Grandma’s Signature Strawberry Jello Dessert Bars

This Strawberry Jello Dessert Bars recipe is a hybrid of a strawberry pretzel salad and a strawberry jello cheesecake with a walnut shortbread crust. It is easy to make and is a great shareable dessert to bring to potlucks and big family gatherings.
A stack of two Strawberry Jello Dessert BarsThese Strawberry Jello Dessert Bars were Ryan’s grandma’s signature jello desserts. She used to make this recipe whenever we go off to a family gathering, every single time without fail. Now, it has become one of my favorite recipes to make whenever we go to a party, albeit slightly time consuming due the three layers. But really though, most of the time, you’re just waiting for it to cool or set, and not actually doing any hard work.

How to Make Strawberry Jello Dessert Bars

Finely chopped walnuts in a food processor for Strawberry Jello Dessert BarsThese Strawberry Jello Dessert Bars are slightly similar to a strawberry pretzel dessert. But instead of the pretzel crust, we have a nutty and buttery walnut shortbread crust made with finely chopped walnut mixed with flour, butter and sugar. Ryan’s grandma used to chop the walnut by hand, oh so fine. But modern technology has allowed me to make this mush easier with the use of a food processor. View Post
