Strawberry Pretzel Dessert Recipe

How to Make this Strawberry Pretzel Dessert Recipe is a little time consuming, but well worth the effort!  It’s three layers of sweet and salty goodness.  A pretzel crust, cream cheese filling and topped with strawberry jell-o.  The nice thing about this recipe is that you can drop the calories by using sugar free jell-o and fat free cool whip and cream cheese.  I’ve yet to meet a person that doesn’t like it.
