Cassie's notes for this recipe:
This Jello dessert is one of my personal favorites, and always gets great reviews when anyone tries it.

I actually prefer this over the Strawberry pretzel salad.

The recipe is another from my Taste of Home - Aug/Sept 2007 magazine..been tested and approved by my friends and family.

In a small bowl, combine pretzels and 3 teaspoons sugar; stir in butter. Press into an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish.

Bake at 350° for 10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
In a large bowl, dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Add pineapple and oranges. Chill until partially set, about 30 minutes.
In a small bowl, beat cream cheese and remaining sugar until smooth. Fold in whipped topping. Spread over crust. Gently spoon gelatin mixture over cream cheese layer.

Cover and refrigerate for 2-4 hours or until firm.
Cut into squares. Garnish with additional whipped topping if desired.
