I have been in love with pomegranates for years.  In the last few years have become a little trendy due to the potential health benefits.  For me, though, they’re just the delicious tart jewels that my grandmother always served from a bowl during the holidays.

After gathering up the courage to try one as a very picky teen I was immediately hooked.  Since then I look forward to pomegranates coming into season each fall so that I can stock my refrigerator with the dark red fruits.  Getting all the arils out of the pomegranate was never my favorite part, but now you can even buy containers of fresh pomegranate arils from the refrigerated case at the grocery store.

Pomegranate Chocolate Bark Recipe

A few years ago I was experimenting with different recipes to find new ways to include either the arils or the juice.  I sprinkled them on salads, used a few to garnish cupcakes, and would use the juice to make a delicious glaze for chicken.  But my favorite discovery came when I was putting together my yearly food gift baskets for our friends and family.

As I poured out the chocolate for the bark I was making it struck me that not only would it taste great to sprinkle pomegranate arils across the bark, but that the bright, juicy gems would look beautiful contrasted against both white and dark chocolate.  So I pulled a few from the refrigerator to confirm my guess and was pleased with the results.  They’ve been one of my favorite winter treats ever since.

Feel free to sprinkle or not sprinkle with a little sea salt, too; it really makes chocolate flavors pop.  And you don’t have to do holiday-inspired shapes, like those above.  This works just fine poured out and broken into irregular pieces like in traditional chocolate bark recipes.  Whatever suits your fancy!
