Peach Pretzel Jello Salad
Peach Pretzel Jello Salad is a delicious jello salad filled with sugar cinnamon pretzels, a sweet cream cheese filling and topped with jello and juicy peaches. It's the perfect sweet treat.
- 6 ounces peach jello
- 2 cups boiling water
- 2 1/2 cups mini twist pretzels, before crushed
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 8 TBSP butter melted
- 8 ounce cream cheese softened
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 8 ounce Cool Whip thawed
- 2 1/2 cups fresh peaches, sliced thinly (about 1/4 inch thick)
Pre-heat oven to 350°F. Combine peach Jello with 2 cups boiling water and stir until completely dissolved. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
Crush pretzels either in a ziploc bag, or pulse them a few times in a food processor until they are in tiny pieces ( not crumbs). Add melted butter, cinnamon and sugar and stir till fully combined. Transfer pretzel mixture a 13 x 9 in glass casserole dish, pressing the pretzel mixture evenly over the bottom of the dish. Bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Allow to cool completely
Beat together cream cheese and sugar until fluffy and white. Fold in Cool Whip until fully incorporated. Spread mixture over pretzels and go all the way to the edges of the dish to create a seal. This will help prevent the jello mixture leaking into the pretzels.
Pour your cooled jello mixture on top of cream cheese layer. Carefully place your sliced peaches on top. Refrigerate until jello is set ( roughly 2 - 4 hours)
