This tastes wonderful but the directions need to be rewritten. The walnuts and vanilla were left out. I knew where to put them in but some others may not.

You're so right, Cheryl! The crust on this was much better than the pretzel salad. The ladies at my luncheon raved about it. Very tasty. Thanks for sharing.

Although the recipe calls for walnuts, we left them out and enjoyed a wonderfully creamy smooth texture. This recipe is absolutely wonderful!

This was wonderful-I brought it to a summer party and it was a huge hit with everyone.

This was very good. However, the family did not especially like the meringue/cracker/nut layer - though I thought it was delicious. They much preferred the traditional pretzel layer from similar dishes. I did substitute Strawberry- Flavored Cool Whip for regular which gave a nice flavor & color to the middle layer.

The crust was extremely sweet. Next time I'll use Splenda in place of the sugar and cut the amount back some. Otherwise it was tasty. I think I prefer the pretzel crust though.

This is very very rich in sugar... But still very good ... when I make it again I am going to try exchanging the sugar for equal and see if it will be a little bit better... otherwise we loved it!!!
