Hi Caroline, I hope you don't mind but I used my recipe#87925 and added in salted peanuts in place of the chocolate chips, I separated into two pans and doubled the topping, I did not have any raspberry syrup so I heated some strawberry jelly in the microwave and drizzled that on, you definately need to have a sweet tooth for this, a little goes a long way, anyway my DS and his GF loved it, thanks for sharing!...Kitten:)
