REVIEW: recipe rating
The pretzel layer is definitely too thin. Double it and you'll be happier with this recipe. Otherwise, it's just what I remember from growing up in Wisconsin.

The pretzel layer isn't supposed to really be a "crust" as you would think of it. It covers the bottom of the pan sparsely. We like the pretzel layer, so I put in 3 cups of pretzel, increase the butter to 1 cup and the sugar in the crust to 4 Tablespoons. If you leave the jello a little hot before you pour it, it will soak into the other layers, which is really good. It's good the other way, too. We like it when the layers mix a little. This is a great, quick pretty side dish that I have never seen anyone turn down.

One of the women in the Bible Study group brought this dish, it was a big hit. Every one asked for the recipe to be e-mailed to them. I did increase the jello when I made it for my family.

COMMENT:
This is a great recipe however, some things need to be changed. First, you need to double the pretzel mix. The amount given does not cover the bottom of a 9 X 13 pan. Second, use two cups of boiling water or double the jello. Again this amount does not cover a 9 x 13 pan. Third, DO NOT let the jello sit for an hour. Literally within minutes it is two thick to use. I had to go to the store 2 additional times to get more jello and re-do this step.

REVIEW: recipe rating
I thought the easy of this recipe was great, however I agree with previous comment not enough jello to spread. I will make again, maybe when i add the strawberries will add 1/2 cup cold water to mix to soft set before spreading over cream cheese mixture

Family favorite at holiday times. Pretzels taste like nuts. I layer mine in a compote bowl and it looks beautiful.

I made this recipe for Thanksgiving this year. Of 8 other salads, mine was the only one without leftovers. Even the kids loved it. Being a diabetic, I used Splenda instead of sugar. I also 2 cups boiling water for the jello. It made just the right amount. It was a WINNER

The recipe is great but there's something not right about the jello measurements. There's not enought jello to cover the masterpiece.
