Beautiful Granddaughter dreamed up this recipe. It’s delicious, simple, and she tossed it together in about twenty minutes (she’s ten years old) and let it chill in the freezer for about two hours. It made a couple of inch thick bars, about five by seven inches. We sliced the bars to serve in sensible portions.
Ingredients are simple enough:
Pot boiling water, with an empty pot to be placed above
1 cup chocolate chips
½ cup nutella
½ cup whole milk (could be full fat cream)
Pomegranate seeds (she ran out of patience after about ¼ cup)
Shredded coconut or sparkly sugar
Once the water is boiling, place the empty pot above it, being sure that the top pot doesn’t touch the water. Add chocolate chips and nutella. Use a spatula to stir from time to time, till chocolate chips are melted. Once they smoothly mix, add the milk or cream. Stir to combine into a smooth mix.
Fold in pomegranate seeds, then pour into moulds. We happened to have silicone moulds, about three inches by seven inches.
At this point BG would have liked to have sprinkled shredded coconut on top, but alas, the cupboard was bare. We did have some fancy, iridescent sugar crystals, so she decorated the chocolate bars with that. Pop into freezer to chill about two hours.
Just before serving, slice with a sharp knife. The result is ganache like, but studded with tangy morsels of pomegranate.
These were just the dessert. For dinner she made us Looee's Spaghetti with Meat Sauce. It is wonderful to have a granddaughter after my own heart…
|These slice easily, but don't be too greedy. They're very rich.|
