I liked these quares and would make them again but I didn't like how the jam layer seemed to disappear. I was hoping it would be more apparent. I even used homemade jam but it was stawberry so maybe that was the problem. 4 stars

I liked this cookie bar very much! It seemed to disappear off my cookie plate too! I wasn't sure if they needed to be refrigerated, so I kept them in the refrigerator. They are quite good cold too. It was easy to make. I also think the egg did not mix well into the crust, but you don't notice it once it is baked. Adding the butter to the chocolate makes it instantly stiff. I threw my first batch of chocolate out thinking that I burnt it, but that wasn't the case as the second batch did the same thing. 4 stars

This recipe was a big hit, especially with my husband, he loved it & asks me to make it all the time. Highly recommend especially with raspberry jam. WONDERFUL!!! 5 stars

I made these with out the chocolate topping and used unsweetened coconut. I will try them again and this time I'll leave out the egg yolk from the crust. I didn't think it mixed in well and want to try them without it. overall I thought they were delicious. 4 stars
