Pomegranate White Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’ve never tried combining pomegranate with chocolate before, although I know raspberry goes very well with chocolate. Back in December, I stumbled on Pomegranate Double Chocolate Chip Cookies by Michelle at Taste as You Go (which looked lovely) and saw that they were inspired by Pomegranate White Chocolate Chunk Cookies by Two Peas and their Pod. Both looked delicious, and I knew I’d end up making at least one of them. So, here are my version, too late for Christmas, but never mind! They were really tasty, but the pomegranate seeds got slightly lost amongst the white chocolate chips, so I’d put a few more in each cookie next time!

White Chocolate Fudge (almost)

I’ve only tried to make fudge one time in my life, about 20 years ago in a home economics class. It was chocolate fudge, and it went so wrong that everyone congratulated me on the lovely treacle toffee I had made. For Christmas, I was lucky enough to receive Gregg’s Favourite Puddings by Gregg Wallace (the pudding-loving Cockney greengrocer and Masterchef judge). For the first recipe I tried from his book, I decided to try to right the wrongs of the past and make white chocolate fudge. Gregg’s recipe for “simple chocolate fudge” actually uses plain chocolate, but I didn’t have any of that, and I had white chocolate left over, so… white it was. This recipe wasn’t 100% successful (read on to find out…) but was a tasty failure.

White Chocolate Chunk Cookies

These cookies are pretty much what you’d expect from their name. They don’t look gourmet, but distinctly homemade, whether that’s a good or a bad thing is up to you!

You could use chocolate chips, but I thought it would be more indulgent to use nice big chunks of chocolate. The main flavour comes from the chocolate, so you  might as well go for good quality. I used Green & Blacks.

Nutmeg, Cream Cheese and White Chocolate Palmiers

These nutmeg, cream cheese and white chocolate palmiers were inspired by these palmiers from Cookin’ Canuck. I’ve never made palmiers before although I’ve wanted to for a while. They looked easy to make and they were really, although I might need a bit of practise at rolling the puff pastry up into the palmier shape. My finished specimens lacked visual finesse, but were very tasty. They weren’t as chocolatey as I imagined; the main flavours are the cream cheese and nutmeg.
