Cooking with Giada De Laurentiis

Updated on December 30, 2010

The Charming Giada De Laurentiis

I love the Food Network. Among their many cooks I have a few favorites. Giada De Laurentiis is one of them. She makes you feel good about cooking, almost makes it seem fun. Her energy will delight you and at the same time you can learn to cook a delicious Italian meal.

Giada has two cooking shows on the Food Network. Everyday Italian which is the one I started watching years ago and Giada at Home

Chocolate Raspberry Bars with White Chocolate and Almonds

A recipe of Giada's

Recipe courtesy Giada De Laurentiis, 2008

Prep Time:

Inactive Prep Time:


Cook Time:

30 min




16 bars


* 2/3 cup raspberry jam

* 1 (21-ounce) box brownie mix (recommended: Duncan Hines Chewy Fudge)

* 3 eggs

* 1/2 cup vegetable oil

* 1/4 cup water

* 3/4 cup white chocolate chips, melted

* 1/2 cup chopped salted almonds


Position a baking rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Butter and flour a 9 by 13-inch baking pan.

In a small saucepan, stir the jam constantly over low heat until pourable, about 1 minute. Set aside.

In a large bowl, blend together the brownie mix, eggs, vegetable oil, and water. Using an electric hand mixer beat for 1 minute on medium speed. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Spoon the jam over the top of the brownie batter. Using a small spatula, swirl jam into the brownie batter. Bake for 27 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted about 1-inch from the edge of the pan comes out clean. Spread with the melted chocolate and sprinkle with salted almonds. Transfer the pan to a wire rack to cool.

Cut into 16 bars and store airtight in a plastic container for up to 1 week.
