I can't even believe that this is rated a 1.5. When I saw the review I hesitated to make this, but I'm glad I decided to make them (my love for chocolate & raspberry combo trumped!). They are awesome! I took them to work and my coworkers loved them. Everyone asked me for the recipe. They disappeared just as quickly as the time it took to make them. :0)

Most disappointing! Was excited about the ease of recipe and fanciful look; texture was chewy and dense and tasted much to sweet.

If I decide to make them a second time, I will either use sugar free jam or half of the amount called for. It was WAY too much.

This a not only delicious but fancy, when cookies and bars are called for. I have used it for two wedding receptions in addition to several other occasions and it has been a favorite at each event.
