Trick the kids into eating fruit by dressing up bananas with rich dark chocolate, marshmallows and a drizzle of icing to create fabulous mummified treats for Halloween. See method

  • Serves 6
  • 40 mins to prepare and 10 mins to cook, plus freezing
  • 350 calories / serving
  • Gluten-free


  • 3 bananas
  • 100g mini marshmallows
  • 250g dark chocolate, chopped
  • 2½ tbsp sunflower oil
  • chocolate writing icing

Peel and halve the bananas crossways. Insert a cake pop stick into the cut base of each banana. Put on a tray lined with nonstick baking paper and freeze for 1 hr.
Meanwhile, prepare the eyeballs. Empty the mini marshmallows into a bowl, and cut 6 in half crossways. Melt the dark chocolate with the sunflower oil in a bowl set over a pan of simmering water. Dip each banana in the melted chocolate. Return to the tray and press in the halved marshmallows to make eyes. Freeze for 30 mins, until set.
Microwave the remaining marshmallows on high for 20-30 secs, until just melted. Allow to cool so strands form, then wrap around each banana with a fork. Using the writing icing, dot an eye onto the marshmallow halves.
