Pomegranate and Almond Chocolate Clusters
- 8 ounces dark chocolate
- 3/4 cup whole almonds (salted or unsalted)
- 1 cup pomegranate arils
Melt chocolate in a heavy-bottomed small saucepan over low-to-medium heat stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes (watch it, chocolate can scorch quickly!). Remove saucepan from the burner. Add pomegranate seeds and stir in almonds. Use a spoon to scoop out small chocolate-covered clusters, and place each on a wax paper lined plate. Refrigerate until chocolate is firm, about 15 minutes. Sprinkle a few pomegranate arils on top of the hardened clusters, if desired.
Enjoy with someone you love!
