My little sister is out visiting from Virginia and I am SO excited that she is here!  Ashley moved to Virginia just about a year ago so her husband could go to vet school.  I’ve missed her terribly and so have the boys.  We picked her up from the airport on Thursday and after we got back from soccer camp she just passed out in the living room from sheer exhaustion.  I tried to keep the boys quiet so she wouldn’t be bothered (totally impossible by the way).  Thankfully, she was exhausted enough to just go straight to sleep.

My older sister Melissa had taken off from work early to come meet us and we were just hanging out in the family room waiting for Ashley to wake up when I had a thought – why not make something for when Ashley gets up??  Hmmm…something with chocolate perhaps??


These Chocolate Raspberry Crumb Bars are the perfect way to satisfy your deepest, darkest chocolate craving.  They are super rich and totally decadent – just how us girls like it!  I used bittersweet (60% Cacoa) chips for a really intense chocolate flavor that pairs perfectly with the raspberry.  I just love how pretty the bars are and how quickly them come together.  If you’re not a fan of raspberry you could go with strawberry or even blackberry.  Both would be delicious!
