Raspberry Pretzel Jello Salad

I always serve this with dinner as a Jello salad, but it can also be a dessert on it's own!  It is especially delicious (as Nacho would say!!:))!!  I must hear that line or some other one from Nacho from my hubby or kids no less than 30 times a day!!  And whenever I try I always get made fun of because I have a terrible accent!  Anyway, that has nothing to do with this recipe...I just got carried away!:)  Just trust me...YUM!

Raspberry Pretzel Jello Salad
1 1/2 cups crushed pretzels
1/2 cup sugar
1 cube butter, melted
1 cube cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 tub (8 oz.) cool whip
1 large box (6 oz.) Raspberry Jello
2 cups boiling water
1 bag unsweetened frozen raspberries

Pretzel Crust:
Mix and press the pretzels, 1/2 cup sugar, and melted butter into the bottom of a 9X13 pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes.  Let cool

Cream Center:
Blend together the cream cheese and 1/2 cup sugar.  Add and mix in the cool whip.  Spread over the cooled pretzel crust and then refrigerate until cooled.

Jello top:
Dissolve the Jello in the boiling water.  Add the raspberries and stir.  Pour over the cream center and refrigerate until set.  Usually 4-6 hours. 

Enjoy a yummy side or a yummy dessert!!:)

My Grandma used to always make this. It is so good I make it for all the special things. Anytime I ask anyone if they have ever had pretzel salad they look at me strange when I tell them what it is.
