Pineapple Pretzel Salad

Cassie *


My aunt always made this delicious, light dessert...the pretzels are just the right saltiness to the sweetness of the whipped cream and pineapple...There are two ways you can serve this...either add the candied pretzels, or if you won't be serving for some time...stir them in right before serving...I usually add a sprinkle or two of pretzels on top when serving too...another simple treat, that everyone seems to love...

How to Make Pineapple Pretzel Salad


  1. Combine the crushed pretzels, melted butter, and sugar. Stir together until thoroughly mixed..

    Spread the pretzel mixture out on a small cookie sheet that has sides. Place in an oven preheated to 425 degree F and bake for 5 - 6 minutes. Remove and allow pretzels to cool.
  2. Combine the cream cheese and sugar together in a mixing bowl and beat until the sugar is well mixed into the cream cheese.

    Add the whipped topping and pineapple. Beat just until they are mixed in evenly. Store in the refrigerator.
  3. Add the crushed pretzel mixture to the cream cheese mixture just before serving.
  4. I sprinkle a few pretzels on top right before serving...yum!
