Chocolate Raspberry Crumble Recipe

Yes, I was watching Ina on TV. She was making something similar to this. It looked good and it was inspirational. Looked up the recipe at the Food net work site and proceeded to change it to my taste. One time a person was trying to tell me how original I was. My husband and I both said no at the same time. I had said that I learn from the Internet. My husband then said, but she takes things and makes them better. It was a nice gesture on his part and I do like to make changes, yet not everything turns out better. I tell myself to not be afraid to fail and it is better to look like or feel like a fool than to not stand up, forward or react to a potential bad situation, trying to make it better or safe for others.

So, this is the new recipe that I made and created.

White Chocolate Raspberry Crumble

1C. of soft butter
2 1/4 C. of flour
1/2 C. sugar
1/2 C. brown sugar
1/2 C. cocoa powder
1C. rolled oats
1/4 tsp. salt
2 eggs beaten
1 C. raspberry preserve/jam
1/2 C. White chocolate chips

Heat oven to 350F. Grease a 9x9 square pan.
In a large bowl add flour, sugars, cocoa powder, oats and salt. Mix. Add butter and eggs and mix. you made need to use your hands at this point. Split the batter in 1/2 and press half into the bottom of greased pan. Spread preserves on top. Crumble the rest of the batter on top. Bake in oven for 40-50 minutes. When done pull out of oven and cool. When ready to top with chocolate. Place the 1/2 C. of white chocolate chips into a bowl to microwave and melt at 20 second intervals mixing each interval until all is melted, or use a bowl over a pot of a bit of water heating on a simmer to melt. Spoon melted chocolate over the top of crumble. Spread out with spoon if needed. You may want to cut the squares in the pan because it is harder to slice the squares with chocolate after it has fully cooled.

I baked mine for 40 minutes. You can use store bought preserves of any flavor you like and sugar free if needed. I used half white bread flour and half whole wheat flour. This is very crumbly and great reheated.

And OMG. My spell check says's rasberry is spelled raspberry. All my life, I never knew? Is this a joke. I looked it up online and then added red in front of the word. I never noticed the P. Boy I have a spelling handicap.
