    This is the third time I've made this recipe. My family and guests love it, and it's so easy. I have a question though. Is there any way to freeze it?

    Reviews were mixed on this pie. My 20 something daughter really liked it. I thought the pie filling had too much fake strawberry flavor from the Jell-o. If I make it again I would use a lot more fresh strawberries (and possibly try to figure out how to make it with plain gelatin and strawberry puree). I did not use the marshmallow whip and was glad I omitted it (it was plenty sweet with the Jell-o and the sweetened condensed milk) The pretzel crust was delicious and I will use it for other recipes. I added a approximately one tablespoon of frozen lemonade to the fresh whipped cream for the topping and it was fantastic! Since I made this for the 4th of July, I added blueberries as topping.

    Family enjoyed the pie. I pipped the whipped topping for a pretty presentation. I will not make this recipe again as written, I had no idea what to do with a little leftover condensed milk and whipped cream cheese (They are NOT a pantry staple in my house, only get for specific recipes.) I would like to make again without the fluff, use regular brick of cream cheese and whole can of condensed milk to see if has same family appeal.

    This recipe sounds absolutely delicious!!! I’ve seen other strawberry pretzel renditions but not to this caliber! Way to kick it up a notch! I’m so excited to try this for my family bbq next weekend! Oh and it is a desert so I’m glad it will be sweet, and processed foods are a part of life so get over it, and hull or chop or slice etc. it’s gonna be okay critics!!! No need to hurt someone’s feelings after putting up a beloved recipe. Geeez!

    Far too sweet, and too many processed ingredients. I'm so sorry.

    Shouldn't you hull ALL of the strawberrie, both topping AND chopped?
