Pomegranate & Dark Chocolate Bites
So, um, this recipe is ridiculously simple, but I'd feel guilty if I kept it all to myself. We are talking three very simple ingredients, minimal prep time, and maximum flavor.
Pomegranate + Dark Chocolate + Sea Salt + 5 to 8 minutes of your time = FABULOUS LITTLE TREATS
I basically put pomegranate into everything possible. It's bright, tastes great, and adds a dash of drama to any dish.
Once, I insisted a catering manager at an event I attended call the chef so I could tell him that I thought putting pomegranate seeds and mint into a simple fattoush salad was inspired. I really do appreciate good food at events (it can often be so blah) and anytime anyone adds pomegranate I feel I've found a kindred spirit...but I realize now that calling the chef may have been slight overkill. But only slight!
I'd recommend using a high quality dark chocolate for this easy, little recipe. Poms are in season, in the Northern Hemisphere, September to February (Aussies, sorry, you have to wait till March). So, this little treat would make a great Valentine's Day gift - as opposed to a foil wrapped (delicious, but not-so-great-for-you) chocolate heart.
* I used Lindt 70%
