A KosherEye Signature Recipe
This rich chocolate bark is irresistible and has so many flavor variations. It is one of the most popular desserts at our table at YomTov and year round.
Our dark chocolate bark is a no-bake confection, and can be ready for the fridge in 5 minutes.
10 ozs. of bittersweet chocolate, (such as Schmerling or Alprose brand), broken into 1-inch pieces
1/2 to 1-cup pomegranate flavored packaged Craisins
2 tablespoons fresh or dried grated orange rind
Pinch of sea salt
1 teaspoon corn syrup
Line a 9 x 13 baking sheet with parchment or waxed paper or use a silicone-baking mat.
Put the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high until it just starts to melt, about 30-45 seconds. Stir with a silicone spatula until the chocolate is completely smooth and melted. Do not overcook; Heat in additional 5-10 second increments, if necessary. This process of melting the chocolate can also be done in a double boiler. Gently stir half of the pomegranate seeds, orange rind, corn syrup, and salt into the warm chocolate. With a silicone spatula, spread chocolate/pomegranate mixture evenly onto the baking sheet.
Sprinkle additional Craisins on top; Gently push down into the chocolate layer with spatula.
Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight, until chocolate has set completely.
Once set, remove from refrigerator and break into pieces. Serve in a beautiful crystal or glass bowl.
Lovely as part of Yom Tov dessert! Addictive anytime!
Optional: Chocolate bark is scrumptious any time of year- Add any combination of dried fruit or snacks such as raisins, cranberries, pretzels, mini marshmallows or nuts such as peanuts, almonds, pecans or cashews.
