“Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water! Hahah. Just kidding. I'm always on the look-out for recipes using raspberries (we have a BIG patch) AND chocolate (I have a craving!). This one MORE than fits the bill because it ALSO has cream cheese. COOK time includes SOME of the chilling time...plan accordingly.”

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Combine crust ingredients (cut in butter with pastry cutter); press into 13x9 pan; bake 15-18 minutes.
  3. Spread jam over WARM crust; set aside.
  4. In a small mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and milk until smooth, add melted vanilla chips, continue beating until smooth; spread over jam.
  5. Cool completely; chill for one hour.
  6. For glaze: melt chips and shortening, stir until smooth, spread over chilled filling; chill for 10 minutes more (set).
  7. Cut into small bars, chill another hour (practice restraint!).
  8. Store in fridge.
  9. SUBSTITUTE: IMHO there is nothing better than raspberry jam, but I suppose you could use strawberry or even apricot or orange marmalade for a whole 'nother flavor!
