Strawberry Pretzel Salad

3 cups crushed pretzels
1 1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 sticks butter
1 8oz pkg cream cheese
1 envelope dreamwhip
2 3oz pkg strawberry jello
3 cups hot water
2 10oz frozen strawberries

Mix the crushed pretzels, 1/4 cup sugar and butter. Place in a 9x13 pan and bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes. Let cool.
Soften the cream cheese and mix with 1 cup sugar, and 1 envelope of dreamwhip. Make sure it is soft enough to spread, and spread over the cooled pretzel layer.
Warm 3 cups of water, and mix the 2 jello mixes in until blended. Add the frozen strawberries with juices. Let harden a little bit in the bowl in the fridge before pouring overtop of the cream cheese mixture.

This is a wonderfully delicious salad, unless of course you don't like Pretzels :)

Just a word of advice though if you are going to make this. Make sure you let it harden in the pan overnight to give it enough time. And make sure you are going to eat most of it the next day. If not just make a smaller pan because it doesn't store well. Once you start eating it the pretzels will soften if it sits in the fridge another day after that. And then, quite frankly it's no good anymore. I mean, who likes mushy pretzels?! :)
