Holiday Chocolate Bark

Holiday Chocolate Bark

Eat seasonally to support local agriculture and to cut back on foods that require long travel and storage. This simple dessert features in-season pomegranate and oranges.


  • 6 ounces dark chocolate
  • ¼ cup chopped pistachios or chopped roasted peanuts
  • ¼ cup pomegranate seeds
  • 2 tablespoons orange zest


  1. Over a double boiler or in a bowl in a microwave, melt chocolate until smooth. On a waxed paper-lined baking sheet, spread melted chocolate in a thin layer.
  2. Sprinkle nuts, pomegranate seeds and orange zest over the chocolate. Very gently press toppings into the chocolate (but not all the way through).
  3. Refrigerate for 2-4 hours for the chocolate to set again. Break into shards.
