Keto Strawberry Pretzel Dessert. Just hopping on here to let you all know that I made this yesterday and it is so good!
It is perfect to make for a summer cookout. Top it with a cool whip and enjoy! The crust gives you the taste of a pretzel and for a large slice it is 0. gram net carbs!
My whole family loved it! It is very delicious and easy to make. It is even a hit with those not on low carb! I love the strawberry pretzel dessert and this little treat is the low-carb keto version.
