    Talk about decadent and sinful... I just read about Greek yogurt in one of the posts and would you believe this recipe contains greek yogurt and you would never believe it. I made this last week and I might try again this week and if you try it I hope you remember me...lol. I will copy the recipe here and I hope it works. Let me know if you make the dessert.

    Crust
    2 cups crushed pretzels
    3 tablespoons sugar
    12 tablespoons (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted

    Filling
    8 ounces cream cheese
    3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar
    7 ounces plain Greek yogurt (not fat-free)
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    2 3-oz. packages strawberry gelatin
    1 16-oz. package frozen unsweetened sliced strawberries
    1 16-oz. package frozen unsweetened blueberries
    3/4 cup heavy cream

    Preparation
    1. Make crust: Preheat oven to 400ºF; mist a 9-by-13-inch baking pan with cooking spray. Place crushed pretzels in bowl of a food processor. Add sugar and melted butter and pulse to combine. Press pretzel mixture into baking dish and bake for 8 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and allow to cool completely, about 20 minutes.

    2. Make filling: Using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat cream cheese with 3/4 cup sugar until well blended, about 2 minutes. Fold in yogurt and vanilla. Spread over cooled pretzel crust, cover with plastic wrap and chill for at least 2 hours.

    3. In a large bowl, dissolve both packages of gelatin in 2 cups boiling water. Let cool until mixture begins to get syrupy, about 15 minutes. Stir in strawberries and blueberries and pour over cream cheese layer. Chill until firm, 2 to 3 hours.

    4. Whip cream until soft peaks form. Add remaining 1 Tbsp. sugar and continue whipping until stiff peaks form. Cut tart into squares and serve with whipped cream.

    Lightening tips for this recipe--although you didn't ask for this : )

    * You can eliminate the butter and keep the pretzels a nice crumbly coating on the bottom (you might only need 1 cup if you do this)
    * You could probably eliminate the sugar in the crust if you do this as well
    * You can use light cream cheese
    * You CAN use nonfat Greek yogurt
    * You can use sugar free strawberry gelatin if desired
    * You can delete the whipped cream topping or use a lot less
