Cashew, Chocolate and Pomegranate Snack Mix (a.k.a. Oddly Good Snack Mix)

Cashew Chocolate Snack MixThis is the type of recipe that happens when you clean out your fridge and discover 2 on-their-way-out pomegranates, have just roasted some spiced nuts (intended for a virtuous salad) and are craving chocolate (always!). It’s the type of flavor combination you discover when you’re in the kitchen trying a nibble of this and a bite or two of that. Sometimes you find a combination that is oddly good!Pomegranate Seeds
Oddly Good Snack Mix Recipe
1 cup raw whole cashews
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt
2 ounces bittersweet chocolate chunks (I like 70% or 80% cacao)
1/2 cup pomegranate arils (seeds)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Place cashews in a small bowl. Drizzle with olive oil; stir to coat. Sprinkle with smoked paprika, coriander and salt; mix well.

Spread mixture in a single layer on prepared baking sheet. Bake 5 minutes, stir. Bake 5 to 8 minutes more or until cashews are toasted. Let cool completely.

When ready to serve, add chocolate chunks and pomegranate arils. (Be sure to add pomegranate arils just before serving.)

Makes 4 servings

Tip: The roasted cashews can be made ahead and stored at room temperature in an airtight container.
