These are very good and easy to make! I used the dark chocolate chips and reduced-sugar raspberry jam instead, and they came out fantastic! The low-sugar preserves add a little bit of tartness to the otherwise-very-sweet cookie bar. Family loved it, would definitely make these again.

It's basically a Toll House bar with jam. It was nice, but my family preferred the cookie without the raspberry.

Very yummy, followed the recipe with the minor exception of using butter flavored shortening since that is all I had on hand -- if I were to make again I would probably reduce the chocolate chips to a cup and a half as they took over a little bit and I would probably like to taste a little more cookie and raspberry.

This recipe is really, really good. No changes needed - some members suggested less sugar or sugar-free preserves, but I thought everything was just right (and I don't like overpoweringly-sweet things.) Took about 8 minutes longer to cook than the recipe says, but it makes quite a few. I will make this again!

This was a hit and really easy to make. I used white chocolate chips which went well with the raspberry.

This recipe is a keeper. The red from the jam shows through the top crust and looks nice. Chocolate and raspberry together, how can you go wrong?

GREAT. I made mine with strawberry preserves and white chocolate chips. Perfect combination.

Definitely sweet...I used 1 cup of white chocolate chips and 1 cup of milk chocolate chips. I only had half a cup of raspberry jam, so I used half a cup of blackberry jam to make up the difference. If I make these again, I may cut back the chocolate chips to 1 and 3/4 cups because the bars were very sweet.
