Separate dishes are also an option, such as these from
Mix together the butter and 3 Tbsp sugar and put aside.
Place your crushed pretzels in the bottom of a 13 X 9 pan.
Pour this mixture over the crushed pretzels.
Press this mixture into the bottom of the pan and bake at 400 degrees for 8 minutes.
Set the Strawberry Pretzel dish aside and allow it  to cool.
Blend the cream cheese with 1 cup sugar and fold in the whipped topping.
Spread this mixture over your cooled crust.  When spreading this mixture into the pan, be sure  to cover entire crust, especially the edges.
Prepare the strawberry jell-o with 2 cups boiling water.
Add the frozen strawberries to the jello and carefully pour this over the cream cheese mixture.
Refrigerate this dish and feel free to serve it when the jello has completely set up.
This is definitely a Strawberry Lover’s Recipe that is great for any occasion.  You can make a few of these if you are having a large get together or make one and surprise your family.  This can even be made year round since the Strawberry Pretzel Salad recipe calls for frozen strawberries instead of fresh ones.  ENJOY!!!
