Dark Chocolate Pomegranate Coconut Bark

That's a lot of goodness in one title.

Any dark chocolate lovers out there? If so, this is the treat for you! Even if you're a milk chocolate person, like myself, its still a great treat to get your sugar fix in but in a healthier way. Have you ever tried the Brookside dark chocolate covered pomegranates or blueberries? Take my word, they are to die for. I could eat the entire bag. I love the combination of pomegranate and chocolate so when I found this recipe it just spoke to me. The 'pop' of pomegranate when you eat it just makes it that much better. This is a great snack to take to your fellow dark chocolate friends for the holidays, or eat the entire cookie sheet and not feel TOO guilty about it (well, when compared to a bowl of cookie dough... :)

DIRECTIONS


  1. Melt chocolate as directed on packet, either by microwave or double boiler.
