This recipe is from an email that I receive each month. I used to make it with graham cracker crust, but the pretzel crust is so good. I love the sweet and salty taste. This is great to take with you to a pot luck dinner or other functions.

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Combine pretzels, margarine and sugar for first layer. Put first layer in 9 x 13 pan. Bake for 8 minutes. Remove to cool. For the second layer beat sugar into cheese, fold in whipped topping. Spread over cooled pretzels. Third layer is made by mixing Jello with boiling water. Stir to dissolve.

    I have also made this with graham cracker crust, if you don't like pretzels or you are watching your salt intake. The sweet and salty is very good though.
