Ingredients:  
4 bars dark chocolate (or 3 cups dark chocolate chips)
2/3 cup pomegranate seeds
2/3 cup dates, chopped into small pieces
2/3 cup dried figs, chopped into small pieces

Directions:
Directions:
Line a mini muffin pan with paper muffin cups. Break the dark chocolate bars into smaller pieces and slowly melt over a double boiler. If you don't have a double boiler, you can melt the chocolate in a glass, Pyrex or metal bowl set securely atop a pan of simmering water.

Once the chocolate is melted, spoon a little into each cup so that the bottom is completely covered.

Spoon about 2 teaspoons of the pomegranate seeds into 12 of the chocolate cups, dividing the fruit evenly between the cups.

Repeat with the chopped dates and figs (12 of each) until all of the cups have been filled.

Cover the fruit candies with the remaining melted chocolate. Don't be afraid to get a little messy here. Embrace the imperfection. They don't need to look neat and tidy.

Leave the chocolates in a cool, dry place for about 4 hours until set. You can speed up the process by placing them in the fridge for about 30 minutes. Over time the chocolate may "bloom" - a process in which the sugar or fat rises to surface of the chocolate and creates a cloudy or spotty appearance. They'll still taste great, they just won't be as pretty.
