1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk

1/2 cup ready-to-drink margarita mix

1 tablespoon sugar

1-1/2 teaspoons grated lime zest

1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

1 carton (8 ounces) whipped topping, thawed


1/3 cup crushed pretzels

4 teaspoons butter, melted

2 teaspoons to one tablespoon sugar

Lime slices, for decorating

  • Combine first five ingredients; mix well, then fold in whipped topping until smooth and well-blended.
  • For the pretzel topping, combine pretzels, butter and sugar. Spoon lime mixture into 6 glasses; top each with about 1 tablespoon pretzel topping. Freeze until firm, 4-6 hours. Serve frozen, and add lime slices on top for beautiful presentation.
