Chocolate Covered Strawberry Bars, layers of white chocolate chips, strawberry jam and milk chocolate, YUM!

Hello, friends! It’s Sarah from The Gold Lining Girl back to share another recipe! I took one of my best ever bar cookies, and gave them a Valentine’s Day makeover! I have a recipe for White Chocolate Raspberry Bars that are an all-time favorite of mine. They’re tried-and-true, an old faithful, that I know I can always rely on. I think we can all agree that white chocolate and raspberry are a classic flavor combo that never disappoints.

However, I wanted to experiment with this recipe favorite of mine to see if other flavor pairs worked as well. I am delighted to tell you that this chocolate and strawberry version, that I’ve affectionately named ‘Chocolate Covered Strawberry Bars‘, is as delicious as the original!

These Chocolate Covered Strawberry Bars have melted chocolate chips mixed right into the batter, then they have a super thick and generous ribbon of strawberry jam in the middle. The layer of jam is dotted with white chocolate chips, and then topped off with another layer of milk chocolate batter. They are very chewy, gooey, and full of chocolate and strawberry flavors! The white chocolate was a really nice touch for added dimension and sweetness!

If I would change one thing about these bars, I would add drizzles of both white chocolate and milk chocolate on top. Not for flavor – they are stuffed full of wonderfulness. The drizzle is mainly just for looks. Seriously, what was I thinking? All bar cookies need drizzle on top. So much prettier that way. Don’t make the mistake I made. Add the drizzle!! 🙂 Or sprinkles? You can never go wrong there! Either way, your valentine will thank you!

I hope you enjoy these delicious bars!
