This is probably one of the best, easiest and most delicious recipes ever! And it makes an absolutely great present for New Years! Wherever you go tonight to celebrate, just make this and offer it to everybody, they will love it. Not only for its taste but also for its simplicity and meaning. Pomegranate is the symbol of good fortune and fertility and is the best present to celebrate a new year and a new beginning. All you need is some dark chocolate and pomegranate seeds! Melt it, spread it on a pan, sprinkle the seeds and with some pretty wrapping paper, a loving ‘thank you’ message and a great deal of good will, you have the perfect New Years Day gift.
Equipment: baking pan, wrapping paper, parchment paper, bain-marie (a pot full of water and a plate/bowl on top where the chocolate melts)
Prep. Time approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes (1 hour is for it to cool), Serves up to 10 people
500 gr dark chocolate
70 gr pomegranate seeds
Melt the chocolate in bain-marie in very low heat. Take a baking pan and cover it with parchment paper. Spread the chocolate evenly to the whole surface. Let it cool for a bit and sprinkle the pomegranate seeds. I use frozen ones I keep for salads or desserts. Put the pan in the fridge and cool for 1 hour or more if possible.
Take the pan out and break the chocolate randomly. Take some wrapping paper of your choice, some parchment paper and wrap it up like a present. Keep it in the fridge. For a personal touch, take small cartons and write your wishes for every single person separately.
And don’t forget to have a great time and a Happy New Year!
