In a bowl, combine the pretzels, butter and sugar. Press into an ungreased 13×9-in. baking dish. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.

For filling, in a small bowl, beat whipped topping, cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Spread over pretzel crust. Refrigerate until chilled.

For topping, dissolve gelatin in boiling water in a large bowl. Stir in strawberries with syrup; chill until partially set. Carefully spoon over filling.

Chill until firm, 4-6 hours. Cut into squares; serve with additional whipped topping and pretzels if desired.

Test Kitchen tips
Nobody likes gelatin that wanders.Using an offset spatula or the back of a spoon, spread cream cheese all the way to the crust’s edges so the gelatin stays put.
