Raspberry Pretzel Bars are one of my favorite things on earth.  How can you beat a buttery, pretzel-y crust, smothered in a scrumptious cream cheese center, and topped with raspberries and raspberry Jell-O?  You really can’t.  Plus, it’s red and white, which makes it very appropriate for 4th of July and patriotic festivities!

I’m really sentimental about this recipe.  One of my closest friends gave me this recipe, and it’s one that she often brought over (that I begged her to make) to our BBQs and picnics. I miss her like crazy, and I love thinking of her every time I make this.

These are REALLY easy to make, but it’s a process.  Each layer needs to be refrigerated before adding the next layer, so you want to think about making this at least a day in advance.  You could start it the night before, and do the crust and even the cream cheese layer, then Jello the next day…whatever works with your schedule! The total time is around 5-6 hours of refrigeration (at least that’s what it usually us for me).  It’s SO worth it.  Each layer is super quick to put together, so it really is just the wait time involved.

This is a perfect summertime dessert!

If haven’t had a whole lot of Jell-O, this is the place to start.  ☺

  1. Kierste,

    My mom makes a recipe just like this. I love the taste of the salty pretzels on the bottom. It’s a unique combo, but so good! My mom always calls this desert Pretzel Surprise, though I always thought that took away the element of the surprise. HAHA. Love this!

  2. I’ve made “Pretzel Salad” for years. We use strawberry jello and frozen strawberries. I have also made it with fresh blackberries and black cherry jello (could not find blackberry jello). YUMMY to the TUMMY stuff! Can’t wait to try it with raspberries!

      1. My husband woud LOVE with raspberries…we’ve always used strawberries : )
        Your site is adorable and we can relate to the big fam! Just had my fifth last fall – at age 39, now 40 – whew! …so diff than at age 25 but I’m loving every minute. Have a great week, and good luck with the move I read about – we’re in the process of moving too!!

        1. That’s so funny–I’ve never used strawberries, only raspberries!! :) I think I need to try them!!! It definitely sounds like we have a lot in common, and I’m so glad you dropped by! Good luck with your move too!!! xoxo
