This recipe is from Kraft Foods and sounds as though it would be great for the holidays. The recipe calls for raspberry jam but I think that strawberry would be equally good and festive.

i also got this recipe from Kraft, I think the combo of raspberry jam and chocolate are magic, so i will stick with raspberry, but maybe apricot..these bars are nice and chewy and the textures are very good. the next time, i will use semi sweet morsels or maybe the new bittersweet morsels instead of the chopped semi sweet squares.
