When he and Alicia visited over the 4th of July, Jeff requested this dessert. It was delicious!

{No-Bake} Peach Pretzel Dessert

Yield: 9 servings 

Crust Ingredients:
3 cups miniature pretzel twists 
¼ cup melted butter 
¼ cup light brown sugar 

Filling Ingredients:
16 ounces cream cheese 
½ cup sugar 
⅔ heavy cream 
1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
(optional) ¼ caramel sauce for swirling 

Topping Ingredients:
4 peaches, chopped into ½-inch pieces 
(optional) ½ cup caramel sauce 

Finely crush the pretzels in a food processor, blender, or with a rolling pin in a heavy zip-close bag. Place the crumbs in a medium-size mixing bowl. Add the melted butter and brown sugar and stir to combine. Press the crust mixture into the bottom of an 8×8 pan. 

In a large mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese and sugar. Beat until combined, about 2 minutes. Add the heavy cream and vanilla extract. Beat until smooth and fluffy, about 4 minutes. Pour over the crust and smooth with a spatula. If desired, drizzle with caramel sauce and swirl lightly with a knife. 

Top with peaches. Drizzle with caramel, if desired. Refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving. Enjoy!
