Super Simple Salted Chocolate Ginger Bark with Pomegranate Seeds

Salted Chocolate Ginger Bark with Pomegranate Seeds

Super simple Christmas bark can be prepared in a matter of minutes.

12 ounces bittersweet chocolate (60% cacao), broken into 1-inch pieces
2 tablespoons minced crystallized (candied) ginger
Coarse sea salt
½ cup pomegranate seeds

1. Place the chocolate pieces in a medium pan and melt over moderate heat. Stir until chocolate is smooth. Remove from heat and stir in ginger.

2. Transfer mixture to a 2-quart baking dish and spread evenly.

3. Refrigerate until the bark is no longer warm and is soft enough to gently press the pomegranate seeds into the chocolate. Season the bark with coarse salt.  

    4. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or until the bark is hard. Gently break (being careful not to crush the pomegranate seeds) into serving pieces. Keep refrigerated until serving time. Bark will last about 5 days.
