Many Utah families are fans of the strawberry pretzel salad. But at this time of year, we’re throwing peaches into the mix! This fruit mixed with cream and pretzels will be your new favorite summer treat.

Peaches and Cream Pretzel Salad

Ingredients

Crust Layer

  • 2 cups pretzels, crushed
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons sugar

Cream Cheese Layer

  • 8 ounces softened cream cheese
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 8 ounces frozen whipped topping, thawed

Jello Layer

  • 2 (3 ounce) packages of Peach Jello
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 2 cups sliced peaches

Instructions

    1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. To a bowl, add the pretzels, sugar and melted butter. Stir together to coat, and then evenly press into the bottom of a greased 9×13 pan. Bake the crust for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely.
    2. While crust is baking, empty jell-o mix into a bowl, and add boiling water. Stir to dissolve. Set jell-o aside to cool to room temperature.
    3. With a hand or stand mixer, cream together the cream cheese and sugar until fluffy and smooth. Gradually add in the whipping topping and mix until completely combined. Spread mixture evenly over the cooled crust, making sure filling is sealed to the sides of the pan.
    4. Refrigerate crust and cream cheese mixture for 30 minutes to set.
    5. While crust and filling layers are chilling, slice and peel the fresh peaches.
    6. Once the cream cheese layer is cool, add the peach slices. Pour the room temperature jell-o over the peaches. Chill for at least 1-2 hours or until jell-o is completely set.
    7. Top with whipped cream and additional pretzels, if desired. Slice into squares and enjoy!

Notes

You can use fresh or drained canned peaches depending on the season!
