We once came across Haagen Daz's special Pomegranate Dark Chocolate Ice Cream. The color was not inviting and the flavor wasn't fresh, but the concept was good. When my in-laws were in town, I purchased a nice selection of pomegranates from Costco and watched as my husband and his father took it apart. I'm sure they will both remember to wear an apron, but not to wear a white shirt, in the future. Meanwhile, my mother shaved some fine European Dark Chocolates that my in-laws had brought as a gift. A regular cheese grater works well. The key is choosing exceptional chocolates. And dark chocolates in this case are highly recommended over milk chocolates. I dished out scoops of ice cream (Publix Premium Vanilla being the preferred), sprinkled generous amounts of the fresh fruit on top and served it at the table with the shaved chocolates and whole bars of the chocolates, and any extra pomegranate seeds so people could choose their own amount of toppings.
One thing that makes a meal a success is the participation. The entire family getting together and working on this dessert made it more special.
