For the Pomegranate Frosting
Prepare the Bars
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat sugar, margarine, cream cheese, and salt.
Add in vanilla extract and egg yolk. Beat until smooth.
Reduce mixer to low and stir in flour. Gently add in arils and white chocolate and stir by hand.
Gently press batter into a greased 9x13-inch pan. Bake for 40-45 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.
Yields 20 bars.
To make this dessert non-dairy, use non-dairy margarine and a non-dairy cream cheese, like Tofutti.
Prepare the Frosting
In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat margarine. Add in salt and one and a half cups confectioners’ sugar.
Reduce mixer to low, and stir in pomegranate juice and food coloring, if using. (Food coloring will make the frosting a stronger pink.)
Add in remaining confectioners’ sugar and beat on high until creamy. Spread onto cooled pomegranate bars.
