We made this as one of the desserts for Easter. It was pretty good! I wasn't exactly crazy about the bottom, though. Maybe it's because we crushed large pretzels, instead of small ones, so we got more of the bland middle. I'd like to make it again with a graham cracker crust instead. :)

Ingredients
2 cups finely crushed pretzels

PREHEAT oven to 350°F. Mix pretzel crumbs, 1/4 cup of the sugar and the butter. Press onto bottom of 13×9-inch baking pan. Bake 10 min. Cool.

BEAT cream cheese, remaining 1/4 cup sugar and the milk until well blended. Gently stir in whipped topping. Spread over crust. Refrigerate until ready to use.

MEANWHILE, stir boiling water into dry gelatin mix in large bowl at least 2 min. until completely dissolved. Stir in cold water.
