Need another terror-ific Halloween treat this year? This Halloween desert will help set the tone for your fright-night menu. If you wish, let everyone carve their own “shrunken head” dessert or dress their own “ghost”.

BANANA GHOSTS
(Makes 6 ghosts)

3 bananas
6 popsicle sticks
6 oz (200 g) white chocolate or white chocolate candy melts, coarsely chopped, or white chocolate chips
12 chocolate chips

Peel bananas; remove any stringy fibers. Cut bananas in half widthwise. Push a popsicle stick into each half through the cut end. Cover each banana with plastic wrap and freeze until firm, about 3 hours.

Place white chocolate in a microwaveable bowl and heat on High (100% power) for 1 minute; stir. Continue heating, 30 seconds at a time, until white chocolate is mostly melted but a few pieces remain. Stir to melt remaining white chocolate.

Spread or spoon white chocolate over frozen banana halves. Press chocolate chips in place for eyes.

Set banana ghosts on a waxed paper-covered plate and place in the freezer until serving time.
