Streusel Bars

The taste of these bars was good, but I had a few problems with the glaze. First it wasn't liquidy enough to be drizzled. That was easy enough to fix with a little more milk, but then once it had set, it didn't stick to the bar. I had little pieces of glaze all over the place.

They loved 'em!

I make the chocolate raspberry crumb bars all the time and everyone loves them. When I came across this recipe, I decided to give them a try instead of the raspberry bars. Everyone who tried them absolutely loved them. They're delicious, pretty, easy to make...another wonderful Very Best Baking recipe. Thank you once again!
