This is a really good dessert. The combo of sweet, crunchy, and slightly salty is super good. It is very popular here in the Mississippi Valley. Plan ahead, it needs to refrigerate for 4 hours.

I made this recipe for a holiday potluck at work. I never ate pretzel salad before, so I decided to make it the day prior for the family. Everyone at home loved it. So, I made the next batch for the potluck and it was a HIT! Everyone at work was asking for the recipe. Even those who said they hated strawberries liked this recipe. I used an entire 8 oz. tub of whipped topping. Also, when making the jello, I dissolved the jello in 1/2 c. boiling water. Then, I added 1 c. of iced water to the jello and then stirred the jello until the ice melted. It was the perfect temperature to immediately top and refrigerate. Also, it cut the four hour refrigeration down to about 2 hours. Thanks for this delicious recipe!!!

I didn't wait long enough for the jello to cool and set. I waited about 10 minutes. If I made this again I'd try waiting 30 minutes at least. Also using twice or triple the amount of cool whip.

I made this for the senior center and it was a winner. Easy to make and tastes wonderful. Let gelatin mixture thicken 30 mins in refrigerator before pouring on filling layer.
