  • 1 package (12 ounces) dark chocolate chips
  • 1 cup pomegranate seeds, patted dry


  1. In a microwave, melt chocolate chips; stir until smooth. Stir in pomegranate seeds.
  2. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. Store between layers of waxed paper in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Test Kitchen tips
  • One large pomegranate will yield about 1 cup seeds.
  • When melting chocolate, stop heating the chocolate before the last of the chocolate melts. The residual heat will melt the remaining chocolate as you stir. This will help prevent scorching.
  • Sprinkle with toasted coconut or ground almonds after spooning onto waxed paper for more texture and flavor.
