How do you store this strawberry dessert?

You’re going to want to keep this pretzel dessert stored in the fridge. It needs to be kept cool because of the ingredients added.

Will the pretzel crust turn soggy?

Not right away, but when it sits for a little bit of time, it will. It won’t affect the flavor at all but the texture is going to be a bit different. If you want a bit of crunch on your dessert, you can always break up some more pretzels and add them on top.

So lets talk about how you make the Strawberry Pretzel Dessert Cups. You’ll begin with a medium mixing bowl:

In a medium mixing bowl and combine chopped strawberries and 1 Tbsp sugar. Mix well until coated. Set aside.

Add pretzels to the bowl of a food processor and blend until you have pretzel crumbs. In a medium bowl combine pretzel crumbs, melted butter and 1 Tbsp sugar. Mix with a fork until pretzel crumbs are moist. Set aside.

Combine cream cheese, 1/4 cup sugar and vanilla in a medium mixing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until your mixture is creamy. Add whipped topping and mix until combined.

Add 2 Tbsp pretzel mixture to each cup and press down on mixture with your fingers to create a crust. Add the cream cheese filling, dividing evenly between the 8 servings (reserve a little to dollop on top of each cup). Divide strawberries into 8 portions and spoon over each serving.

Add dollop of remaining mixture to each cup (if reserved).

And there you have it. Top each dollop of cream cheese mixture with a strawberry and you have finished your Strawberry Pretzel Dessert Cups. These would be fun to serve at a dinner party or a summer picnic.
