Cooking expert Sassy Mama shows us how to make a Frozen Margarita dessert.


1 stick unsalted butter, melted

2 cups pretzel crumbs

1/4 cup sugar

1 container Cool Whip

5 limes, divided

1 14-ounce. can sweetened condensed milk

3 tbsp. tequila*

1/2 tsp. Triple sec or amaretto*


Use a bag of pretzels and put them in a food processor or blender until you get crumbs.  

Transfer crumbs to a medium sized bowl. Add sugar and melted butter.

Stir together and press into a pie pan or 8x8 baking dish.

Bake in a 350° oven for 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove the crust from the oven and allow it to cool completely. 

In a large bowl, whisk together sweetened condensed milk, tequila, triple sec, lime juice and the zest of two limes. Fold in one small container cool whip.

Pour into the cooled pie crust and spread evenly.

Add lime slices to the top to decorate and freeze completely before serving. 

***This can be made without alcohol. Just add 1 teaspoon fresh orange juice instead of the triple sec or amaretto.
