Pomegranate Pistachio Crostini

Pomegranate seeds intrigue me, so I sliced French bread, smeared it with cream cheese, and added seeds, pistachios and chocolate. —Elisabeth Larsen, Pleasant Grove, Utah

    Wow, how does this not have more reviews!?!? It was amazing! New family favorite for sure! Pretty much followed the recipe but I had to use 3 Tbsp butter to cover all of my toasts (I guess I have a heavy hand) and I used milk chocolate Hershey's bar (because I had it on hand). I also popped them under the broiler rather than then oven. My daughter (7) gave it 10 thumbs up and said it's her new favorite dish. Delicious!
