Strawberry Pretzel Dessert

This is one of my husband's favorite desserts and one that I almost forgot to make this year. There is something about the salty pretzels, cream, and strawberries that combine in a dessert that really is good. The layers take a bit longer then some recipes but it isn't difficult.

Crust:
2 c. crushed pretzels
3/4 c. melted butter
3 tbsp. sugar

Mix. Press into a 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

Filling:
8 oz. cream cheese, room temp.
1/2 c. powdered sugar
8 oz. Cool Whip (or one cup of whipping cream beaten with a little sugar)
2 cup mini marshmallows

Cream sugar and cream cheese. Fold in Cool Whip or whipped cream. Add marshmallows and spread on cooled crust.

Topping:
1 (6 oz.) box strawberry gelatin (or 2/3 cup)
2 1/2 c. boiling water
1 quart chopped strawberries

Dissolve gelatin in water. Chill until slightly thickened. Stir in strawberries. Pour over cream cheese layer. Chill for several hours before serving.
