A Valentines Day Sweet – Dark Chocolate Walnut Pomegranate Clusters
This is more of an idea than a recipe. Use your imagination.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Servings 16 -18 clusters, depending on size
toasted walnut pieces
Melt chocolate in double boiler. Make chocolate clusters one of two ways: (1)Mix walnut pieces and pomegranate seeds in with chocolate and put spoonfuls of chocolate mixture on parchment paper lined baking sheet; (2) line mini-muffin tin with paper liners. Spoon a little melted chocolate in the bottom of the liner. Sprinkle a few walnuts and pomegranate seeds on top, then drizzle more melted chocolate on top. Sprinkle another layer of walnuts and pomegranate seeds on top, and finish with a drizzle of melted chocolate.
Place in refrigerator until firm.
I tried making these chocolate clusters with black walnuts as well as regular walnuts. Black walnuts have a unique flavor. They are stronger tasting and have a little bit of a fruity flavor that paired nicely with the pomegranate seeds and chocolate.
