    Chunky Streusel Jam Squares

    Bobbi Franklin from Sparks, MD

    Yummy! My family loves them and keep coming back for more. I used raspberry jelly as we don't like the seeds and everyone loves the chocolate and raspberry combination. Especially me!!

    Delicious

    Mary Brinkley from ADA, OK

    I loved these bars but will make some alterations next time. I used seedless strawberry jam since I don't like preserves. The taste was good but next time I will use more than what the recipe says because it was a little dry. Also, I will not use quite so many chocolate chips because I felt it overpowered the strawberry. Otherwise, though, they are fabulous. The streusel is so yummy I could eat it plain!

    Fabulous combination

    NICOLE F from HINGHAM, MA

    These bars are one of my family's new favorites! My husband isn't a big fan of raspberry and even he loved them! It is a glorious combination of raspberry, crumb and chocolate!

    Recieved Raves

    Sue Severson from Clear Lake, MN

    Baked these bars using homecanned raspberry jam and raspberry striped morsels-huge huge success! These are fabulous tasting-the almonds that toasted on the top of the struesel were especially great. Perfect amount of fruit. Since I personally thought this was too sweet I may try using spreadable fruit next.

    Easy and yummy dessert

    Connie Holland from Red Bluff, CA

    This was any easy but, very sweet tasting recipe. I decided to use half as many chocolate chips next time. This recipe is also good without the chocolate chips.

    More Topping

    Katherine Hill from Somerville, MA

    These were so quick and easy. I love topping, so I reserved more than just a 3/4 cup. I think next time I will up the quantity of dough. But my husband and I really enjoyed them.

    Rich and Pleasing!

    SUSIE DOTY from CHARLOTTE, NC

    I used milk chocolate chips, walnuts, and oldfashioned oats. My hubby said they were too sweet, so next time I'm going to cut the white sugar in half! They are great with vanilla ice cream! They are easy to make!

  •  Star(s)

    Excellent Dessert Squares!

    Naomi Allan from CHANDLER, AZ

    I used sugar-free jam in place of the regular fruit preserves and it still tasted great! Just a way to cut down on the sugar!

    YUMMY!

    Constance Hasemann from SACRAMENTO, CA

    These were so-o-o-o good! I am particularly fond of raspberry so of course I used the raspberry jam. In fact, I used seedless black raspberry jam one time and I especially liked that flavor. Two thumbs up!

    After reading the reviews on this recipe, I decided to use raspberry jam and white chocolate chips. It turned out to be a delicious combination. I agree - it's a pretty sweet dessert, but that's not a bad thing and everyone absolutely loved it - I mean LOVED IT! I'll be making this again for sure.

    Perfect Sunday Brunch

    janelle evans from PHOENIX, AZ

    I made a batch of these for a Sunday Brunch, and found them quite easy to prepare. As a bonus, they are delicious whether served hot or cold, so I left a plate out for guests to nibble with tea after the main feast was over.

    Kimberly Sathre from UNION CITY, CA

    I just made this yummy dessert. In addition to the raspberry jam, I added a bunch of fresh raspberries. It added just a little bit of zing. VERY good warm...I'm sure it would be double good served with vanilla ice cream!

    Meredith Sayre from BURLINGTON, KY

    These are delicious! A great alternative to chocolate. A friend made these for me when I was recovering from surgery and my family scarfed them up before I got any! I've tried several flavors of jam and they all work well. Elderberry, Apricot and Strawberry are our favorite. They pack and handle well for shipping to family for the holidays. Thanks for the recipe!

    YUMMY

    Veronica May from LEWISBURG, PA

    I printed this recipe off quite a while ago, and just yesterday got around to giving it a try. We were having company over for supper and I knew my friend would like the oatmeal and jam. She and I loved it, and so did everyone else! Even better it was super quick to make and looks like a magazine photo with so little fussing needed! I'll be adding this to my list of favorites!

    Jam Squares - Options

    Nancy Michel from AKRON, NY

    Tthis was a very easy recipe, I feel that it was rated harder than it really is to make. Use your imagination with this one...no chocolate chunks? then use chips instead. This recipe is very delicious using raspberry jam and white chocolate chips. (Makes a more elegant dessert) by drizzling extra white chocolate that has been melted in a criss-cross pattern after the bars have cooled, but before cutting.

  •  Star(s)

    They're a hit!

    SANDY ROWE from Roseville, MN

    No matter who or where you serve these bars they're a hit! I'm going to try orange marmalade next time, and I'm sure apricot jam would work well too.

    I made these for a group of friends, and we loved them! I used 1 cup of milk chocolate chips, and the cookies were sweet. I have made similar cookies using caramel rather than jam. I like the raspberry flavor better!

    Jam squares

    rebecca johnston from lake city, MN

    This recipe sounded easy and looked good, so I made a pan and brought them to share with my co-workers. What a hit!! Almost everyone wanted the recipe. I used strawberry freezer jam, which made it seem like I used fresh berries.

    Even better than expected!

    Beth Ruyle from Phoenix, AZ

    These Streusel Jam Squares are scrumptous! I wasn't planning on making them but my mother was urging me too so I gave them a try. I expected them to be alittle on the bready side (maybe a bit too much) but they are the perfect blend of crust, chocolate, and fruit. Even my husband, who doesn't thrive on sweets, loved them. It's tough to stop at one!

    Big Hit!

    Alison Hau from Los Altos Hills, CA

    I made these for a BBQ with friends and they were the hit of the party! People loved them and kept asking how to make them and what was in them! I made them with blueberry preserves and only 1 cup of chocolate (for fear they'd melt in the sun) and they were still yummy! I will definitely make them again for entertaining!!!
