Pretzel Jello Salad

(not my pic...image found here)
While I was home, my family was talking about food and how if you had to choose one meal/food item to eat for the rest of your life.... what would it be
This recipe was my brother's answer! (yes the same brother who at a whole raspberry pie) love him!

but seriously..... it is that good. I maybe would have to consider it as well

So here is my mother's delicious Pretzel Jello recipe...
 believe me, you need to have it!

2 cup crushed pretzels  ( I put in blender or food processor) 
Reserve a few pretzel crumbs for top.
1/2 cup melted butter
2 Tablespoons sugar

Mix and press into 9 x 13 pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10 min.

small tub cool whip
8 ounces cream cheese (softened)
1 cup sugar

Beat well add to cooled bottom crust.

Refrigerate until set.

2 large packages of Strawberry Jello
3 1/2 cups boiling water
2 boxes of strawberries   ( I usually use frozen so Jello will set faster)

Mix and let set until ALMOST jelled.  Top other layers.

Optional:  I top the jello layer with another layer of cool whip (small tub)
       and sprinkle reserved pretzel crumbs on top.

Let me know what you think!!

Oh and what would you eat if you could only have one meal for the rest of your life???

can my answer be Mexican food?? :)
