Chocolate raspberry bars will become a holiday favorite that you will want to bake throughout the year.
1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter softened
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 (12-ounce) package semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 (14-ounce) can (1 1/4 cups) sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup finely chopped nuts
1/3 cup seedless raspberry jam
Heat oven to 350°F.
Beat butter in bowl at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add flour, brown sugar and salt; beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed.
Press about 1 1/2 cups mixture onto bottom of lightly greased 13x9-inch baking pan with floured hands. Reserve remaining mixture. Bake 10-12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
Combine in small heavy saucepan 1 cup morsels and sweetened condensed milk. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, 3-5 minutes or until smooth. Spread over hot, partially baked crust.
Stir chopped nuts into remaining crumb mixture; sprinkle over bars. Drop scant teaspoonfuls of raspberry jam over chocolate and crumb mixture; sprinkle with remaining morsels. Bake 25-30 minutes or until topping is light golden brown and center is set.
Cool completely on wire rack. Cut into bars
