Berries & Cream Brownie Squares

1 19-21 oz package brownie mix, and ingredients to make cake-like brownies*
¼ cup strawberry jam
6 oz white chocolate baking squares or almond bark
16 oz container Cool Whip, thawed and divided
8 oz block cream cheese, softened
¼ cup powdered sugar
½ cup toasted sliced almonds, coarsely chopped
2 cups strawberries (about 12 strawberries), sliced
½ cup blueberries
Chocolate baking squares, almond bark, or chocolate syrup

Prepare brownies according to package.  Microwave jam on high for 15- 20 seconds or until melted.  Pour and spread over brownies.  Microwave the white chocolate on high 1-2 minutes or until melted and smooth, stirring every 30 seconds.  Stir together cream cheese and powdered sugar with melted white chocolate.  Spread mixture over strawberry-covered brownies.  Cut brownies into portions.  Place a dollop of Cool Whip on each brownie.  Top each with a couple strawberry slices and blueberries.  Sprinkle entire pan of brownies with almonds.  Drizzle chocolate syrup or melted chocolate baking squares on top.  Refrigerate until ready to serve.

*You can make brownies from scratch if you so choose.

Whenever I make these, I typically make a half sheet pan (or jelly roll pan) as pictured above to take to a gathering.  You need a double-batch of 9x13 brownies to make that much.
