How do you make a Raspberry Pretzel Salad?

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bring 2 cups of water to a boil and whisk in raspberry jello. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.

     

  • In a mixing bowl, combine crushed pretzels, sugar, and melted butter. Press into a lightly greased 9×13 pan. Bake for 8 minutes and remove from oven. Let cool completely.

     

  • Beat the cream cheese and sugar together until creamy. Fold in the cool whip. Spread the mixture over the top of the pretzel crust completely to the edges so the jello won’t leak through.

     

  • Pour the jello over the cream cheese layer and refrigerate for 2-3 hours before serving!
  • Can you make Raspberry Pretzel Salad ahead of time?

    Yes! This is a great salad that can be made the night before and kept refrigerated until ready to eat.

    What kind of pretzels are best for a Pretzel Salad?

    Use small, salted pretzels (either sticks or traditional pretzel twists). Salted hard pretzels add the salty element which is surprising but so good. Smaller pretzels are easier to crush and measure. You will measure 2 1/2 cups pretzels crushed. Use a blender or food processor to crush the pretzels.

    What can you use instead of pretzels?

    • Bischoff cookies
    • Graham crackers
    • Vanilla wafers
    • Nuts: almonds, cashew, pecans, or walnuts (crushed)

    Do you follow the Jell-o package instructions?

    No, bring 2 cups of water to a boil and whisk in raspberry jello. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. Leave at room temperature and do not refrigerate.

     

     

    Can you use other fruit instead of Raspberries?

    Yes! Substitute fresh or frozen fruit for raspberries and fruit jello for the raspberry jello.

    Can you substitute the cool whip for whip cream?

    Cool whip is the best and most recommended whip for this recipe. It sets up well and lays on the pretzel crust without making the pretzel crust soft or mushy like the whipping cream does.
