This Cheesecake Pretzel dessert has a no-bake cream cheese filling that’s spread over a  pretzel crust and makes for one DELICIOUS Pretzel Dessert.If you’ve ever tried a jell-o pretzel dessert you may be familiar with how good a pretzel crust can be. This crust recipe is a combination of graham crackers and salty pretzels, creating a beautifully balanced sweet & salty crust. I highly recommend these cheesecake bars for an easy and delicious dessert!
