It's the holiday season, which means lots of great food in good company. But who says great tasting food can't also be packed with nutrients?
If you love chocolate I promise you will love this dark chocolate bark. It is super easy to make (you don't even need an oven) and it tastes delicious. The best part is it's full of antioxidants and healthy fats from the addition of pomegranate seeds, coconut, and almonds.
This makes for a great handmade gift or a 'healthier' dessert option at your next holiday party.
1 cup dark chocolate, chopped (I used 70%)
1 + 1/4 cup pomegranate seeds
1/2 cup slivered almonds (or crushed pistachios)
1/2 cup flaked unsweetened coconut
Melt the chocolate in a double broiler. You can also use a pot with boiling water and place a glass bowl on top to melt the chocolate (just make sure the glass bowl isn't touching the water, it should be hovering above).
Once melted mix half the seeds, almonds, and coconut into the chocolate.
Spread mixture evenly using a spatula on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and place the remaining seeds, coconut, and slivered almonds on top.
Place baking sheet in fridge for 3-4 hours to allow chocolate to harden.
Cut into your desired size bark pieces and enjoy!
Cheers to happy and healthy eating (that includes chocolate). :)
