Chocolate Chip Jam Bars

I made these bars last week when we had some friends over, and I still can’t get them out of my head (ask my husband, I’ve wanted to make them again every day this week). The chocolate is so rich and creamy, and the cookie dough has an almost nutty quality when paired with the jam. Simply put, these are little bites of chocolate heaven, and they are SO easy to throw together. Try them as soon as possible!

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a 12×8″ pan. In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter and vanilla until smooth. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour and sugar.

Beat the flour mixture into the butter mixture. Press 2/3 of the cookie dough mixture into the pan, reserving the remaining third. Bake about 10 minutes or until the crust turns light brown.

In a sauce pan over medium heat, melt half of the chocolate with the condensed milk. Once the crust has cooled for a bit, spread the jam over it. Then, pour the chocolate mixture over the jam.

Sprinkle the remaining cookie dough over the top, and then sprinkle with the other half of the chocolate chips.

Bake about 25 minutes. Let cool completely before serving.

  9. I love that you added jam! I hadn’t thought of that before, but I bet it really rounds out the flavors. These look absolutely delicious!

  10. Yum! I never would have put jam with chocolate chip bars. I bet strawberry jam would be delish.

  11. I have looked at this recipe three times today. I can’t stop staring at them! I really want to lick my monitor. I’d run home and make them, but I’m still trying to calculate how many hours of working out I’d have to do to make up for it… still, they might be worth it 🙂

  13. I really shouldn’t read blogs before dinner when I’m getting hungry. Now I want to make (and eat) a batch of these for dinner 🙂

  15. Oh, I would never have thought of adding jam to something like that. They look delicious!

  16. Mmmm. Delightful-looking. If I hadn’t already promised hubby a carrot cake for his birthday, I might have had to make this!

  17. These look tasty. I generally try to avoid s.c. milk in recipes, as it is both expensive and somewhat odd to me, but this use looks like a winner.

    by Jelli on Mar 12, 2010 at 11:26 am

  18. These look absolutely delicious-and what a great idea to add jam to these bars! Blackberry sounds so luscious with chocolate, yum!

  20. These sound fabulous! Mixing the chocolate with s. c. milk sounds interesting. Can’t wait to try them. Just one more reason to use my new mixer!

  25. Ooooh, I want to make these with marmalade!

  26. Hi I have a brownie run that only sizes up to 28cmx18cm inside the pan. The tin size in this recipe is bigger what could I do? I really wanna make these right now! Lol

    by Jennifer on Aug 24, 2011 at 8:07 am

  27. Also how many grams is a stick? I don’t understand how much a stick of butter is please help!!

    by Jennifer on Aug 24, 2011 at 8:14 am

  28. Jennifer – You can make these in the smaller pan; you just might have to increase the baking times both for the crust and for the assembled bars by a couple minutes. Also, one stick of butter is about 113 grams. Good luck!

  29. Hello,

    Does this recipe call for sweetened or unsweetened condensed milk? Thanks!

    by Paige on Aug 7, 2012 at 2:56 am

  30. Hi Paige – I used sweetened condensed milk.

    by Tracy on Aug 7, 2012 at 10:55 am

  31. Thank you for an amazing cookie recipe! Brought these to a cookie exchange last night & they were a huge hit! I used 1/2 organic whole wheat flour (to make them a little healthier? lol..) and 1/2 white flour. I used home-made blackberry jelly. So simple to make and seriously delicious!! Highly recommend this!
