roasted peanuts, roughly chopped into small pieces
Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Using a double broiler, melt the dark chocolate chips until completely smooth, mixing frequently. See notes below for double broiler method.
Poor the melted chocolate onto the prepared baking sheet.
Gently tap the tray on the counter-top to even out the thickness of the mixture. Feel free to tilt the tray back and forth to spread out the chocolate to desired thickness. But be sure to keep it thick enough so it remains a bark when cut into pieces.
Evenly sprinkle on pomegranate seeds and the chopped roasted peanuts. Press them down gently.
Refrigerate for about an hour or two until the chocolate is completely firm. Break the bark into squares and enjoy! Store them in the fridge.
Storage - This bark contains fresh pomegranate seeds. Therefore, it should be stored in the fridge and will not last as long as long as other barks with non-perishable ingredients.Chocolate - I prefer to use vegan Enjoy Life Dark Chocolate Chips , which come in 9 oz. bags (unless you buy their gigantic 5 lb bag). This is about 1 1/2 to 2 cups chocolate chips. Chocolate bark is very forgiving, so an additional ounce or two of chocolate (or less) will still work depending on the exact size bag you use for chocolate chips. Just be sure the thickness of the bark after spreading out the chocolate is thick enough to handle the toppings (i.e. not too brittle).To Setup A Double Broiler-
Find one medium size pot and a metal bowl. The size of these two items should be such that when the metal bowl is placed on top of the pot, the two are nested together.
Add about 2 inches of water to a saucepan and simmer on low-medium heat.
Add the chocolate chips to another metal bowl.
Set the bowl on top of the pot with the simmering water so that the two pieces nest together. Note that the bottom of the metal bowl should not be touching the simmering water when nested together. If this happens, remove some of the water. The steam from the simmering water is being used to heat up the chocolate chips.
Stir frequently until the chocolate chips are completely melted.
