These chocolates are quite simple to make but look super impressive! They are also a great treat to take to events because they are so easy to transport. You can use any chocolate you want so you could use a vegan or paleo chocolate to cater to different diets. Chocolate of any form contains antioxidants as do pomegranates so this is an antioxidant rich treat. Pepitas or pumpkin seeds are one of the richest sources of zinc in the Western diet and they bring protein and good fats to the recipe. The hardest part of the recipe is melting the chocolate, just keep the temperate low and make sure you don’t get any water in the mix and you will be fine.
½ pomegranate with seeds removed
¼ cup pepitas
200g chocolate of your choice (I used 75% dark chocolate)
Dried lavender flowers (optional)
