We’re gearing up for holiday summer festivities ourselves and although I will not be hosting a Fourth of July celebration, I plan on making these Red, White & Blue Bars for a BBQ picnic we will be attending. With the help of Krusteaz Raspberry Bar Mix, I save on time with the ease and convenience of having a majority of the ingredients already in the box! Simply add butter and blueberries for an easy dessert.
1 package Krusteaz Raspberry Bar Mix
½ cup (1 Stick) Butter or Margarine, Melted
1/2 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
Heat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease 8x8x2-inch baking pan.
Stir together melted butter and crust mix with a fork until mixture is crumbly. Spoon 2/3 of crust mixture into pan. Press firmly into bottom of pan. Bake 15 minutes or until edges begin to brown.
Spread rasberry filling evenly over hot crust. Crumble remaining crust mixture over filling.
Sprinkle 1/2 cup fresh or frozen blueberries over raspberry filling.
Bake 26-28 minutes or until bubbly around edges. Cool completely before cutting.
Makes 16 bars.
