Banana-Pop Ghouls

Yield 6 ghosts, 6 bats


  • 6 large, firm bananas, peeled
  • 12 ice-pop sticks
  • 1 1/2 cups white-chocolate chips
  • 18 Froot Loops
  • 3 to 4 sheets fruit leather
  • 1 1/2 cups semisweet or milk-chocolate chips
  • 12 Red Hots

How to Make It

  1. Cut the bananas in half crosswise. Insert an ice-pop stick about 2 inches into cut end of one half. Repeat with remaining banana halves. Place on a waxed-paper-lined baking sheet and freeze for about an hour.

    Ghost Pop:
    Microwave white-chocolate chips on high for about 2 minutes, or until completely melted. Spoon over banana to cover completely. While chocolate is still soft, press in 3 Froot Loops for eyes and mouth. Freeze banana again until chocolate is hard, about 30 minutes.

    Bat Pop:
    Cut out 2 fruit-leather "wings"; set aside. Melt semisweet chocolate chips and spoon over banana. While chocolate is soft, press in 2 Red Hots for eyes. Press a bat wing into each side for a few seconds until it sticks. Freeze until chocolate is hard, about 30 minutes.
