'Little Big Town' Artist Shares Pretzel Salad Recipe on Facebook

In a recent online chat with the band's fans, Karen Fairchild said this salad was her favorite Thanksgiving dish.

Karen Fairchild may belong to one of the hottest bands in country music, but she's still a simple girl at heart.

In an online chat recently, Fairchild revealed her favorite Thanksgiving dish was her "mama's" pretzel salad, though it's hard to put the not-so-diet-friendly food in the same category as a salad in terms of health benefits. Still it seems the delicious-sounding dessert resonated with people: it was shared nearly 80 times in the first hour it was online.

She posted the following recipe to the band's Facebook page:

Pretzel Salad


2 cups pretzels crush

2 tablespoons sugar

1/2 cup butter melted

Mix and pat into 9 x 13 inch pan. Bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove and cool.

Cream Cheese Layer

1 8 oz. cream cheese softened

1 cup sugar

1 8 oz. Cool Whip

Beat until smooth and then spread over pretzel layer.

Jello Topping

1 6 oz. strawberry Jello package

2 cups boiling water

16 oz. frozen strawberries

Dissolve Jello in boiling water and then add frozen strawberries. Stir until strawberries thaw. Let the mixture start to set and then pour on top of cream cheese layer.

Cover and refrigerate.
