These pretty little Chocolate Covered Pomegranate Drops are fun, festive and make for a lovely non-cookie, holiday dessert.
The key to making this ‘recipe’ a success is being sure that your pomegranate seeds are dry. If there is too much moisture on the seeds your chocolate will seize, and your drops will be a flop. I like laying the seeds out on a clean dish towel and letting them sit for a couple of hours on the counter.
Biting into these little Chocolate Covered Pomegranate drops is pure heaven. The pom seeds burst in your mouth and the rich, dark chocolate melts all around them. #SOGood
Try serving them with a glass of champagne (or seltzer); lots of bubbles popping all around, like a party in your mouth!
Chocolate Covered Pomegranate Drops
- 6 oz dark chocolate at least 70% cocoa
- 1 cup pomegranate seeds DRY
- Line a rimmed baking sheet with a silicone mat or some parchment paper.
- Make sure that your pomegranate seeds are bone dry. Too much moisture will cause the chocolate to seize, so dont skip this step.
- Melt your chocolate in a double boiler or in the microwave. Once the chocolate has melted toss in your pomegranate seeds and gently toss until all the seeds are coated with the chocolate.
- Scoop about a tablespoon of your ooey-gooey chocolate coated seeds into little puddles on a silicone mat or some parchment paper.. Repeat until finished.
- Pop tray into the fridge for about one hour or until set. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
This sounds great, I WILL be trying this today!

Dani, I made these over the holiday with my 10 year old daughter and they were terrific! All the best in 2013!

These were so easy and SO delicious! I loved the burst of juice you get from the pomegranate seeds. Be careful though, they are addictive!
So glad you liked them. And I have to agree… they are rather addictive!
Have you ever tried this recipe using frozen pomegranate seeds? I wonder if its possible to get them dry enough.
I haven’t, I would be worries that they would let off too much water once they defrost.

I made these and took half the recipe to work and my co-workers loved them! They were super easy to make and taste SO good. I’ve kept the other half of the batch for my husband and me 🙂 Have you ever used any other fruit, such as blueberries or strawberries (diced up)?
Has anyone tried freezing these? I picked a bunch of poms, and need to use them before they dry up. I would like to make a few batches of these for the upcoming holidays.
You can freeze them for sure. But when they defrost you need to eat fairly quickly because there tends to be a bit of condensation.
