Summer Recipe: Strawberry Pretzel Parfaits

by jessicaturner on May 5, 2014

Today I’m thrilled to have Jo-Lynne from Musings of a Housewife sharing a delicious summer recipe with each of you. We are “blog swapping” so I am over on her site sharing 5 fast memory keeping ideas! Fun, huh?

I’m so excited to be “blog swapping” with Jessica today! I am such an admirer of hers, and I’ve been blessed by her friendship and encouragement.

For those who don’t know me, I’m Jo-Lynne – a writer, runner and self-professed girly-girl who is obsessed with social media, bacon, sauvignon blanc and skinny jeans. I live in the suburbs of Philadelphia with my husband and three school-age children where I write about food, fashion, fitness and family at Musings of a Housewife.

Today I want to share one of my favorite summer recipes: Strawberry Pretzel Parfaits.

The combination of the salty pretzels, the sweet strawberries, and the tangy sour cream is absolutely divine.

How to Make Strawberry Pretzel Parfaits

Strawberry Pretzel Parfaits are super easy to make, making them the perfect light summer dessert or afternoon snack. Just hull and slice a quart of strawberries and sprinkle them with sugar. Allow the sugar to soak in while you prepare the other recipe components.

Pulse 2 cups of pretzel twists (I use Glutino, but you can use your favorite brand) in a food processor with some melted butter and cinnamon. (If you don’t have a food processor, just put the pretzels in a ziplock bag and pound away! That’s a great task for kids.)


Then sweeten a pint of sour cream with 1/4 cup of brown sugar. Now you’re ready to assemble!

In your favorite parfait glasses (you can also use wine glasses), layer the sour cream, then the pretzels, then the strawberries. Repeat and top with a dollop of sour cream. Garnish with a pretzel and a strawberry slice, and you have a lovely summer dessert!

You will want to serve these immediately so the pretzels don’t get soggy. Enjoy!!
