Berry Chocolate Streusel Bars


  • For the Streusel Layers:
  • 1¾ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup confectioners (powdered) sugar
  • ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, cold and cut into small cubes
  • For the Custard Layer:
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 6 ounces plain Greek yogurt
  • 6 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 cups frozen mixed berries
  • For Garnish:
  • fresh berries (such as strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries)
  • confectioners (powdered) sugar


  1. Make the Streusel:
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place the flour, sugar, cocoa, and salt in a large bowl and stir to combine. Cut in the butter until crumbly. Mixture should resemble oatmeal, with butter pieces no larger than the size of a pea. Press ¾ of the mixture into the bottom of a lightly greased 8x8 inch or 9x9 inch square baking pan. Bake for 15 minutes.
  3. Make the Custard:
  4. Whisk the eggs, sugar, yogurt, flour, orange juice, vanilla, and salt together in a large mixing bowl. Fold in the frozen berries, and pour the mixture over the par-baked crust. Top with the remaining streusel, and bake for one hour. Cool completely, cut into bars, top with fresh berries, and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
