream cheese until smooth. Mix in powdered sugar and Cool Whip.
-Spread over cooled pretzel crust and top with thickened Jell-O mixture.
-Refrigerate until firm.
