These delicious chocolate bars look as good as they taste. They’re layered with raspberry jam and a creamy white chocolate filling for a surprisingly sweet combination.

Ingredients

Base

1 cup 250 mL Robin Hood® Original All Purpose Flour
1/4 cup 50 mL icing sugar
1/2 cup 125 mL butter

Filling

1/3 cup 75 mL Smucker’s® Pure Raspberry Jam
1 cup 250 mL white chocolate chips, melted
4 oz 125 g cream cheese, softened
2 tbsp 30 mL light cream or milk

Topping

1 cup 250 mL semi-sweet chocolate chips
3 tbsp 45 mL butter

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF (190ºC). Line a 9" (23 cm) square cake pan with parchment paper, overlapping the two ends for easy removal.
  2. Base: Combine flour and icing sugar in a medium bowl. Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Press firmly into prepared pan.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 15 to 18 minutes, or until golden.
  4. Filling: Spread jam on warm crust. Beat cream cheese and cream in small mixer bowl using an electric mixer on medium speed. Add white chocolate, beating until smooth. Mix well. Spread evenly over jam. Chill to set, about 1 hour.
  5. Topping: Melt chocolate chips and butter together over low heat, stirring until smooth. Spread over filling. Chill until set.
