Strawberry Pretzel Salad

2 cups crushed pretzels
1 ½ sticks butter, melted
¼ cup & ¾ cup sugar
8 ounce container cream cheese
8 ounce container cool whip
6 ounce package strawberry jell-o
2 (10 ounce) packages frozen strawberries (I've also used fresh)

Preheat oven to 350*

Mix pretzels, butter and ¼ cup sugar. Press in bottom of 9 x 13 pan and bake for 10 minutes. Cool completely.

Mix ¾ cup sugar and cream together and fold in cool whip. Spread onto the cooled pretzel crust. Refrigerate until set.

Dissolve jell-o into 2 cups of boiling water and allow to cool slightly. Pour over the cool whip mixture. Add strawberries. Refrigerate until set, at least 4 hours.

****Could also add 1 (8 ounce) can of crushed pineapple with the strawberries.
