Banana ghost lollies
- You’ll need
- 16 wooden sticks
- spare shelf in the freezer
- teaspoon, for drizzling the chocolate
- 4 medium–firm bananas
- 16 dried cranberries, for eyes
- 16 dark chocolate chips, for noses
- ¼ cup desiccated coconut
- 130g white chocolate
1 Peel and cut the bananas in half lengthways, then halve each length crosswise to make 4 banana pieces. Cover a baking tray with baking paper and place the bananas on it.
2 Cut the cranberries in half to make the eyes for the lollies and place on a plate. Place the chocolate chips for the noses on another plate. Sprinkle coconut on a plate.
3 Break the chocolate into small pieces and place in a non-metallic bowl. Cook on high in the microwave until melted – about 45–60 seconds.
4 Use a teaspoon to drizzle each banana with chocolate. While still wet, add the eyes and noses to the ghosts, then sprinkle with half the coconut.
5 Place in the freezer for 2 hours. Push a stick up one end of the banana. Lay on a colourful board. Sprinkle with the remaining coconut (to loosely resemble cobwebs). Serve within 30 minutes of removing from the freezer.
