Raspberry White Chocolate Crumb Bars

This is an adaptation from a recipe that I found in the Nestle Classic Recipes book I bought decades ago. Wow, that sentence made me feel really old. The original recipe was tooth melting sweet - way too much for me! Once you try this recipe, you'll find it hard to believe the original could be any sweeter than this one but I find it a tastier treat than its predecessor. It is definitely a winner and an easy "Go-To" treat for a quick dessert, unexpected company or a girl's night in.


1 Cup salted butter at room temperature

2 Cups Flour

1/2 Cup packed brown sugar (I like dark)

1 Cup Dark Chocolate Chips

1 Cup White Chocolate Chips

1 14oz can Sweetened Condensed Milk

1/2 Cup chopped Pecans

1/3-1/2 Cup Seedless Raspberry Jam


  1. Preheat oven to 350

  2. Grease/Spray a 9x13 pan

  3. Beat butter until soft, add flour, sugar and mix until crumbly

  4. Press 1.75 Cups of mixture into bottom of pan

  5. Bake 10-12 minutes

  6. Microwave dark chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk for 60 seconds, stir until incorporated

  7. Pour over hot crust

  8. Add pecans into remaining mixture and sprinkle over the chocolate

  9. Drop small amounts of jam over the mixture

  10. Sprinkle white chocolate chips over the top

  11. Bake for 25-30 minutes

  12. Cool

  13. Cut bars small, they are sinfully sweet!
