Chocolate Raspberry Crumb Bars

This has to be another one of my all time favorites.

1 cup ( 2 sticks) softened butter
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup paced light brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
1 can (14oz) sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
3/4 cup raspberry seedless preserves

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease 13x9 baking dish.
Beat butter until creamy. Add in brown sugar and beat until combined.. Add the flour and salt, continue mixing until it resembles crumbs. Press 1 3/4 cups of crumb mixture into the pan. Set remaining crumbs aside. Bake until golden brown 10-12 min. Remove from the oven.

While crust is baking, place sweetened condensed milk in a small saucepan and add 1 cup of the chocolate chips and stir over low heat until chocolate has melted and mixture is smooth. Pour over the warm crust.

Add the walnuts to the reserved crumb mixture. Sprinkle the crumbs evenly over the chocolate layer. Spread the raspberry preserves over the crumb mixture, then finish by sprinkling the remaining chocolate chips on top. Return to oven and bake for 20-30 minutes until center is set and crumbs are golden. Cool before cutting into bars.
