A layer of fruit preserves is nestled next to a layer of chocolate in these delectable bar cookies. Oats and almonds give them a chewy texture to offset the sweetness of the filling.

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 3/4 cup raspberry, strawberry or apricot preserves
  • 2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels

Yummy struesel squares

I made these bars last night for our bible study and they were yummy. I didn't have any chocolate chips on hand so I just omitted them and they were still delicious. I used my homemade black raspberry jam. Thankfully I had cut them in small squares so I didn't feel so guilty having more than one.

Like a chocolate covered candy

This cookie reminded me of a "jelly fruit" chocolate candy. I used a mixture of strawberry and raspberry preserves. If I made this again, I would make it with only the chocolate or only the fruit but not the 2 paired together.

Whipped these up while we were snowed in during a northeast Ohio blizzard Sunday, no cable or Internet, and time on our hands. Everyone loved them and had suggestions for variations on the fruit for next time.

Fruit and Chocolate Streusel Squares

Tried this recipe based on items I had on hand. Substituted frozen strawberries (thawed, chopped and sweetened with 2 packets Splenda) in place of jam. Plan to make again and try other fruit flavors.
