These pomegranate dark chocolate bites are ridiculously simple!

Prep Time 8 minutes
Total Time 8 minutes


  • 2 ½ cups pomegranate seeds
  • 5.25 ounces (150 grams) high-quality dark chocolate
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt


  1. Across 12 muffin cups, sprinkle a single layer of pomegranate seeds.
  2. Melt the dark chocolate in a small bowl in the microwave. Check often to make sure it’s not burning.
  3. Add the melted dark chocolate to a piping bag or plastic bag. Snip off the end, so a small stream of chocolate can come out. 
  4. Pipe a crisscross pattern of chocolate across the pomegranate seeds. Add another layer of pomegranate seeds, then more chocolate, and then the last layer of pomegranate seeds. 
  5. Finish with a pinch of sea salt on each of the pomegranate chocolate bites.
  6. Refrigerate for at least one hour before serving. After removing from the fridge, serve immediately.

How to Choose the Best Pomegranates

The best pomegranates are a dark pink to dark red color and have firm, unblemished skin. If they have soft spots, obvious bruises, or dimpled skin they are past their prime. If they are a light pink color it means they were picked before their prime and will likely be bitter.

When are Pomegranates in Season

Pomegranate season is actually quite short - it usually just lasts from September to November. However, pomegranates keep for several weeks so are often good well into January.

This was really yummy but with paper liners, it was hard to have pomegranates be the bottom layer. They got kind of leaky and messy. Next time I would probably put the chocolate down first, one layer of pomegranates, then chocolate again.

I have 100% dark chocol bar. What AltErnatives and how much quantity can i use To make it a little sweeter?


Friday 15th of January 2021

You could add a little honey, agave, or granulated sugar to make it sweeter. I've never done this method, but I'd suggest trying a tablespoon.
