Mmmmm….. I tried some chocolate covered pomegranate seeds for the first time last month. I never would have thought of something like that on my own, but they were good!
I’ve thought some about looking for them at our local natural foods store, but since my family has gone dairy free (for several different reasons) I decided not to bother.
Then, while hanging out with my guys at the dinner table, I looked over and saw a lonely pomegranate sitting in the fruit basket and it hit me…. Why don’t I try to make some at home??
And, since I had a bag of Enjoy Life dairy free, soy free, nut free, gluten free, but not taste free, chocolate chips in the pantry I decided to give it a try. And, boy, am I glad I did! This is a recipe worth sharing!
First, take out all the seeds from the pomegranate, rinse them, and pat them dry with a dish towel.
Pour a half a bag of semi sweet chocolate chips into a small sauce pan.
Melt on low heat. (I LOVE my new stove!)
Pour pomegranate seeds into the melted chocolate and mix around. Once the seeds are thoroughly covered, pour the mixture out onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Flatten the mixture out gently with your hands.
Place baking sheet in fridge to cool.
Once the chocolate hardens, which took about 20 minutes or so for me, pull the baking sheet out and break the chocolate into bite-size pieces and enjoy!
Beware: It’s hard to stop eating them once you start!
