2-Ingredient Chocolate Pomegranate Cups Recipe Is Almost Too Pretty to Eat

"Serve these chocolate pomegranate cups and the holidays – and clean eating – have never looked so festive!" says Rachel Maser, mom of four and founder/creator of the clean eating blog, Clean Food Crush®, despite some rumors, pomegranate seeds can be eaten. "And they are good for you, too! So eat the entire aril and seed ... no spitting allowed!"

How beautiful would these chocolate pomegranate Christmas candies look on your dessert table or on your holiday cookie tray? With the health benefits of dark chocolate, you'll feel good about eating them, too. (Everything in moderation!)

Recipe Notes

  • Note: To easily remove the pomegranate seeds, fill a large bowl with 1/3 of water. Score four lines from top to bottom to quarter the pomegranate and submerge the quarters in the water. Gently release the seeds with your hands. The pith will float and the seeds will sink, so remove the pith and discard, then drain the seeds. Pat seeds dry with paper towels.
  • Store them in an airtight container for up to three days.

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Line a mini muffin-tin with mini cupcake liners. Pour about 2 teaspoonfuls of melted chocolate into each cup.
  2. Top the cups with a spoonful of pomegranate arils.
  3. Using a spoon, swirl melted chocolate all over the seeds.
  4. Refrigerate for 15 minutes or until the chocolate sets. Pop them out of the tin, unwrap and arrange on a large platter. Decorate with rosemary sprigs for a festive touch.
