This was my nephew's inspiration! I thought he'd be thrilled to help me make chocolate candies this year - chocolate-covered pretzels, animal crackers, mini PB Ritz cracker sandwiches - you name it. Nope - he wanted to do fruit instead! We tried apples and oranges, then he suggested pomegranates. I didn't have any on hand, but did give it a try a few days later. Not bad! Here's the recipe:
adapted from food.com
2 large pomegranates
1-12 oz. bag semi-sweet chocolate chips or coating chocolate
Drain seeds in colander and lay them out on paper towel-lined cookie sheets; place in refrigerator overnight to dry completely. (Important! Otherwise, the moisture may cause the chocolate to seize.)
Melt chocolate in double boiler or in microwave. Gently fold in pomegranates seeds. Spoon small clumps onto wax paper or into paper candy cups.
Store in refrigerator no longer than a few days.
