Strawberry Jell-O Salad


The Baked Sunday Morning Challenge has come around again and I wasn't going to miss this one. I remember a slice my Nana used to make like this only the base I'm pretty sure was a sweet biscuit mixture, not salty pretzels!!

First you need to make your jelly following the packet directions, add chopped strawberries and refrigerate until semi-set (mine took about 1 1/2 hours). Now I had diet jelly in the cupboard so I just used that, (bonus points! no sugar) and for the base I chucked a few handfuls of sweet chili and sour cream pretzels in for a surprise.

So the base contained crushed pretzels, brown sugar and melted butter, spread in a lined tin and baked to set, (it smelt unbelievable coming out of the oven). The filling contained cream cheese, sugar and whipped cream folded together and spread over the cool base, followed by the jelly.

Once set in the fridge, (I allowed 5hrs) we all dug in!!

I enjoyed making and eating this slice, next time I'd recommend adding a bit of gelatin to the filling and maybe try a different flavour of jelly. Can't wait to see how the rest of the team went. If you'd like the recipe for Strawberry Jell-O Salad visit Baked Sunday Mornings.
