Ghostly Frozen Bananas
If you need a cute and simple Halloween snack idea, these are fun and easy to make (and even the dog's mouth was watering, as you can see from the creeping husky in the background). These frozen banana treats are a playful way to get your sweet tooth fix.
Mini chocolate chips (ghost eyes)
1 large banana (or more, depending on how many your chocolate will make)
White Candy Melts (I used Wilton Marshmallow flavored, you could also use white chocolate)
*Popsicle sticks, or paper straws cut in half
Cut the banana in half lengthwise, and then in half width wise to make 4 pieces. They do not have to be equal in size. Push the paper straw into the cut end at least a half an inch inside. Place on parchment paper on a baking sheet and freeze for at least half an hour. Meanwhile, melt the chocolate in a microwave safe glass bowl on 50% power for 1 minute. Stir, and continue to heat at normal power for 30 second intervals, stirring in between until the chocolate is fully melted.
Take the bananas out of the freezer, and dip, or spread the chocolate onto both sides, covering the banana fully. Place them back onto the prepared baking sheet and immediately add two mini chocolate chip eyes. Repeat for the rest of the bananas. Place back into the freezer until set, and store in the freezer if you aren't eating them right away! I added some sliced bananas because I had a bit of chocolate left. You can repeat and make more with sticks, or cut banana slices at an angle and chocolate coat them.
