Ingredients

Preheat your oven to 400°F. Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish and set it aside.

Mix melted butter, crushed pretzels, and 3 tablespoons of Stevia (or sugar) in a medium bowl. Press this mixture into the baking dish to make a crust.

Use a hand mixer or stand mixer to blend cream cheese and ¾ cup of Stevia until smooth. Add whipped topping and mix until smooth.

Spread this cream cheese mixture over the pretzel crust and chill it in the fridge for 30-60 minutes.

Boil water in a saucepan, then turn off the heat and mix in gelatin. Let it cool for 10 minutes.

Pour this strawberry mixture over the cream cheese layer and refrigerate for 6-8 hours until firm.
