Chocolate Raspberry Crumb Bars

These bars are one of my favorite treats. They are so rich and decadent and always a huge hit. They are also quite simple to make which is a definite plus! I accidentally used a whole 2 cups chocolate in the filling and then added a third cup chocolate chips for the topping so they were extra chocolaty. The layer of chocolate in the middle is a lot thicker than they normally are. No complaints from the tasters, though!

Ingredients:
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups (12 ounce package) semi-sweet chocolate morsels, divided
1 1/4 cups (14 ounce can) sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cups chopped nuts (optional)
1/3 cup seedless raspberry jam

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350.

Beat butter in a large mixer bowl until creamy. Beat in flour, sugar, and salt until well mixed. With floured fingers, press 1 1/4 cups crumb mixture onto bottom of greased 13 x 9 inch baking pan; reserve remaining mixture. Bake fro 10-12 minutes or until edges are golden brown.

Combine 1 cup morsels and sweetened condensed milk in small, heavy-duty saucepan. Melt over low heat, stirring until smooth. Spread over hot crust.

Stir nuts into reserved crumb mixture; sprinkle chunks of crumb mixture over chocolate filling. Drop teaspoonfuls of raspberry jam over crumb mixture. Sprinkle with remaining morsels. Continue baking for 25-30 minutes or until center is set. Cool completely on wire rack.

Makes 3 dozen bars.
