DARK CHOCOLATE POMEGRANATE GINGER BARK

Here's an easy dessert you can make quickly (10 minutes plus chilling) if you need a dessert in a hurry. I always have chocolate on hand, of course, and pomegranate seeds. I use the seeds in salad every day. Great source of anti-oxidants. Crystallized ginger is also easy to keep. So think of this Dark Chocolate Pomegranate Ginger Bark as a 'healthy' dessert! This would make a great Valentine's Day dessert or take it to the office to share with friends!
