Recipe Comments & Reviews

I've been making these for years and people always request them. They are seriously delicious!
I've made this every year around Christmas time for friends and family and always in demand at the annual Holly Fair Cookie Stroll. Easy and very delicious.
This is not just a bar cookie - this is a gourmet dessert that are found in the trendiest and most expensive bake shops. I bet that in a bake shop they would cut these into large triangles and charge $6 a piece for them! I use a little bit more raspberry than the recipe calls for and I scoop the raspberry jam out into a small bowl and mash it down until smooth so that I make certain to cover the bars over the entire 9 X 13 pan. These bars ship beautifully because the fudge helps to shore up the bar which also makes it easier for cutting. I have been making these for seven years and they are a top request! Pure love!
These were super easy to prepare and soooo delicious, but they are very rich, perfect for a true chocoholic. I will definately make these again. I might try to use milk chocolate chips next time instead or maybe half milk chocolate chips and half semi-sweet chocolate chips-yummy!
