Raspberry and Chocolate Streusel Bars

My mother loves chocolate and raspberry
so I made these when my parents came to visit for Christmas.
Of course, I had extra to send along with her
as they continued on their road trip!

~~~~~
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 1 egg,beaten
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) cold butter or margarine
  • 1 jar (12 oz.) seedless red raspberry jam
  • 1 1/3 cups (8 0z. pkg.) HERSHEY'S Dark Chocolate Baking Pieces Filled with Raspberry Creme
~~~~~
  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 13x9 x2-inch baking pan.
  2. Stir together flour, sugar, pecans and egg in large bowl. Cut in butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs; set aside 1 1/2 cups crumb mixture. Press remaining crumb mixture on bottom of prepared pan. Stir jam to soften; carefully spread over crumb mixture. Sprinkle with baking pieces. Crumble remaining crumb mixture evenly over top.
  3. Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely in pan on wire rack; cut into bars.

Oh, wow, this looks wonderful! And me on a new year's diet. Sigh. (I'll bookmark it for a special occasion.)

Thanks for stopping by stillpoint. I enjoy reading about your cat-crew, too.
