cream cheese, softened
white chocolate chips
2 (1 ounce) squares
semisweet chocolate, chopped
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!"
I'm not sure if it was the changes I made, but the recipe was just not my favorite. I used a sugar cookie bottom from store-bought refrigerator dough. Was really hard to get out of the glass pan. 1 cup of jam was waaay too much for a 9x9 pan. Would use a half cup next time. The cream cheese/white chocolate layer was yummy and I'm not a white chocolate fan. The glaze I omitted the shortening and made a "ganache" with whipping cream and used more glaze than called for. All in all, it was OK, though sooo challenging to get out of the pan and cut up. Stuff slid around and I could hardly keep the bars together. And that was after refrigerating.
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!
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.
My friends really enjoyed these bars and all asked for the recipe.
I would have liked the crust to have been a little less crumbly.
More or less exactly what I had in mind when I was looking to make raspberry bars - I made them again, but used chocolate chip cookie dough as the crust. Delicious and chewy.
Very decadent and delicious! They turned out fantastic. I baked them in a 9x13 pan which made them turn out a bit thin. I would recommend just a 9" aquare pan (or smaller) for more substantial results.
Addictingly delicious! Instead of this crust I pressed the Easy Sugar Cookie into the pan. I also covered with the chocolate layer (not drizzled), then decorated the top with shredded coconut. Sooo good!
Very simple and easy to make, yet delicious! The taste gets 5 stars, but the fact that they are very gooey and messy to eat gives them 4 stars. Next time I will grease the bottom of the pan to make sure that the crust can come out cleaner.
