I used raspberry jello and frozen raspberries. Everyone, my father, my husband, children and grandchildren loved it.

It was just weird...with the cream cheese and pretzels. I had extra jello with strawberries and my family had no problem eating that. Next time I'll save the trouble of making the 1st and 2nd layers and just serve the top with cottage cheese.

I made this recipe a couple days ago. I added some crushed pecans into the pretzel shell. I used fresh strawberries instead of frozen. It came out beautifully and tasted awesome. Thanks for a great recipe.
