White Chocolate Pomegranate Bark

17 Nov

It’s been quite the weekend. It all started off so well, and with some standard Saturday chores went so wrong.

You see, our washing machine broke. There are jumbo fans drying the carpets, and the contents of our closet now reside in the living room. We went glamping in the den to escape the fans.

So when I told my husband I really wanted to make something for the blog this weekend, he looked around, then back at me with a mix of panic and concern. Enter this recipe.

I’m actually not sure it qualifies as a recipe. It’s just melted chocolate with toppings. But we’re rolling with it. When life breaks your washing machine, get a strong drink and make white chocolate bark.

You’re going to start by halving a pomegranate and extracting the seeds. This is probably the most difficult part. I put mine in a bowl of water and worked out the seeds with my fingers.

This leaves you with a pile of pomegranate flesh and a bowl full of seeds.

Once you melt the chocolate, spread it onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. I had less chocolate so used a smaller pan. Again, we’re rolling with it.

After that, it’s just a matter of sprinkling your toppings. I threw some chocolate sprinkles and (gasp) a little sea salt on mine. It was just the right balance between the rich white chocolate and the tang of the salt and pomegranate.

I highly recommend for your holiday celebrations, or the next time you need a quick pick me up.

White Chocolate Pomegranate Bark

Yields one 8 x 13 baking sheet of bark

Ingredients

1 lb white chocolate

1 pomegranate, deseeded

1 tbsp chocolate sprinkles (optional)

sprinkle of sea salt (optional)

Directions

Cut pomegranate in half and deseed in a bowl of water. Discard skin and wash seeds throughly to remove other pieces of pomegranate skin.

Melt white chocolate in a sauce pan over medium-low heat. Stir the whole time to keep the chocolate from burning. As soon as the chocolate is melted, remove from heat and pour over parchment paper into a baking sheet. You can spread over the entire sheet, or make it smaller for thicker bark.

Next, sprinkle pomegranate seeds and other toppings to your liking. Refrigerate for at least an hour, or until chocolate is hard. Break into pieces and store in refrigerator. Enjoy!

    How food can look so pretty! Makes me not want to eat it, but then I can’t resist not to eat it… Tell David that Pomegranates was one of our papi’s ( grandpa) favorite fruit. This made me think of him and I sitting in the back porch plucking the seeds off the pomegranate to eat, thank you.

      What a great story! Fresh pomegranates in the backyard sound divine, I’ll definitely tell David. Thanks for sharing Misty!
