Layer 1

  • 2 cups finely crushed pretzels
  • 3/4 cup melted butter

Layer 2

  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 (8 ounces) container Cool Whip
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

Mix together, and spread on top of cooled crust.

Layer 3

  • 1 large box black cherry Jell-O
  • 2 cans whole cranberry sauce
  • 2 cups boiling water
