I have had this recipe on my mind for awhile in wanting to try it, so when I was drafted to make a dessert for Christmas dinner I decided to spice it up and try something new.
And by the compliments this little tasty earned, I am thinking this may be a new holiday favorite!
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
2 cups flour
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup dark chocolate chips
1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 can sweetened condensed milk
3/4 cup fresh raspberries
1// Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Spray 9x13 pan with non-stick spray.
2// Using a hand mixer, blend butter until creamy.
3// Mix in brown sugar, flour, and salt until crumbly.
4// Press 1 3/4 cups of crumb mixture into being pan.
(Make sure to save some of the crumb mixture to sprinkle on top of raspberries and chocolate chips)
5// Bake crust for 10 to 12 minutes.
6// While crust is baking, our condensed milk and add dark chocolate chips. Stir over low heat until mixture is smooth and chocolate fully melted.
7// Remove crust from oven and pour chocolate mixture over warm crust.
8// Sprinkle remaining over chocolate mixture. Spoon raspberries over mixture and top with mini chocolate chips
9// Bake for 20-30 minutes. Let bars cool before cutting and eating commence.
Not to difficult right? It is funny to me because I do not like dark chocolate by itself, but pair it with something like brie cheese or fresh fruit and I am there. And yes, these are as tasty as they look ;)
Are you a fan of dark chocolate? What are your favorite pairings to go with chocolate?
