These sweet and fruity bars are perfect for a snack whenever you have a sweet craving. Good after school treat.
FANTASTIC!! My only suggestion is to make sure you beat the butter/margarine for 15-30 seconds before adding the sugar and flour mixture. And you also only have to shape the dough about halfway up the sides of the pan. - 02 Dec 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
These taste phenomenal but I gave them a 4 because you can't make them as written. Since other readers said they were too thin in a 9x13 I made mine in an 11x7, which I think was perfect. However, there's no way you'd get 48 servings out of them, even in a 9x13. In an 11x7 my husband and I each had dessert 3 times, so basically 6 servings. The other problem I have with the directions is step #4. If you're just supposed to sprinkle the chocolate chips and spoon the raspberry mixture on top, you get a lot of crust peeking through. I ended up just spreading it all on top like a frosting, leaving some edge of the crust showing. It looked pretty and evenly distributed the toppings. - 10 Jun 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
My husband thought this recipe was "excellent" It was delicious but I think it could have been even better if I had used a smaller size pan to bake the crust in, making the bars thicker. Also, I did add extra sugar to the raspberries to sweeten them up. Will make this again - 12 Oct 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
