One of the fun things about spring and summer is all the cook outs and family get togethers with all those delicious recipes. One of my favorite recipes of the summer is this PRETZEL SALAD recipe from my daughter-in-law. This cool treat is so easy to make and absolutely delicious! Never any leftovers with this family favorite.

1 cup white sugar
1 (8 ounce) carton frozen whipped topping, thawed
2 (3 ounce) packages strawberry gelatin

Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Stir together crushed pretzels, melted butter and 3T white sugar; mix well and press mixture into bottom of 9x13-inch baking dish.
Bake 8-10 minutes, until set; set aside to cool.
In a large mixing bowl cream together cream cheese and white sugar.

Spread mixture onto cooled crust.
