Fresh Recipe: Chocolate Pomegranate Drops

Thanks to the blackhole that is the internet, I found a simple, new recipe that I’ll be using for the holidays, and I couldn’t just keep it to myself. Chocolate pomegranate drops: the perfect marriage between sweet and tart. The best part (besides the taste) is that it actually only takes 5 minutes to make.

Chocolate Pom Drops

All you need is:

  • 6 oz. of dark or milk chocolate (I cheat and use chocolate chips)
  • 1 cup of pomegranate seeds

This recipe will make about 9-12 drops. To start, either melt the chocolate in the microwave or in a double boiler as seen in the video below. Mix in your pom seeds until well coated, use a spoon to scoop out tablespoon size pieces, place on a tray lined with wax paper, chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours, and you’re done. Voila! How easy was that? As you bite into these drops of heaven, beware of the pom juice that drips down your chin, and resist the urge to eat all 12 in one sitting.

If you try this recipe, share your end results with me in the comments below, and enjoy!

  1. Amazing! We have a pomegranate tree and this is a GREAT idea! We juice most of them but also freeze the seeds for using throughout the year. I’ll save some to use for this!

    1. I’m actually jealous you have a pomegranate tree. That would be amazing to have fresh pom juice all year round. Let me know how you like them if you make them soon.

      1. Sadly, they are only ripe for a few weeks in October/November. We actually can never use them fast enough so some of them rot. It’s so sad! But we can never move … it’s hard to find a rental with a mature pomegranate tree 🙂
