Last week I fell into an abundance of pomegranates… thanks to my sister-in-law! We had a lot of pomegranates and while my favorite way to enjoy them is to eat them as is, I also love the combination of chocolate and pomegranates together.

Growing up my mom would always get a bag of chocolate covered pomegranates for the holidays and my sister and I enjoyed eating them so much! We would eat one at a time and eat them slowly!

This bark is a great memory of those special treats from my childhood. I love how the dark chocolate isn’t too sweet and the pomegranates burst in your mouth when you eat it.

This is also the easiest dessert ever! It only has 3 ingredients (two really) and is wonderful to put out for guests during the holidays. It keeps best in the fridge and can stay there for up to 5 days. So delicious!

What You’ll Need

I hope you enjoy this bark as much as I do. What other variations of bark do you like?

  • 8 oz dark chocolate (66% cacao or darker)
  • 1 cup pomegranate arils divided
  • ½ tsp flaked sea salt


  1. Prepare a small baking sheet or shallow pan with parchment paper and set aside.

  2. Open your pomegranate and separate the pith from the arils. You will need 1 cup of arils for this recipe. Eat the others!

  3. In a small heat proof bowl, break your chocolate into pieces and place in bowl. Set it over a small pot of simmering water to create a double boiler and mix chocolate occasionally until just melted. Do not over heat.

  4. Take the chocolate off the pot of water and stir in ⅔ of the pomegranate arils until combined well.

  5. Pour and spread evenly in the parchment paper lined sheet. Then sprinkle the top with the remaining arils and sea salt.

  6. Pop in fridge to set for about 30 minutes. Then break with your hands into bark pieces. Keep in fridge for up to 5 days.
