Raspberry Pretzel Jello Dessert – a favorite potluck and party dessert with layers of sweet and salt pretzel crust, whipped sweet cream cheese filling and raspberry jello topping! It’s always a crowd pleaser!
Happy Friday guys! I’m so excited to spend Easter weekend with my family. We’re hosting Easter dinner with some friends and my mind is reeling with dessert ideas for dinner. This Raspberry Pretzel Jello Dessert may be this year’s winner. Other desserts in the running include:
This is one of those recipes that you could probably get from your grandmother. It’s a classic! One thing that really sets this recipe apart from all the others is it uses real whipped cream instead of cool whip. I’ve never been a big fan of cool whip–it’s kind of artificial tasting.
The whipped cream folded into the sweetened cream cheese mixture makes all of the difference. Layered over a yummy sweet and salty pretzel crust, with raspberry jello topping. An absolutely delicious dessert for a crowd.
