How to Make Pineapple Pretzel Salad

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine the cream cheese and confectioner's sugar, almond extract and vanilla in a mixing bowl and blend well. Fold in the whipped topping and drained pineaple until evenly mixed. Refrigerate.
  2. Combine the crushed pretzels, melted butter, and sugar. Stir until evenly coated. Place in oven that has been preheated to 425 degrees and bake for 5 minutes. Remove and allow mixture to cool.
  3. Add the pretzels to the cream cheese mixture just prior to serving. The pretzels will get soggy if they are mixed in the salad for a long time. Still tastes yummy, just not crunchy.
