Super Simple Vegan Pomegranate Clusters

Pomegranate arils are definitely one of the tastiest foods on planet Earth. It’s like an explosion of sweet deliciousness in your mouth when you crunch into them.

I was really excited when Target had pre-peeled pomegranate seeds for $2.00 off. I’ll take dos por favor! I’ve seen a similar recipe to these on Pinterest (unfortunately for the life of me I can’t find the original photo), which sparked this easy, creative Valentine’s treat!

I even did the nutritional breakdown for you —-> For one pomegranate cluster: 99 calories | 6g fat | 13 g carbs | 1.6 g fiber | 1.4g protein | 11.7g sugar

For each cluster there is about 2 teaspoons of melted chocolate (one on the bottom and one on top) and about 2 teaspoons of pomegranate arils. The recipe calls for a cup of mini chocolate chips because 1 cup of chocolate chips melts down to 1/2 – 3/4 of a cup.

I’m going to see if Blake likes these tonight…but these are definitely more of a girlfriend Valentine’s treat. What girl would say no to chocolate and pomegranate? 

That’s what I thought.

Maybe I should go pick up some beef jerky for the Blakester :D

  • -1 cup vegan chocolate chips (~24 teaspoons of melted chocolate)
  • -1/2 cup fresh pomegranate arils (=24 teaspoons)

  3. Once your chocolate chips are melted, use a teaspoon to line the bottom of each cluster with chocolate. Then, spoon in about a teaspoon of pomegranate arils and then top with an additional 1 teaspoon of melted chocolate and about 1/2 teaspoon of pomegranate seeds.

One last thing before I go! I didn’t test these using paper cupcake liners. I used silicone, which made for a really clean removal once the chocolate froze all the way! I have had some pretty bad experiences using the paper liners, especially when trying to freeze something in them. Just beware!

So the real question is…will you be my Valentine?
