Valentines Day Coconut & Chocolate Yogurt Bar...

Valentines Day Coconut & Chocolate Yogurt Bark

Who has Valentines Day plans?!

Ya, neither do Adam and I.

I asked him jokingly the other day what he was getting me for Valentines Day, and he said “oh, I thought we were going to save our money for our vacation?”

And I was like, “oh yea totally. No. That was a joke. I didn’t want anything! lol. Valentines Day is dumbbbb.”

I think he believed me…

Actually i’m not bothered. He did ask me what I wanted and I looked around the apartment for about 15 minutes hemming and hawing, until he was like, ‘okay there is literally nothing that you need.’ So I told him I want flowers. I love a good bouquet of flowers.

Personally, I like making a cute Valentines Day breakfast and cuddling all morning in bed, while Winston meows and tries to sit on our faces. It’s the definition of romance.

Last year I made these Valentines Day Overnight Oats, and they were a hit! Both with Adam, andddd the Internets (my real true love). In fact, those overnight oats are one of the biggest sources of traffic that my blog gets, which to me is kind of strange. A Valentines Day recipe blowing up during Halloween? Just didn’t make sense.

Anyway, I thought it would be fun to do another holiday-inspired recipe, which is where thisย Coconut & Chocolate Yogurt Bark comes in!

I’ve been seeing these recipes around the web for a while, and have wanted to make them for such a long time! The last bark I ate was dark chocolate and pumpkin seeds, and it was so good I ate the entire bag in a couple of days. I couldn’t let that happen again, so I needed a healthier version.

A couple pointers for this recipe that now I know for next time:

1. Spread the bark out thinner than I did. I should have done it on a flat tray, rather than in a pan. It’s pretty thick which makes it harder to bite.

2. I used pomegranate seeds which seemed like a delicious choice (and is!) but they aren’t as delicious frozen as they are fresh. Since you need to freeze this bark, I would suggest even tryingย a raspberry jam/puree, and spreading that on top with the chocolate chips.

I would feel like I was scamming you if I didn’t share these insights, and TBH all of the other bark recipes I’ve seen online don’t warn you of these outcomes. I’ve seen bark recipes that use pistachios as a topping, and I feel like you could easily crack your teeth right open on a frozen pistachio!

Regardless of all that, I really do like this bark. I crunch on it while I cook dinner for Adam and I, and its the best little snack.

Ingredients
  • 2 cups Coconut Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 1/3 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
Servings: pan
Instructions
  1. Cover a flat tray with parchment paper. In a bowl, mix together the Greek yogurt, a quarter of the pomegranate seeds (or raspberries if you choose to use those), and a quarter of the chocolate chips
  2. Spread it out onto a tray, about 1/4 of an inch thick. I wouldn't go any thicker than that otherwise it will be hard to bite!
  3. Cover the yogurt with the rest of the toppings. Place in the freezer for 2-3 hours.
  4. When it's time to cut it, take the bark out with the parchment paper. Give it 2-3 minutes to slightly thaw. Cut on a chopping board and enjoy! Store in a container in your freezer

    Oh my word, this looks amazing! Love the chocolate and berry (okay, seed) mix for Valentine’s Day. And I checked out those Valentine’s overnight oats. They sound/look awesome, too. Isn’t it funny which posts end up becoming most popular?
