Pretzel Berry Dessert

This is FishPapa’s all-time Fave come holiday time. The man who “doesn’t like sweets” claims he could eat the whole pan. I guess we do have a dessert to arm wrestle over. You can make this with strawberries and strawberry jello, but we prefer it with raspberries and cranberry or raspberry jello. What’s your favorite […]
