Paleo(ish) Chocolate Pomegranate Treats! Only 2 Ingredients!

Thrifty Family Finds Paleo Chocolate Pomegranate Treats

Last year for Valentine’s Day, I hosted a Valentine’s Tea Party for my then 2.5 year old and two of her little friends.  Heart-shaped petit` fours and cucumber sandwiches and other themed treats.  It was so much fun, so I decided to make it an annual event!

This year I was looking for a Paleo recipe that was

a) delicious

and

b) kid-approved

Then during a Costco shopping trip one day, I saw the fresh pomegranate arils in the refrigerated section and it all clicked! Chocolate-Covered Pomegranate Arils!  So simple and SO delicious!  And using the Enjoy Life Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
makes them (almost) Paleo.  They still have evaporated cane syrup in them, but I know that many Paleo bloggers still use them in their recipes.  So that’s why I say Paleo(ish) 🙂

Chocolate Pomegranate Treats

– Pomegranate Arils

Enjoy Life Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

(I used the Mega Chunks, but I’ve also used the mini chocolate chips and they both taste the same)

Melt chocolate chips in a double boiler over low heat, stirring frequently.

Once melted, pour thin layer into the bottom of each candy mold or mini cupcake liner.  I used these Martha Stewart Crafts Vintage Girl Mini Cupcake Wrappers and a mold very similar to this one
for the heart-shaped chocolates.

Add pomegranate arils, then cover with more melted chocolate.

Let set in the refrigerator for at least an hour.

Enjoy!

I wish I could accurately convey just how delicious these are through the internet 😉  I guess the photo will have to do!  But trust me and just make some for yourself.  You won’t regret it!
