Pomegranate is my new fruit obsession! Crunchy but sweet with a little tang of tartness. I'M IN LOVE. They're basically cranberries prettier, more delicious twin. They boast all of the benefits you want in a fruit like they're loaded with fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K, potassium. Basically all the goods.
I have always been a lover of chocolate covered strawberries so this year I thought why the hell not cover my new fruit obsession in dark chocolate as well....Ok real truth I was last minute trying to figure out what to bring to a christmas party and I had 2 pomegranates and some dark chocolate available so what do I do make dark chocolate pom cups and everyone loved them.
Sometimes the least preparation and least ingredients make the best recipes! Because everyone loved them so much I thought I would give you guys an easy recipe to bring to any holiday party.
