Chocolate Cashew Pomegranate Drops Recipe

Ingredients

1 cup of melted chocolate (this is about 1 ½ cups of chocolate chips or 250g chocolate, melted)
Seeds from ½ a pomegranate (about ½ a cup of seeds / 90g)
 ¼ cup of raw cashews / 40g


Instructions

1. Remove the seeds from the pomegranate. The easiest way to do this is to cut the pomegranate in half and smack the back of it with a wooden spoon to release the fruit.

Another way to release the fruit is to quarter the fruit and then spread the skin to release the seeds.

2. Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of water, or in the microwave.

3. Use a teaspoon to drop the chocolate onto parchment paper.

4. Sprinkle the seeds and cashews onto the chocolate drops.


5. Let set for 30 minutes or place in a cold fridge to firm up faster.

6. Package up for gifts or store to serve as nibbles and treats. Enjoy!
