Disclosure: As a brand ambassador, I received products to facilitate this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Please see my disclosure policy)

I am thrilled to once again be partnering with Miss Jones Baking Co.! You may remember from my previous post HERE, that I made yummy Chocolate Raspberry Brownie Cheesecake Trifles with their Fudgy Brownie Mix and Miss Jones Chocolate Frosting Made with Coconut Oil. 

For today’s recipe, Salted Caramel Pumpkin Crunch Bars, I am using the Miss Jones Baking Co. Organic Vanilla Cake Mix. This is the mix that started it all! Miss Jones’ recipe for this moist, fluffy treat has the perfect hint of vanilla. It is simple yet delicious. I love how versatile this mix is too! Not only can you use it for cakes, but for cookies and bars like I did today. 

I don’t know about you, but when fall arrives that means one thing. Pumpkin everything! I am a huge pumpkin fan so I knew that I wanted to create a dessert with Miss Jones Baking Co. Organic Vanilla Cake Mix that incorporated my love of pumpkins and fall. I think that this recipe is a winner! My guys could not stop raving about how delicious that these bars are! I hope that you will enjoy them too!

Peaches and Cream Pretzel Dessert

 (All posts may contain affiliate links or sponsored content. Please see my disclosure policy)

Do you remember that delicious Strawberry Salad Dessert that used to be so popular back in the day? To this day I love that dish so much! I decided to take my own spin on it and create something using Peaches instead. I am in love with peaches during the Summertime and this Peaches & Cream Pretzel Dessert did not disappoint! I also used Gluten Free pretzels to make the dish Gluten Free. The real beauty of this dessert is the fact that it is so versatile and you can change up the fruit to use whatever sounds good! I am going to try Blackberries next as that would be delicious too!

Ingredients:

2 cups crushed pretzels (I used Gluten Free but you can use regular as well)

3/4 cup butter, melted

3 tablespoons white sugar

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

1 cup white sugar

1 (8 ounce) tub of Cool Whip

2 (3-ounce boxes) of Peach flavored JELL-O

2 cups of boiling water

2 (10 ounce) bags of frozen peaches

Directions:

Mix together the melted butter, crushed pretzels and 3 tablespoons of sugar.

Press the mixture into the bottom of a 9×13 pan.

Bake for 8-10 minutes just until browned and set aside to cool.

In the meantime, beat together the cream cheese and sugar. Fold in the Cool Whip.

Spread the mixture out across the cooled Pretzel crust.

Dissolve Gelatin in the Boiling water. Stir in the Frozen Peaches and let them set very briefly. Continue to stir until mixture is about the consistency of egg whites. Take mixture and spoon over the top of the cream cheese layer. Place in refrigerator to let set. I would give it at least 3-4 hours to set up.

Enjoy! You could even add more Cool Whip on the top if you desire. Think about taking this to your next picnic or potluck! I guarantee that there will be none left!
