My family and I recently got back from our annual trip back to South Dakota.  We travel back every summer to see family, enjoy some ball games, time on the Missouri river and lots of golf.  Inevitably we always enjoy lots of delicious food, typically at potluck get-togethers and family picnics.  This fantastic jell-o pretzel salad is one of those delicious dishes that’s perfect for any summer meal.

This amazing Peaches & Cream Pretzel Salad is just like the classic strawberry version.  I actually adapted my Cherry Jell-O Pretzel Salad to incorporate fresh summer peaches.  Here’s the simple steps to making this fantastic pretzel salad recipe:

Step 1: Make the Crust

This simple crust is made with just a few simple ingredients, and renders a wonderfully salty-sweet base to this salad.  You’ll start by crushing pretzel sticks, and combining with granulated sugar and melted butter.  Press into the bottom of a 9×13″ pan, and bake for 10 minutes to set.  Cool at room temperature.

Step 2: Make the Cream Cheese Layer

While the crust is cooling, you’ll then create this delicious, fluffy cream cheese layer.  With a hand or stand mixer, you’ll mix together cream cheese, granulated sugar, and thawed whipped topping. Evenly spread the cream cheese mixture over the top of the cooled crust.

Important Note: Make sure to seal the filling all the way to the edges of the pan.  This will create a seal for the jell-o that will go on top later, and also prevent the crust from getting soggy.  Refrigerate the the cream cheese layer for about 30 minutes to set.

Step 3: Add Peaches

I recommend using fresh peaches, however, if fresh peaches aren’t in season, feel free to use frozen or canned peaches.  I really think the flavor of fresh peaches is second to none, and is a wonderful way to this fantastic summer produce.

Step 4: Pour the jell-o over the peaches

Once you’ve placed the peaches over the top of the cream cheese filling, you’ll then top the peaches with the peach jell-o.  Note that in the recipe (below) you’ll begin making this recipe by FIRST boiling the water and dissolving the jell-o mix.  The jell-o will then cool to room temperature, as you are making the other layers of this salad.  If you forget to boil water and make the jell-o, no worries.  Just refrigerate the pan until the jell-o has cooled to room temperature.

Once you’ve added the jell-o to the peaches, refrigerate the salad for at least 1-2 hours or until the jell-o has set completely.

Here’s a quick-reference grocery list of the ingredients you’ll need for this fantastic jell-o pretzel salad:

  • Pretzel sticks
  • Butter
  • Granulated Sugar
  • Cream Cheese
  • Frozen Whipped Topping (like Cool-Whip)
  • Peach Jell-O Mix, (2, 3 oz. packages)
  • Fresh Peaches

Here’s the easy recipe for this fantastic jell-o pretzel salad:

Yields 15 slices

Peaches and Cream Pretzel Salad

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a 9x13" pan, add the pretzels, sugar and melted butter. Stir together to coat, and then evenly press into the bottom of the pan. Bake the crust for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely. While crust is baking, empty jell-o into a bowl, and add boiling water. Stir to disolve. Set jell-o aside to cool to room temperature. 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. (This is important, as you don't wait the jell-o liquid to leak to the bottom of the crust making it soggy.) Refrigerate crust and cream cheese mixture for 30 minutes to set. While crust and filling layers are chilling, slice and pit the fresh cherries and add to the cooled jell-o liquid. When the 30 minutes is up, pour the cherries & jell-o over the cream cheese layer, and chill for at least 1-2 hours or until jell-o is completely set. Garnish with whipped cream and additional pretzels, if desired. Slice into squares and enjoy!
