¼ cup sugar
½ cup butter, melted
1 pkg (8 oz) cream cheese
1 pkg (8 oz) cool whip
¼ cup sugar
1 pkg (6 oz) Strawberry Jello
2 cups boiling water
1 ½ cups cold water

1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 9 x 13-inch baking dish with parchment paper.
2. Mix crushed pretzels with sugar and butter. Press mixture evenly into prepared baking dish. Press with the back of a spoon or measuring cup. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes. Let cool.
3. With an electric mixer beat together cream cheese, cool whip and sugar until well combined and smooth. Spread mixture evenly over cooled pretzel base. Refrigerate while you make the top layer.
