Yummy Raspberry Jell-O Pretzel Cheesecake

Red & white pudding dessert cake


So my mom whipped this up for Christmas dinner, and oh my goodness, it’s a keeper! I knew I needed to post it here on the blog. You wouldn’t think that Pretzels & Jello would go very well together… but once you take a bite your tastebuds will prove otherwise! Delicious!


So here’s the recipe! The original recipe calls it a “salad” which I thought was really funny. I’m gonna have to say that this might even rival Heaven-in-a-pan for me. (If calling it a salad makes you feel better about eating it, you can go ahead and keep the original title, haha)  🙂


Hope you enjoy it!
