These pomegranate dark chocolate bites are ridiculously simple!

Prep Time 8 minutes
Total Time 8 minutes


  • 2 1/2 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.
