Chocolate Walnut Jam Bars

Chocolate Walnut Jam BarsA thin layer of fruit jam is all that comes between the brown sugar crust and the walnut-flavored topping. Melted chocolate chips are spread over the top to finish these bars off.

Recipe Ingredients:

3/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup seedless raspberry jam or apricot preserves
2 cups finely chopped walnuts
1/4 cup granulated sugar
3 large eggs
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups (12 ounce package) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels - divided use

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease 13x9-inch baking pan.
  2. Beat butter and brown sugar in small mixer bowl; beat in 1 3/4 cups flour. Press onto bottom of prepared baking pan.
  3. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely in pan on wire rack.
  4. Spread jam over crust. Combine walnuts and sugar in small bowl; set aside 2 tablespoons for topping. Beat eggs until light in large mixer bowl; beat in remaining walnut mixture, 2 tablespoons flour and vanilla extract. Stir in 1 cup morsels. Pour over crust.
