Chocolate Covered Pomegranate Clusters
Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 3 minutes
Calories: 108 per serving
Cusine: Vegetarian, American
Food as MedicineSM Ingredient: Dark Chocolate
Ingredients1 large or 2 medium pomegranates, enough to yield scant
1 cup (8 ounces) pomegranate arils
2/3 cup (4 ounces) organic bittersweet chocolate chips, such as Ghiradelli 60%
¼ teaspoon curry powder (optional)
¼ cup fresh spearmint or peppermint, stemmed and julienned
PreparationScore 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 colendar, rinse, and set the pomegranate arils on paper towels to absorb any excess moisture. Melt chocolate chips 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 and stir in curry powder, if desired. Use a fork to scoop out small chocolate-covered clusters, and place each on a wax paper lined plate. Garnish with mint. Refrigerate until chocolate is firm, about 15 minutes.
Substitutions* 2/3 cup (4 ounces) high quality dark chocolate, chopped fine, may replace the chocolate chips.

Thanks, Chef...met you in Las Vegas...
cooking your way already! You are the best!
Made the Chocolate Covered Pomegranate Clusters and everyone loved them. Easy to make and sooooo DELICIOUS!
OMG! These were so good, easy to make and every bit delicious. A big hit at Thanksgiving.
These were very good. They had a little water in them from the Pomegranate arils, but everyone really liked them.
I just made the pomegranate clusters, They were quick and easy to make, and very delicious.
So delicious! Just made them today, and the whole family is enoying them. This will be a new favorite during pomegranate season!
Trader Joes sells pomegranate seeds already separated. Can these be used? Does anyone know if they are separated without the use of any chemicals?
These are the best thing ever! I've made two batches so far - one plain and one with curry powder - wonderful snacks!
(waiterock - Personally, I think the Trader Joe's pomegranate seeds could be used - they might not be as juicy as freshly separated ones but should be delicious anyway!)
Made these earlier this year. They were a hit and quite simple to do once I watched the video.
Fantastic !! The juicy surprise inside is what makes it special. Everyone who has tasted wants the recipe.
This recipe is a KEEPER! My market sells the fresh ariels in a box-a bit more expensive but makes this really easy to prepare!! I also made a batch using blueberries. Great treats to bring to a party!
