Next, blend together 1 cup of sugar with the cream cheese. Fold in whipped topping. Spread evenly over the cooled pretzel crust and place in refrigerator to firm up while you prepare the next layer.

Mix the package of Jello with 2 cups boiling water and stir until jello is dissolved. Mix in thawed strawberries, along with their juice, and stir to combine. Place in refrigerator and chill until mixture is beginning to set up. Pour strawberry mixture over the cream cheese mixture. Cover with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator to set for several hours or even overnight.

Serving

Once the Jello layer is set, cut Strawberry Pretzel Salad into desired serving portions and serve. You can place an extra dollop of Cool Whip on top if you'd like.
