Raspberry Chocolate Shortbread Bars

My mom found a recipe similar to this one in a Weight Watchers magazine. We all enjoy eating healthy so it is fun to make healthy super yummy desserts. These crumble bars are so yummy and super easy to make. You probably will need to go to the store for a few items on the ingredients list, we had most things but I even had to make a trip to the store. 
2 cups low-fat buttermilk baking mix (I used low-fat Bisquick)
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp unsalted butter melted and cooled
2 tbsp milk (fat-free or 1%. I used 1%)
1 (14 oz) can fat-free sweetened condensed milk
1 and 1/4 cups chocolate chips
3 tbsp chopped pecans
1/3 cup seedless raspberry jelly, jam, or preserves

1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Line 9x13 baking pan with foil and spray with nonstick spray. 2. Mix butter, baking mix, and brown sugar together. Transfer 1/4 cup into small bowl for final topping. 3. For crust, drizzle milk over remaining mixture and stir in until evening moistened. 4. Press evenly in pan to cover bottom and bake until edges brown, about 15 minutes. 5. For filling, microwave condensed milk and 1 cup of the chocolate chips for 1 and 1/2 minutes. Stir until chips are melted. Spread evenly over hot crust. 6. Stir pecan into rest of topping, sprinkle over filling. Add jam by 1/2 teaspoons over topping, 2 inches apart. Sprinkle the rest of the chocolate chips over topping. 7. Bake until filling is set, about 25 minutes. Cool. Lift from pan using foil. Cut into 30 bars. 

Honestly I was a little skeptical at first. Raspberry jam and chocolate, weird combination right? But these are SO good! You wont be disappionted. Enjoy.
