These buttery bars combine the magical duo of chocolate and raspberry. My husband found this recipe in a farm paper, so I made it. The results were out of this world. —Bev Cudrak, Coaldale, Alberta

"Only change i would make is that i would go longer on that first bake, at 5 minutes, it's still too gooey to spread jam on. Go about 10 minutes."

"This has the perfect balance of chocolate to raspberry ratio. Not overwhelmingly sweet. Just right!"

"One cup of butter is too much. 40 servings for such a small pan means everyone gets a crumb, not a big piece as soon in pic. skip this recipe"

"I needed something quick to make to bring to a function, and I love the taste of chocolate and raspberry. I too found these a bit of a buttery mess, and really not that yummy. I ended up making something else and throwing these bars out. What a waste of one good cup of butter. Sorry, me and my family did not like these."

"<p>I read all the rave reviews, so I decided to make this yummy looking dessert. It came out a greasy mess. Way too much butter. I used the one cup (two sticks) cut them into pieces as specified and it came out a greasy mess.  I incorporated the butter pieces with the flour and sugar using a pastry blender too.  I will not attempt to make these again until the recipe is altered and/or corrected.  Sad</p>"
