Earlier last week, I got the latest edition of Kraft Food & Family magazine, which I love, and saw an ad for the new Jell-O University Molds.  I seriously got a little twinge of excitement y’all, because I am all about some college football, and who doesn’t love Jell-O, am I right?  So to have these two things together in a tailgating food frenzy?  Yes please!  Sign me up!!

Georgia Almost No-Bake Strawberry Jell-O Cheesecake    Sweet Tea & Saving GraceBefore I go any further, I need to get something off my chest.  Excuse me for a moment:

Glory, glory to Old Georgia,
Glory, glory to Old Georgia,
G-E-O-R-G-I-A!”

GOOOOOO DAWGS!!!  SIC ‘EM!!!  WOOF WOOF!!

Obviously, I’m a huge Georgia Bulldog fan, so it’s no surprise that I got myself some Georgia Bulldogs Jell-O University Molds to add to the flair of our tailgating experience.  But I wanted to put my own twist on them and make something extra yummy!

  1. Cute little jello molds and the recipe for just the cheese cake with pretzels looks so good and
    not very many ingredients at all and it’s a snap to put it all together.

  2. I won’t lie – I could just eat the pretzel crust as a snack by itself. It’s GOOD! Thanks Tonya!

  3. Yummmmm! The little jello bull dogs are soooo cute! I love when Georgia is playing and the cameras show the cutie pie in his little sweater! I want to kiss his squishy little face!

  4. this sounds devine thanks for sharing with us i now have a new dessert to share with my family

  5. Okay – I’m not very much into football (I know – wha!?!? I’m one of the last unicorns there…) but I have always wanted to make a Jello Jiggler. I never have!

    I should get on it before the summer gets away from us…

  6. Such an easy recipe!! I love those new college molds, hoping Jello comes out with NFL molds! I would love the Carolina Panthers! 🙂

  7. Cheesecake is one of our favorite desserts in our house. I like how you used pretzels for the crust. Very creative!

  8. Who doesn’t love cheesecake!? So good! Seriously, that pretzel crust could be a snack all by itself. Thanks Stacey!
