    Awesome!!!

    Annlyn LaScala from ,

    I have made these bars so many times and each time someone asks me for the recipe!! I add a little more brown sugar and no nuts. I also drizzle more jam on top than they call for. I have also used strawberry seedless jam to switch it around and again everyone loves them!! A must to try!!

    More Raspberry

    Joanathan Lim from CA

    I didn't use nuts, but instead I switched it with morsels, it turned out gooey, but was fine. I also added more raspberry, and it's perfect!!

    Chocolate Raspberry Crumb bars

    Julie Kilroy from ,

    I was a little dissapointed. I had trouble baking them, I actually had to leave them in the oven 10min longer then said and even then the center was still gooey. The bars never became stiff.

    Richly Decadent

    Pamela McCandless from Auburn, IN

    These bars satisfy that craving with a fantastic blending of flavors that won't soon be forgotten. Who can forget rich chocolate, fruit, and the smooth buttery flavor in the crust, no one! In a nutshell, these are fantastic! Will become a favorite for sure. Try with different fruit flavors, all of them are perfect for this bar.

    Fantastic Bars that Disappear Quickly!

    Lorin Elise from Frederick, MD

    Great recipe; I altered it a bit (for ease of preparation) by using a sugar cookie mix that I had on hand as the base/crumble. I also substituted milk chocolate chips for the semi-sweet. There's definitely plenty of chocolate; I upped the amount of raspberry so that it wouldn't be overpowered. Took these babies to a Labor Day cookout this weekend and they were GONE before the other desserts had barely been touched! Very easy and very tasty!

    HEAVENLY!!!!!

    Lynn Kreusser from New Fairfield, CT

    These bars can't be beat!!! I made these for college kids last year and whenever I visit the campus I always have to have a double batch with me. They're chewy, chocolatey, fruity all in one. Try them...you won't be disappointed.

    Chocolate Rasberry Bar! Yum City

    Rebecca Barclay from TUCSON, AZ

    WOW is all I can say! So easy, and so yummy. I could not make them fast enough. So, I doubled the recipe, baked two batches and took it to our block party for our newly finished neighborhood park, which we helped by putting in cactus/succulents!!These were the BIG HIT! Everyone was like, you garden AND Bake too??!* Thanks VVB, you made me look Good!

    chocolate raspberry deliciousness

    janet patterson from Lindenhurst, NY

    chocolately, fruity, just delicious. i have added additional raspberry preserves the second time i made these and my family, neighbors and co-workers loved them. Delicious and easy.

    Good, but definitely a candy not a cookie bar!

    Christine Bailiff from Palm Harbor, FL

    These bars were good, but everyone at my house agreed, too sweet. The chocolate layer plus more chips on the top was really overkill (and I increased the raspberry because it did not look like enough, and still these were too chocolatey and not enough of the other stuff-- mine did not look like the picture above, but like mostly chocolate with a little bit of crust and dab of raspberry). They were more like eating a piece of candy. For holidays or parties you could cut them in small pieces and put them into mini muffin wrappers and that would be about right. If making them again, I would cut the chocolate in half and melt it with cream instead of condensed milk (like a ganache), and spread this on the crust but skip the extra chips on the top. Or, you could skip the chocolate layer and just spread the raspberry on top of the crust, top with the remaining crumbs and the choc. chips. This would be more than enough chocolate. Either way, I think you need to increase the raspberry

    A little bit of heaven!

    Carmela Pugno from West Haven, CT

    I've made these cookies more times than I can count and, wherever I take them, someone always asks for the recipe! The flavor combination is so delicious, they're usually gone very quickly. I add another cup of chocolate morsels to the condensed milk, but use bittersweet for the second cup to control the sweetness.

    Very interesting!

    Pamela Lewandowski from Baton Rouge, LA

    These are different from your average dessert bars. My husband and I love them, but they weren't what I was expecting. It's almost like they're salty--but they aren't...the raspberry jam adds a neat twist. I highly recommend them for something new at gatherings!

    Delicious

    meryl stollar from MERRICK, NY

    The last time I made these at my older son's request, he brought them to his college dorm, & after I was introduced as the mom that made those awesome chocolate bars. Anyway, they are delicious and easy. I chose not to add nuts, but I substitued boysenberry preserves, and they were wonderful. I didn't measure the preserves, I just put spoonfuls all over the top. I am making another batch as I write this because my son has requested them. Everyone who has tried them & I have passed them around to the neighbors have nothing but raves. If you like these try the chocolate crumb bars as well, they are also terrific. Both are keepers!!!By the way this is a great website for all baking ideas!!

    Chocolate Raspberry Bars

    Shelley Jones from FULTON, NY

    These were wonderful. The second time I made these, I used 1/2 cup of raspberry jam instead of 1/3, just because I love raspberry. They were terrific.

  •  Star(s)

    Awesome...

    Cheryl Clutts from MURPHYSBORO, IL

    I made these for a party and they would have all been gobbled up if we didn't have other desserts. I did add more of the jam than the recipe called for. Everyone enjoyed!

    Chocolately Raspberry Crumb Bars

    Dian Robinson from SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA

    I made these for a Valentine's Day buffet at work. They were the first to disappear and people are still asking for the recipe. I used pecans and they were ultimately delicious.

    4 batches later...

    Hannah Hafemann from SALT LAKE CITY, UT

    I first made these as a quick treat to bring to work, but they all got snatched up before I could taste one...I have made these a few times now and have found that they disappear quicker than any other bar cookie I make! I use more raspberry jam than is called for and mix a bit of oatmeal into the crumb topping.These would be great with fresh berries in season!

  •  Star(s)

    Chocolate lovers will love this!

    Jeanie Slusser from SHIPMAN, IL

    If you're a chocoholic like me, you're going to love this recipe. The only thing I'll do differently next time I make it is to add more raspberry jam. My husband and I love the chocolate-raspberry flavor and thought these bars could use more raspberry in them. This recipe is also very easy to make.

    Chocolate Raspberry Crumb Bars

    Kathleen Catalano from CHEPACHET, RI

    I usually am not a fan of making chocolate desserts, but the combo with the fruit jam modifies the taste of just chocolate. Such an easy recipe, one can use any kind of fruit jams to satisfy anyone's favorite.

    A must try

    TJ Miller from GLEN MILLS, PA

    These have become a staple in our house - especially for Sunday brunches. I've made it with strawberry jam, also, which was good. I gave the recipe to a friend of mine who says she uses whatever jam she has in the fridge, and they're always great.

    Mary Ann Welker from NORWICH, CT

    I tried these since I love raspberry. I found them to be too sweet for my liking. However a friend of mine came in and tried them. She loved them, and took all of them home to her children. They loved them. So maybe my reaction is just personal, and they are realy good to most folk.

    Chocolatey Apricot Crumb Bars

    Kay Youngblood from PALOUSE, WA

    When I read this recipe it "tasted" great. I modified it by adding a few extra chocolate morsels for the filling and instead of raspberry jam, I substituted homemade apricot jam. Instead of 1/3 cup, I added 1 cup of apricot jam. I shared both the bars and recipe with 2 sets of friends/gatherings. They all really liked these, especially my husband!

    FOUND IT!

    Cathie Lester from ROCKWOOD, PA

    One of my daughter's students has given her a gift box of these scrumptious bars for the last two Christmases. She shared them with me and I asked her to get the recipe. After two attempts, she met the student's mother at a teacher conference and she referred her to your website. I made these yesterday and they are VERY easy to make and tastes out of this world. It is now one of my favorite recipes! Thanks Nestle!
