Yes! Most chocolate bark recipes use pistachios, and dark chocolate, pomegranates and pistachios are a lovely mixture. You can also use almonds or cashews id you’d like.
You can store homemade chocolate bark at room temperature in an airtight glass container. I recommend using it within 3-5 days. You also store in the freezer for up to 3-6 months in an airtight bag or container.
