anyone make strawberry pretzel dessert?

You know the dessert with the crushed pretzels for crust, cream cheese middle & strawberry jello top? The pretzel crust is supposed to be crunchy & the strawberry jello is supposed to stay on top. Well I made it for Easter & the strawberry jello sank to the bottom & made the pretzel crust soggy icon_cry.gificon_cry.gificon_cry.gificon_cry.gif
Any ideas on how to prevent this?

Did you bake the crust before adding the balance? My recipe calls for baking the pretzel crust for 10 minutes at 350* and cool before adding the balance.

I've made that salad/desert many times and never had the jello go to the bottom. I just looked at my recipe and it doesn't have you cool the jello/strawberry mixture before adding to the top of the dish. So I guess I'm no help either. Sorry.

I cooled the pretzel crust, but not the strawberry/jello mixture. This is only the second time I've made it & the first time it turned out great. It's so delicious because the pretzel crust is salty & crunch & is so delicous with the cream cheese layer & the jello layer. Don't know what happned this time!!

I just noticed the second recipe I have calls for the jello to be refrig. a little. I will probably try that next time.
