Indulging in a delightful dessert that combines sweet, salty, and creamy flavors is a true delight for the taste buds.

When it comes to striking that perfect balance, few desserts can rival the irresistible charm of a classic strawberry pretzel salad without jello.

Pretzel Layer – Salted pretzels – Butter – Granulated sugar


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. then crush the pretzels. You can either pulse several times in a food processor or place them in a ziploc bag and use a rolling pin.


In a medium saucepan, melt the butter and add the 1/4 cup sugar. Stir until combined, then mix in the crushed pretzels. Press the pretzel crust evenly into a 9×13 inch casserole dish.


Bake for 10 minutes, then remove and set aside to cool.


In a large bowl with an electric hand mixer, beat the cream cheese and powdered sugar together until smooth. Add the whipped topping last and beat until smooth.
