Jello*Pretzel*Cream Cheese Bars

One of my best friends mom's makes this...and I haven't had it in like 6 years...but I remember how heavenly it is...oh yes-the flavors are so perfect together! So I was on Pinterest and found a recipe for it, and it flooded my mind with divine memories.

Jello Pretzel Salad

2 1/2 cups crushed pretzels
3 TBS brown sugar
3/4 cup butter
1 (6 oz) pkg of Strawberry Jello (I suppose any flavor would work.... I haven't tried it though!)
10 oz frozen strawberries or 16 oz fresh-Crushed or sliced
1 (8oz) pkg cream cheese
1 cup sugar
8 oz cool whip

Combine pretzels, brown sugar, and melted butter and press into a greased 9 X 13 pan. You can use more butter if the crust isn't sticking together. Bake @ 350 for 10 minutes.

Make jello according to directions and add the strawberries. Refrigerate until partially set. *If it is not set enough it will leak through your cream cheese layer and make your pretzels soggy.

Beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Blend in cool whip. Spread over cooled crust and make sure you spread completely to the edges to create a seal so your jello doesn't leak through. Pour jello over cream cheese layer. Refrigerate.
