EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

To warm raspberry jelly in the microwave, cook on HIGH for 30 to 45 seconds.

Bars topped with fresh raspberries should be eaten within one day because the delicate berries do not keep longer. When you anticipate serving only part of this recipe, ad fresh berries to the number of bars you will use. The extra bars without fresh fruit can be wrapped and refrigerated or frozen for another day.
