Treat yourself to these antioxidant-rich pomegranate bites that are simple to make and packed with nutrient-filled superfoods. This simple and healthy dessert is the perfect treat to serve to friends over tea or to spoil yourself on Valentine’s Day.
Seeds from 1 pomegranate, approximately 1 cup
6 ounces (185 g) dark chocolate, 70% cocoa or higher, broken into pieces
1 teaspoon sea salt
Add 12 cupcake liners to a standard cupcake pan. Spoon about 1 teaspoon of pomegranate seeds in a single layer into each liner.
Add 3 cups of water into a saucepan and bring to a simmer. Then set a glass baking bowl on top to create a double boiler.
Add the chocolate pieces into the baking bowl of the double boiler and mix with a spatula until melted. Keep the heat low and watch diligently being careful not to allow it to burn.
Once the chocolate is melted, add about 1 tablespoon of chocolate to each pomegranate cup, just enough to cover the pomegranate seeds.
Finish with a pinch of sea salt on each pomegranate chocolate bite.
Refrigerate for at least one hour. Once set, remove each pomegranate bite from its cupcake liner and serve immediately. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for one week. Or you can freeze the bites for up to 3 months.
Makes 12 servings. Serving size: 1 cacao pomegranate bite.
