Dark Chocolate Covered Pomegranate Drops | Easy Holiday Dessert

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!

Ingredients:

  • 6 oz dark chocolate (at least 70% cocoa)
  • 1 cup pomegranate seeds, DRY

Directions:

  1. Line a rimmed baking sheet with a silicone mat or some parchment paper.
