POM Bark

I got a lot of comments about those Pumpkin Truffles, and they definately got a yummmm from me! Especially after hanging out a bit in the fridge. I also brought some to a friend of mine, who sent me an email once she tried one to tell me they were outstanding, so you don't have to take my word for it :) And since I didn't just want to create a whole post dedicated to that short answer, I leave you with another treat I created to [hopefully] bring home!

Pomegranates are so gorgeous, I love the fact that they are all over right now. How can you turn down these jewels??


Ok, well maybe if you didn't know what was inside... Anyways I had picked up a few of these, and had some arils in my fridge awaiting consumption when I saw this on sale.


I've had a love/hate relationship with white chocolate throughout my life, but this stuff is pretty darn incredible. They're not kidding when they say it's made with vanilla--you can see the specks!!! Last year I had made these, so my idea this time was to make POM bark! The little bursts make for quite the interesting treat :) And very festive!


POM Bark
"Recipe" by Shannon

1 bar of really good chocolate (white or dark, i'm sold on green & blacks right now!)
1/2c arils

Chop/break apart chocolate into smaller pieces and melt in a double boiler. While this is melting, line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Once fully melted, spread chocolate on cookie sheet, sprinkle around arils, and lightly press the arils into the chocolate. Pop the sheet into the fridge to harden (mine took a few hours). Once hardened, carefully break into smaller pieces and enjoy! Keep it in the fridge until ready to serve, or to store leftover pieces.

I de-seeded (if thats the propper term) a pomegranite last night...it always looks like a murder scene when I do that...the juice gets everywhere! Am I missing some trick to it??

POM bark?? What a creative idea!

Wow - that is such a fantastic idea!

Meghann said...

You're so creative! These look great!

Lisa said...

This is great. I will have to try it. I just love pomogranates.

Gena said...

That does sound good! A while back I ran past a house with pomegranate trees (didn't know they grew around here). So many of them had over-ripened and were busted open on the ground. It broke my heart that they were going to waste!

lauren said...

great combo! I always start making tons of bark variations around the holidays. Such a great gift to put in a festive tin for co-workers, etc.

Rosiecat said...

Oh, my, I love Green and Black's Vanilla White Chocolate! I buy it at Whole Foods every time it goes on sale. I think pomegranate seeds would go really well with that white chocolate--a tart/sweet combination with cocoa butter rounding out the edges. Bravo, Shannon!

PS Has anyone tried the white chocolate chips that Whole Foods now sells? Any good?

seejessrun said...

What a great idea! I love pomegranates too, but they are sooo much work for a fruit.

GroundedFitness said...
