Since I know almost no one that is vegan, and certainly no one that I socialize with regularly it can be somewhat isolating. I am however, fortunate to have found a community of like minded people on social networking sites. That is where I met Laura Jill.
She recently tweeted about dark chocolate pomegranate clusters and I immediately knew I had to have them! So, here I am the day after Thanksgiving with half a pumpkin pie, two thirds of an apple pie and a couple of pumpkin cupcakes leftover and running out to the store for pomegranates and dark chocolate!
I think about it this way. Pomegranates being a super food loaded with antioxidants and dark chocolate with it's heart healthy flavonoids and antioxidant properties make these little goodies healthy!
Thanks Laura Jill! I hope I can someday return the favor!
Veganlicious Pomegranate Clusters
10.5 oz good quality dark chocolate (I used endangered species supreme dark chocolate)
2 pomegranates worth of arils (pomegranate seeds)
In a double boiler heat the dark chocolate until smooth and melted. Turn off the heat and mix the pomegranate arils into the chocolate. Drop in spoonfuls on a sheet of wax paper and refrigerate until cooled.
How easy was that!?! Here's to your health!
Note: it is best to make sure the arils are dry as if they are wet and you put them into the chocolate it may seize.
