Strawberry Pretzel Dessert

Happy Friday to you all! Yay for the weekend being here 🙂 Seems like weekends are so short anymore, I would like to start planning meals ahead of time and prepare as much as I can in advance so I don’t have to be in the kitchen all weekend when my hubby is home… Sigh, maybe eventually I will get it accomplished.

But anyway, today I am sharing an absolutely delicious recipe with you, I know strawberries are past for this year, but you can use frozen berries, fresh from Walmart, Kroger, etc… Trust me, it will be worth buying them to make this if you don’t have any in the freezer.

  1. Yumm-o this looks good! My mom used to make some sort of strawberry pretzel pie or something and it was so good.
    What a good idea to do meal prep before the weekend! I probably wouldn’t be on top of things enough either to do that, but it’s a super good idea! I always think it’s unfair that I still have to do all this cooking while he’s off on the weekend 🙂
