Ingredients

2 c
pineapple juice
6 oz
strawberry jell-o gelatin
2 pkg
(10 oz each) frozen sliced strawberries, thawed
1 c

Melt butter in 400°F. oven in 9X13" pan. Mix broken (or crushed) pretzels in melted butter, spread to cover pan bottom, and bake 10 minutes. Cool.

Mix together cream cheese and powdered sugar. Spread over cooled pretzels.
