Who loves chocolate candies? This is what I called an healthier chocolate candy treat or my Healthy Pomegranate Chocolate Candy Cups. The combo of fresh anti oxydant-rich pomegranate seeds + 85% dark chocolate + crushed salted and roasted pistachio and toasted coconut chips is simply a BOMB!
I am already thinking about Christmas! I know it is early but let’s be honest Christmas is already everywhere in any store. So hard to not feel the Christmas spirit already ! I love Christmas anyway it is my favourite time of the year because it is all about food and family. But this year I want to build an homemade advent calendar for my girl full of healthy home made chocolate candies. This recipe will be one of them I am sure! What I love the most about this recipe is the juicy texture that release the pomegranate seeds when you eat those cute cups. It reminds me the famous mon cheri candied cherry chocolate – without the liquor of course. The good thing is they store very well even if it contains fresh fruits. I kept mine up to 2 weeks in a plastic jar in the fridge without seeing any change in taste or texture.
The combo of salted roasted pistachio and pomegranate is absolutely delicious and the colour are simply the one I love for Christmas. Lots of red colour with some bits and pieces of green and white.
Well if you also wonder how to de-seed a pomegranate in less than a minute with no mess ? This is how I did it. I simply draw lines on the top of pomegranate using a sharp knife. Then I break the shell following those lines. I used a teaspoon to scratch the seeds out of the shell and discard the white parts. I simply rub the seeds into absorbent paper to remove the white parts easily without using any water. It is a very easy 10-minutes guilt free treat for christmas and I hope you will enjoy them as much as I do. You lik what you see? follow me on facebook ! Carine. xx
