Strawberry Pretzel Jell-O
This fruity, refreshing strawberry pretzel jell-o is the perfect springtime dessert. Layered with a crunchy, sweet pretzel crust, followed by a sweet whipped cream layer, and topped with a delicous strawberry pineapple topping. This one is a great addition to any pot luck and is a favorite of David Bundy here at USA Pan!
