Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    It helps to set up the gelatin and strawberry mixture by putting it in the freezer for a bit. You don’t want it to set completely, but just a little to make it easier to spread.
  • tip 2
    You can spoon additional whipped topping on top, if desired.
  • tip 3
    Is strawberry not your jam? Try Raspberry Pretzel Salad instead for a slight twist on Strawberry-Pretzel Salad.
  • tip 4
    Cool, fruity and no oven necessary make our recipe for Fluffy Strawberry Pie with Pretzel Crust irresistible. Keep the berry and pretzel flavors coming!
