Veganlicious Pomegranate Clusters

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.
