Mini Pomegranate Chocolate Ganache Tarts are the perfect bite- sized dessert for the holidays! For this month's Progressive Eats Dinner Party!
Mini desserts are the perfect way to try a bite of all of the wonderful holiday goodies that we love so much. These little pies are easy to make at the last minute. They really take about 10 minutes to put together. A word of caution though, they are addicting!
I made a simple ganache and added a touch of pomegranate juice and then garnished them with fresh pomegranate arils.
Fiesta was so kindly sent me a few serving pieces for the holidays and I love this Square Handled Serving Tray. I love all of the bright colors that make my holiday table gorgeous! I might have a new dish obsession. I've mentioned before that I am partial to products made in the USA!
Speaking of which, I have to tell you an awesome story! We were watching Alaska: The Last Frontier on Sunday night, just like we always do and low and behold, they had one of our Kaycee Cutters! We sold some to a store in Alaska a few years ago and I guess the Kilcher clan thought it was just as handy as we do. It was just an awesome thing to see the product that my husband invented on one of our favorite tv shows. I snapped a photo of the tv with my phone to share on Facebook and I'm just so proud, I thought I would share it here too!
Okay back to the desserts! These Pomegranate Chocolate Tarts Ganache Tarts are so easy and delicious that you must try them, and everything else on this fabulous Progressive Eats Menu!

Welcome to another edition of Progressive Eats, our virtual version of a progressive dinner party. If you're unfamiliar with the concept, a progressive dinner involves going from house to house, enjoying a different course at each location. With Progressive Eats, a theme is chosen each month, members share recipes suitable for a delicious meal or party, and you can hop from blog to blog to check them out.
We have a core group of 12 bloggers, but we will always need substitutes and if there is enough interest would consider additional groups. To see our upcoming themes and how you can participate, please check out the schedule at Creative Culinary or contact Barb for more information.
This month's theme is Great Holiday Desserts hosted by Jenni Field at Pastry Chef Online. Cookies, cakes, pies and more for your holiday party planning!
