    Amazing

    Vivian Casazza from Rumson, NJ

    The first time I made theese, my family devoured them. I know make them every time my sister comes home to visit from college, as a small present to take back with her. Her roomates enjoy them too!

    Oh So Good!!

    Mary Padgett from MARIETTA, GA

    Raspberry and semi-sweet chocolate - a winning combination at our home. Easy to make, and if you are short on time, the bottom layer can be baked one day, and the remaining layers the next.

    Chocolate Walnut Jam Bars

    Pamela Pullen from SCOTTSDALE, AZ

    This was such a simple recipe and that's just what I needed the day I made them. And fast! I added just a sprinkle of coconut on the top and this one was a hit! Everyone enjoyed and asked for the recipe! Thanks.

    They were very good, but I would not say they are quick to make. I used strawberry preserves will try again with another flavor.

    Chocolate Lovers' Yummy!

    Jeri Haley from Tenino, WA

    This is a great recipe. Loved making it, baking it, and even embleshing on it. I make my own jam and used my berry jam instead of store jam. Next time I'm going to try it with my Apricot jam. My husband went back for seconds, and we had a neighbor over for dinner and she also went back for 2nds and asked to take some home. Excellent recipe, and I think it would make a great bake sale item. I've added this recipe to my private collection and it ranks a 10 (highest!) Thanks to contributor! Cudos!!!! A+++++

    WONDERFUL!!!!!!!!!!!

    Jenny from Proctor, WV

    These bars were great! If you are a chocolate lover than these are for you. I made them with the raspberry jam and they were great and easy to make. I also made them for a school bake sale and they were the first to sell out!!
