    Quite possibly one of the better, easy dessert recipes I've tried in awhile. Memorable actually. Rich, decadent and beautiful. Tender, buttery crust, creamy white chocolate filling, and the timeless combination of chocolate and raspberry. This unquestionably reminded me of petite gourmet desserts you'd find at fine quality brunch buffets. As I melted the semi-sweet chocolate, however, it didn't seem like it would be nearly enough to cover the top adequately. I doubled it, and was happy I did. Other than that, I prepared the recipe exactly as directed and was very pleased with it. I lined my pan with foil which made for easy cutting, not to mention a clean pan. For ease in cutting, run a thin-bladed knife under hot water and wipe dry before effortlessly gliding through the hardened chocolate. Hubs, who when he really enjoys something rates it four stars, exhuberantly exclaimed, "Ten!"  -  30 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I love these bars! I've made several batches over the years and they are superb! I find it easier to double the chocolate glaze and just pour it on top. The more chocolate, the better! I also don't hold back with the jam!  -  12 Jun 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I initially gave this recipe a negative review because my husband didn't like it. He thought the bars were too creamy, which could have been my fault for using ricotta instead of cream cheese, but I also found them quite crumbly and messy. It turned out that all they needed was to firm up overnight in the refrigerator. The next day they were great.  -  17 May 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
