What is there not to love about a two-ingredient recipe - especially during this joyful, but busy, time of year? With fresh pomegranate and organic dark chocolate, you can create a dazzling tray of chocolate pomegranate clusters that are sure to please your holiday crowd.
1 large or 2 medium pomegranates yields approx. 1 cup pomegranate arils
2/3 cup (4 ounces) Equal Exchange Organic dark chocolate
Score the pomegranate and place in a bowl of water. Break it open under water to let the arils sink to the bottom and the membrane float to the top. Pour through a colander and set the pomegranate arils on paper towels to absorb any excess moisture. Melt chocolate in a heavy-bottomed small saucepan over low-to-medium heat stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove saucepan from the burner. Add pomegranate seeds. Use a fork to scoop out small chocolate-covered clusters, and place each on a wax paper lined plate. Refrigerate until chocolate is firm, about 15 minutes.
I just made some last night and they were so delicious!
