I don’t know about you, but in my house we love strawberry pretzel salad! We make it at almost every holiday gathering that we have. AND, we typically make two since it goes so fast.

I wanted to create some individual dessert cups with them so that they were easy to serve. This would be for a Mother’s Day treat. There is something about desserts being individualized that makes them a little bit more special.

Here’s what you need to make your own Strawberry Pretzel Dessert Cups for your next gathering:

  • 4 cups chopped fresh strawberries
  • 4 cups pretzels
  • ¼ cup melted butter
  • 8 oz softened cream cheese
  • ½ cup + 2 T. granulated sugar, divided
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 8 oz. whipped topping

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.
