Low-fat Strawberry Pretzel Dessert

Submitted by: LKEETON

Introduction

Replacing the butter or margarine with liquid Butter Buds, using low-fat cream cheese, and low-fat whipped topping saves 10-15 gm of fat. In addition, using Splenda instead of sugar saves carbohydrates (sugar).

You can substitute raspberry gelatin and whole raspberries for the strawberries.
