Strawberry Pretzel Jello

This jello recipe is a Gartner Family favorite.

Layer 1
1- 6 oz box of strawberry jello
2 cups boiling water
16 to 20 oz. of frozen sliced strawberries (sweeten or unsweeten)
Layer 2
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
8 oz. Cool Whip
1/2 powdered sugar
Layer 3
1 1/2 cups crushed pretzels
3/4 cup melted butter
1/2 cup sugar

Mix strawberry jello and boiling water together, add sliced frozen strawberries.  Refrigerate overnight or until firm.  Next make the cream cheese mixture... make sure cream cheese is soft or it will be lumpy.  If this happens it is fine but doesn't look as good.  Refrigerate again.  I usually make the pretzel topping 3 hours before we are going to eat it.  That way the pretzels are crunchy.
