I’m always on the lookout for fun holiday snacks, as evidenced by these thanksgiving snacks for kids.

When I came across the idea for pomegranate chocolate bark, I was immediately thinking about what else I could add.

I actually don’t have any pomegranate bark recipes like this yet.

We have some delicious vegan edible cookie dough and 3 ingredient vegan peanut butter cookies, but nothing like this, with melted chocolate.

Like yogurt bark, I love to add fun and nutritious toppings.

While most people add pistachios, I decided to go with peanuts and a dash of honey in these dark chocolate pomegranate bites.
