Thank you for sharing!!

This Strawberry Pretzel Salad in a Jar is just about the tastiest little treat ever. And since each individual portion is made up in their own individual jar, it’s always a hit with the kids, too! This means that everyone gets the same size and there’s no fighting at all. (which in my world, that’s a good day!)

What I love about this simple dessert recipe is that I can make these ahead of time and just have them waiting and ready in the fridge. I actually love to surprise the kids with snacks and when they open the fridge and see these jars full of goodness waiting, it’s seriously like the best day ever!

As long as you can find 20 minutes during your day to make up this dessert dish, that’s really all you’re going to need. Since it does have to chill in the fridge for several hours, making them up early in the day is best.

And if you’re creating this treat during the summer, the nice and cool texture and taste is a wonderful way to wind down after a hot and humid day. Just make certain that the kids wash out their own jars so that they’re ready for you to fill them up again the next time that you make this delicious strawberry dessert.
