Ingredients

1 large or 2 medium pomegranates, enough to yield scant
1 cup (8 ounces) pomegranate arils
2/3 cup (4 ounces) organic bittersweet chocolate chips, such as Ghiradelli 60%
¼ teaspoon curry powder (optional)
¼ cup fresh spearmint or peppermint, stemmed and julienned


Preparation

Score the pomegranate and place in a bowl of water. Break it open under water to let the arils sink to the bottom and the membrane float to the top. Pour through a colendar, rinse, and set the pomegranate arils on paper towels to absorb any excess moisture. Melt chocolate chips in a heavy-bottomed small saucepan over low-to-medium heat stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes.** Remove saucepan from the burner. Add pomegranate seeds and stir in curry powder, if desired. Use a fork to scoop out small chocolate-covered clusters, and place each on a wax paper lined plate. Garnish with mint. Refrigerate until chocolate is firm, about 15 minutes.

Substitutions

* 2/3 cup (4 ounces) high quality dark chocolate, chopped fine, may replace the chocolate chips.

From: lmaris

These were very good. They had a little water in them from the Pomegranate arils, but everyone really liked them.

So delicious! Just made them today, and the whole family is enoying them. This will be a new favorite during pomegranate season!

Trader Joes sells pomegranate seeds already separated. Can these be used? Does anyone know if they are separated without the use of any chemicals?

From: loismiddleton

These are the best thing ever! I've made two batches so far - one plain and one with curry powder - wonderful snacks!

(waiterock - Personally, I think the Trader Joe's pomegranate seeds could be used - they might not be as juicy as freshly separated ones but should be delicious anyway!)

From: Rejeana

Made these earlier this year. They were a hit and quite simple to do once I watched the video.

From: nesears

Fantastic !! The juicy surprise inside is what makes it special. Everyone who has tasted wants the recipe.

This recipe is a KEEPER! My market sells the fresh ariels in a box-a bit more expensive but makes this really easy to prepare!! I also made a batch using blueberries. Great treats to bring to a party!
