How to Make Deluxe Chocolate Marshmallow Bars

Chocolate Pecan Cheesecake Bars 

1 pk Chocolate cake mix
1/2 c Butter or margarine -- Softened
1 Egg
1/2 c Pecans -- chopped
8 oz Cream cheese -- softened
14 oz Sweetened condensed milk
1 ts Vanilla
1 Egg
Heat oven to 350. Grease 13 x 9 pan. In large bowl, combine cake mix, margarine and egg; mix at low speed until combined. Stir in pecans. Reserve 1 cup for topping; set aside. Press remaining mixture evenly in bottom of greased pan. Beat cream cheese in medium bowl until fluffy. Add remaining filling ingredients and beat at medium speed until smooth. Pour over crust; sprinkle with reserved topping. Bake at 350 for 35 to 40 minutes. Cool completely. Cut into bars. Store in refrigerator.

Chocolate Raisin Bars

1 3/4 c All-purpose flour
1 pn Salt
8 ts Potato flour
3/4 c Butter
1/3 c Raisins; chopped
8 oz Semisweet chocolate pieces
1/4 c Vanilla sugar
Preheat oven to 350 F (175 C). Sift all-purpose flour, salt, potato flour and vanilla sugar into a medium-size bowl. Cut in butter until mixture forms coarse crumbs; mix in raisins. Mix together to form a soft dough. Roll out dough on a floured surface to a rectangle slightly smaller than an 11" x 7" baking pan. Place rolled-out dough in pan; press to fit. Smooth top; prick well. Bake about 25 minutes or until very lightly browned. Cool a few minutes. Using a sharp knife, mark through surface of mixture with lines to use as a guide for cutting. Let cool in pan. Cut mixture in 20 squares; remove from pan. Place chocolate in a small bowl over a pan of gently simmering water; stir until melted and smooth. Line a baking sheet with foil. Dip bars in chocolate, coating evenly; lift out with a fork and tap gently on side of bowl to remove excess chocolate. Place on foil. Place baking sheet in a cool place until chocolate sets. If desired, any remaining chocolate can be piped over bars for decoration.

Chocolate Raspberry Bars

1 1/2 c Rolled oats
1/2 c Unbleached flour
1/2 c Almonds, ground
pn Salt
1 ts Ground cinnamon
1/3 c Tiny semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 Eggs
1/2 c Maple syrup
1/2 c All-fruit raspberry jam
In a medium bowl, combine the oats, flour, almonds, salt, cinnamon and chocolate chips.
Combine the eggs and maple syrup in a small bowl and whisk until very well combined. Pour into the oat mixture and combine well. About halfway through the mixing it will become much easier if you use your hands.
Scoop half of the dough into the bottom of a 9-inch glass pie dish and smooth it out, going up the side a little bit, to make a smooth layer. If the dough is too sticky to work with, wet your hands and use them to press it in.
Spread the jam evenly over the dough in the pie dish. Then use your hands to very gently distribute the remaining dough over the the jam. In some places the jam might squish up over the top of this new layer of dough, but that is OK.
Microcook, uncovered, at full power (100%) until the dough feels dry to the touch, about 5 minutes. The raspberry jam will be bubbly and very runny, but let it cool completely before cutting into bars and it will be fine.
Makes 12 bars.
