LA Kings Celebration Chocolate Raspberry Bars

Posted on June 14, 2012 by


Getting ready to watch the celebration parade today on TV. The local ABC channel is broadcasting it and I just have to have something sweet and rich to go along with my sweet and rich celebratory feeling. What better way than with chocolate, raspberries and almonds.

Chocolate Raspberry Bars

Ingredients:

2/3 cup rasbpberry jam

1 box of brownie mix (I like Duncan Hines chewy fudge)

3 eggs

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1/4 cup water

3/4 cup white chocolate chips, melted

1/2 cup chopped salted almonds

Directions:

Position baking rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Butter and flour a 9 by 13-inch baking pan.

In a small saucepan, stir the jam constantly over low heat until pourable, about 1 minute. Set aside.

In a large bowl, blend together the brownie mix, eggs, vegetable oil and water. Using an electric mixer beat for 1 minute on medium speed. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Spoon the jam over the top of the brownie batter. Using a small spatula, swirl the jam into the brownie batter. Bake for 27 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted about 1-inch from the edge of the pan comes out clean. Spread with the melted chocolate and sprinkle with salted almonds. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

Cut into 16 bars and store airtight in a plastic container for up to 1 week. Or just sit down and eat them with a hot cup of coffee or tea.

GO KINGS!!!
