Very Good Dessert

I made this dessert and was impressed at how easy it was. My husband thought it was very good as well. I did cut back on the amount of almonds the recipe called for.

Great Bar

I would like to tell you that I won a bake cook off with these bars!!! I would have to say the men in my company liked them the best. I thought they were very good, but I would watch the almonds, I think there were too many. I will make them again and not put as much almonds on top

Crowd pleaser

This is very easy to make and everybody raved about it. I made this recipe with dark chocolate chips and that went well with the raspberry. Definitely a repeater. :)
