White Chocolate Raspberry Bars

I was heading to northern Minnesota for a family reunion. Of course, baked goods were expected! These tasty, buttery White Chocolate Raspberry Bars were boxed up, loaded in my suitcase, through TSA to a Northwoods cottage where they got rave reviews!White Chocolate Raspberry Bars | Buttery dough flavored with white chocolate, a thin layer of raspberry jam plus more dough and white chocolate chips bake into a dreamy bar cookie!

White Chocolate Raspberry Bars

Two of my favorite ingredients in one cookie bar! I couldn’t help but lick the bowl (quality control and all!) and the flavors were just perfect. A little almond extract added a magnificent boost of flavor, and I never can pass up a white chocolate dessert! 2/3 of the cookie dough batter infused with melted white chocolate made up the base of the bars. After baking, a thin layer of raspberry preserves was spread over the hot bars.  The rest of the batter, this time studded with white chocolate chips, was dolloped over the surface before a second stint in the oven. It was nearly impossible to let them cool before diving in.

The only glitch was that the chocolate chips did not completely melt after sitting in the hot butter, so I had some chunks in the bottom layer. But, what the heck, they’re still divine! Next time I may chop up a bar and a half of Ghirardelli white chocolate as I find that melts better than the chips. My sister, Maddy, ate one of these white chocolate raspberry bars before going to bed and then had a crazy dream about eating the most incredible desserts in her life. I think that says it all!!White Chocolate Raspberry Bars | Buttery dough flavored with white chocolate, a thin layer of raspberry jam plus more dough and white chocolate chips bake into a dreamy bar cookie!

  5. If I was a TSA officer, I would raid your suitcase and declare that these weren’t allowed through security. Then I’d excuse myself, head to a quiet room and indulge in these crazy delicious looking bars. Good thing that’s not my line of work, right?

  6. I was gonna say, 2 of my favorite ingredients also! The bars look awesome and I knda like the pieces of white chocolate in there.

    They look delish! Thanks for reminding me of these!!! Yum and easy, too! xoxo

  9. I can certainly see why these bars would get rave reviews, they are gorgeous! I did not bake anything for our trip to Wisconsin because I had intended in taking carry on only…it was a really last minute choice to switch to checked bag (because I had 6 pairs of shoes!).😳

  10. Gotta try these yummy bars Liz – anything white chocolate!!!! Besides, I welcome all sweet dreams, lucky Maddy! XO

  11. Hi Liz, I first saw these amazing bars on IG and can easily see why they are a family favorite. Love this combo!

  12. I can imagine how quickly these delicious looking bars disappeared! White chocolate and raspberries go perfectly together. Lucky you with the family reunion! Our families have dwindles, no more reunions on either side. Thanks for the recipe!

  13. White chocolate and raspberries are a wonderful combo. I just need some good raspberry jam. These bars would not last long in our house. What would I give for sweet dreams!

  14. I love the story of your sister’s dreams!! I can only imagine the dreams these bars would invoke haha they look fab. Raspberry and white chocolate is such a perfect combo!

  15. I certainly do miss white chocolate. It’s just so delicious. I don’t know what it is about it. I need to figure out a way in which I can create a GiGi Approved version.

  16. Yes, please — and thank you! These sound amazing. What a great flavor combination too.

  17. You are lucky to have made it through TSA, Liz. Seeing your bars might’ve made a weaker agent confiscate them for their own family =)

  18. These bars are perfection – such an ideal summer treat, and cut so beautifully as always!

  19. Love the white chocolate – good flavor combo! Enjoy your weekend, Liz. 🙂
