Cassie's Story

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.


Enjoy!

Ingredients

2 c
crushed pretzels
3 tsp
plus 3/4 cup sugar, divided
3/4 c
butter, melted
2 pkg
(3 ounces each) orange gelatin
2 c
boiling water
2 can(s)
(8 ounces each) crushed pineapple, drained
1 can(s)
( 11 ounces) mandarin oranges, drained
1
(8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
2 c
whipped topping, thawed
additional whipped topping, optional

Directions Step-By-Step
