This picture does not do this recipe justice and I will be making it again just to be able to take a picture! This is SO good. This is the type of picture you get when you're like "hurry and take a picture before everyone eats it and it's gone." I mean this is SOOOOOO good. If you have ever eaten strawberry pretzel jello, it's a lot like it, except that it doesn't have the jello in it. Personally, the jello part is my least favorite part of the recipe, so this recipe is perfect (no jello at all!).
1 cup crushed pretzels
½ cup chopped pecans
¾ cup brown sugar
¾ cup butter, melted
2 cups diced strawberries
8 oz cream cheese, softened
½ cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla
8 oz whipped topping
Mix together crushed pretzels, chopped pecans, brown sugar and melted butter.
Spread on a large baking sheet, and bake at 400 degrees for 7 minutes. Allow the mixture to cool and then break it into small pieces. (Then resist the temptation to eat this pretzel mixture on its own. It's delicious!)
Beat together softened cream cheese, granulated sugar and vanilla. Fold in whipped topping.
Before serving, stir the diced strawberries and sugared pretzels and pecans into the cream cheese mixture.
