From Fort Collins, Colorado, Barb Bovberg shares, "I’ve been whipping up these delicious bars for over 10 years, with recent help from my 5-year-old daughter. I bake them every Christmas and have received many compliments and recipe requests. The chocolate drizzle makes such a pretty lacy effect."

"Brought these bars to a holiday party and they all disappeared quickly! There were several requests for the recipe. I'll be making these crowd-pleasers again, perhaps experimenting with a different flavor of preserves."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 3, 2012

"I used 3 cups of graham crackers because the 1 2/3 cups was way too little to cover the bottom of the pan and the one stick of butter was enough for it. Chocolate chips should be more as that is not enough. I couldn't get it to drizzle very well. Perhaps I will mix a little milk with it to make it a litle more liquidy. Microwaving the chips is not a good idea unless you put in on 50% power and di it 15 seconds at a time and sir. . My first batch burned. They were to hard to cut out of the pan. I was bringing them to a church function and just couldn't. Next time I would flour the greased pan to see if that helps. They taste delicious though. They need to be kept refrigerated or the get very soggy,"
