I love pomegranates. They're a pain in the butt to get into for the good stuff, but they're totally worth it.

What's better than pomegranates? Pomegranates and chocolate. Chocolate pomegranate snacks are basically a match made in heaven. And as much as I love that combo, it's really hard for me to dish out the money for the packages of those Brookside Dark Chocolate Covered Pomegranates.

Yesterday I had a horrible craving for chocolate, and realized I had a few pomegranates in the fridge. My first idea was to sit on the floor in my pantry, alternating pouring handfuls of dark chocolate and pomegranate arils into my mouth.

But then I figured I could put the two together for a sweet, tart, crunchy snack!

What you need to make chocolate pomegranate clusters

All you need are two things:

  • a pomegranate (or pre-packaged pomegranate arils to save yourself even more time and energy)
  • dark chocolate chips or chopped chocolate

You can use more or less chocolate if you'd like, but this is the amount I like to use that ends up being small cupcake-sized.

How to melt chocolate

Follow the package directions for what you have on hand, but you can either:

  • Use a microwave, heating in short increments and stirring in between each one
  • Use a double broiler, heating over low heat and stirring frequently

Either way, you want to heat the chocolate until it's melted and smooth. Use a good quaity chocolate – it can make a big difference!
