Raspberry Pretzel Jello Salad (gluten free)

We were suppose to go to a church picnic Wednesday night but apparently I brought the rain with me to Las Vegas, so it was cancelled. Anyway, I wanted to make an extra yummy dish to bring and this was my first choice. I don’t know whether to call it a salad or a dessert? Such a dilemma! It seems more dessert-ish to me but since it’s so good it doesn’t really matter. The family wasn’t sad they didn’t have to share. They ate the whole thing in about 24 hours.

I used gluten free pretzels to make the dish gluten free so I could eat it. My family thinks gluten free pretzels taste better than regular pretzels anyway. Give them a try, I think they’re much better.

2 cups crushed pretzels
1/2 cup melted butter
1/4 cup sugar & 1 cup sugar
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
8 oz. carton Cool Whip
6 oz. raspberry jello
2 cups boiling water
2 pkgs. frozen raspberries
