This Strawberry Delight Recipe is very much similar to any no bake cheesecake recipe but addition of strawberry jelly layer at the top makes the difference. The crust for making this dessert can be made from different crumbs like Melba Snacks or using Pretzels as mentioned in this recipe but make sure that the crust has little salty flavor which increases the taste of this dessert.
2 cup pretzels (crushed)
1 cup sugar
¾ cup butter (melted)
12 oz cream cheese (softened)
8 oz whipped cream
6 oz instant strawberry jelly mix
15 oz frozen strawberries
