No Bake Summer Berry Pretzel Salad is quick and easy dessert recipe for delicious summer treat.


For the crust:

  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter melted
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar
  • 8 oz. (220g) salted pretzels-crushed (about 2 cups of crushed pretzels)

Cream cheese layer:

  • 8 oz. cream cheese-softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 8 oz. Cool Whip thawed in the fridge ( or 3 cups whipped topping )

For gelatin layer:

  • 0.75 oz. (21 g.) unflavored gelatin
  • ½ cup cold water
  • 2 cups lemon-lime flavored clear, soft drink (I used Sprite)
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 2 cups fresh raspberries
  • 3 cups sliced fresh strawberries
  • For the stars you’ll need 1 apple and fresh lemon juice to brush the apple slices


Fruit ratio can be changed and adjust to your own taste. Just use enough fruit to cover the cream cheese filling with thick layer of fruit, almost to the top of dish.
