Crap. I’m addicted to a new show. And it’s put me in a terrible mood. Not because it’s not freaking awesome, because it is, but because it’s extremely addictive and I didn’t go to bed until 1am because I couldn’t stop watching the first three episodes from the first season. Damn you, Homeland. You’ve got me hooked.

But since I didn’t sleep that much, my attitude was a bit in the sh*tter yesterday. I wanted to do stuff but I didn’t want to do stuff. What? That doesn’t even make sense. I blame it on my monthly gift coming soon. Ew. Don’t you hate when I talk about that stuff? Jokes on you!! I’m a bit on the grumpy side. Ever wonder if anger, food cravings, and mood issues are actually due to pms or just something women have created in their own minds because of social norms. Commercials pretty much tell us to crave food and to feel bloated and grumpy, so are these feelings real or is it the good ole’ placebo effect? Riddle me that.

It snowed here. It’s cold. And icy as fuuuuu. And when it’s this cold, all I want to do is bake. And some of my favorite baked goods come from the website Health-Bent and their cookbook Primal Cravings. The other day, I made their Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Muffins, which I dropped all of into the oven as I pulled them out (awesome), then I made their Dirty Blondies. They are both to die for. I’ve been pretty much constantly full for 2 days, but I just see it as I need to chow down before I hibernate. It makes complete sense. It’s suppose to be a bad winter. My car is even creaking. And I have those huge ice mounds stuck under my wheel well. It’s cold enough that when you kick the ice mound hoping to feel the satisfaction of hearing fall to the ground, you break your toenail instead. Winter is just lovely.

I have big plans this weekend. Not really, but I actually have some sort of plans which doesn’t happen often. I don’t like doing much on the weekends, pretty much because I’m a bore. But this weekend, I’m trying a new restaurant, watching at least 5 episodes of Homeland, watch people wakeboard in the freezing cold, drink hot cider, workout, then dinner and the second Hunger Games. I’m exhausted already.

    What size baking sheet did you use for this recipe?

    1. juli says:

      It doesn’t matter, but mine was a 9×13 baking sheet. It doesn’t spread out nearly that big though

  2. Happiness at Mid Life says:

    I made those the other day and it is soooo good!!! So glad my CSA box had some pomegranates!


  3. LISA WOOD says:

    Made this tonight, and cannot tell you how much we love it! OMG! Thank you! Great job!

  4. Judy says:

    I have a side by side freezer and my cookie sheets are too large to fit into the freezer.
    It’s 21 degrees outside—would that do for setting
    the chocolate ?


    1. juli says:

      hahaha i’m sure it would!! if not, you could transfer the chocolate to a plate and freeze it on there

  5. Judy Selednik says:

    no worries–used a small pan

  6. Samantha says:

    I added a sprinkle of Himalayan sea salt–SO GOOD! What an amazing recipe!

    I also love Homeland. This is my first visit to your blog. What fun. I was searching for more ideas for pairing dark chocolate with other goodies in making my own bark. I have done chocolate with pistachios and dried cranberries or dried blueberries, Also crushed peppermint and chocolate. I am thinking about pairing toasted coconut and ground coffee with dark chocolate and was looking for other ideas to go along with chocolate and coconut. I love the idea of trying pomegranate seeds. I have some frozen pomegranate seeds from Costco—any reason why these wouldn’t work?

    1. juli says:

      That would work!

  8. Eriane Madden Brabec says:

    This recipe sounds absolutely delicious ( as do most of your recipes) and I look forward to making it soon after my wedding (Saturday the 15th). Sounds like a perfect way to stave off any dark chocolate pomegranate cravings I have (which is rather often, considering I used to have it every week as a snack and then the place stopped carrying it.)

  9. Elizabeth says:

    How would I pack as a holiday gift?
    Will it melt

    1. juli says:

      yes, you’ll have to keep it cold somehow

    Hi !
    I just found out your blog. You’re a funny lady and looks like you’re a great cook too!
    I have a question about this recipe: for the last step, we have to put it in fridge or freezer?
    Thanks 🙂
