  • 100g dark chocolate

  1. Line a muffin tin with muffin cases or baking paper. Melt chocolate and drop a generous tablespoon of chocolate into each muffin case – it should make about 6 pennies.
  2. Before the chocolate hardens, drop a tablespoon of pomegranate seeds into each penny. Drizzle melted chocolate from a height to ‘cage’ in the pomegranate seeds.
  3. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours, until set.
