Ingredients Needed For Raspberry Jello Pretzel Salad:
- Cream cheese
- Cool Whip
- Raspberry Jell-O
- Boiling water
- Frozen or fresh raspberries
How To Make Raspberry Jello Pretzel Salad:
Begin by combining the broken pretzels, melted margarine, and 3 tablespoons of sugar in a medium mixing bowl. Stir everything together until the ingredients are well combined.
Then, in your 9×13 inch baking pan, spread out the pretzel mixture and press it into the bottom of the pan to form the bottom crust.
Next, bake it at 350 degrees for 7 minutes.
After it is done baking, allow the crust to cool completely.
In another medium mixing bowl, beat together 1 cup of sugar and the package of cream cheese until they are completely smooth.
Then, fold the cool whip into the cream cheese mixture.
Once that is done and the crust is completely cooled, spread the cream cheese and cool whip mix over top of the pretzel layer.
Bring the water to a boil. Once the water is boiling, mix in the raspberry jello mix until the jello is dissolved.
Then, mix in either the frozen or fresh raspberries and allow it to cool and set slightly.
After the jello mixture has cooled pour it over top of the cream cheese layer.
Now, pop the pan into the refrigerator and allow it to firm up the rest of the way before serving.
Once it is firm, slice it, serve it, and enjoy it!
