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.

Raspberry Pretzel Jello Dessert
- 2 cups crushed pretzels
- 3 Tablespoons light brown sugar
- ¾ cup butter , melted
- 6 ounce box raspberry jello
- 2 cups water
- 4 cups frozen raspberries* (about 2 cups)
- 8 ounces cream cheese
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1 1/4 cups heavy whipping cream
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Add crushed pretzels, light brown sugar and melted butter to a mixing bowl and stir to combine.
- Press firmly into a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish and bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.
- Meanwhile, beat the cream cheese and powdered sugar together until creamy. Add the whipping cream and beat until cream has stiffened into soft peaks.
- Spread the mixture over the top of the pretzel crust, spreading it all the way to edges of the pan on all sides (so the jello wont seep through).
- Boil 2 cups water. Add jello and stir until dissolved. Remove from heat and stir in frozen berries. Set aside to cool to room temperature, then pour into dish and refrigerate for 2-4 hours, until jello has set.
