Halloween Banana Ghosts

The yummiest way to make Halloween healthier.


  • 6 bananas, peeled
  • ¾ cup desiccated coconut
  • 180g Caramilk or white chocolate, melted
  • 50g dark choc chocolate, melted
  • 18 dark choc bits
  • You will also need 6 paddle pop sticks


Trim 1cm from the end of each banana. Scatter the coconut onto a tray.

Thickly brush the melted Caramilk chocolate over 1 banana to completely coat, then roll in the coconut to coat. Insert a paddle pop stick in the trimmed end. Set aside on a tray lined with baking paper while preparing the remaining bananas.

Using a little melted chocolate, secure the choc bits for the eyes and nose. Spoon the remaining dark chocolate into a snap lock bag and cut a small hole in one corner. Pipe on the eyebrows. Refrigerate 15 minutes until set. Serve.

Tip: On a warm Halloween night you can freeze these ghosts for 30 minutes before serving.
