One of the perils of Pinterest is the overwhelming amount of food porn. I collect all the
pretty pictures and recipes of treats I might make someday on a board called Play With Your Food but last week I saw a recipe for Pomegranate and Dark Chocolate Bark. I’ve always been a whiz at coating things with chocolate so this weekend aided by my youngest son’s girlfriend, Kate, I made this recipe straight out of the New York Times.
Only four ingredients: dark chocolate, pomegranate seeds, candied ginger and coarse sea salt.
Our first attempt turned out pretty well. It tasted great but looked a bit lumpy. We doubled the recipe (the original recipe called for only a half of bag of chocolate chips), probably added a tad too much candied ginger and we melted the chocolate in the microwave. Our main problem was the chocolate hardening before we could spread it out on the wax paper (we used that instead of parchment paper). We stuck the pan in the oven for a few minutes (200 degrees). Not sure if that did anything to help the cause.
It was FANTASTIC!!!!!
Pete, big show off that he is, whipped up a batch of chocolate covered ginger snaps and nuts after Kate and I were done with the bark. Those were pretty good too!
Has anyone ever made this bark recipe? Would love to hear how yours turned out!
