Now I decided – on what was the hottest day of our summer so far – that I had a sweet tooth. What I also decided was that this recipe sounded perfect to whip up early in the day before the heat set in and then it would be chilling away in the refrigerator until dessert time.

The other wonderful thing was that I had everything I needed to make this except for the Cool-Whip, so I added that to my list and off I went to Kroger before it got any hotter. Once home, I set to work. Bonus … only has 10 minutes bake time in the oven, barely enough to inch the thermostat upward.

Now the original recipe that I semi-based this off of was found on Allrecipes.com, but I have to tell you I modified a lot. Half the amount of butter, sugar, and pineapple, and guess what? We didn’t miss it!

If you’d like to add additional sugar so it is sweeter, by all means. Also by using less butter, the pretzel crust is a bit more crumbly and chunky, add in additional butter if you want a solid crust.

Basically, do what makes you happy. So next time you need a fast, delicious and simple dessert, do try our Creamy Pineapple Pretzel Dessert!
