Total Time
Recipe Type: Dessert
Serves: 10
  • 2 bags (12oz) Wilton white chocolate candy melts
  • 4-5 medium size bananas, cut in half and frozen
  • Wilton black candy melts (or semi-sweet chocolate chips)
  • Wilton small candy eyeballs
  1. Freeze bananas for at least an hour for easier handling.
  2. In a shallow microwave safe dish heat the white chocolate candy melts in 30 second increments stirring every 30 seconds until melted.
  3. Allow the chocolate to cool 2-3 minutes before dipping your bananas.
  4. Remove the bananas from the freezer and dip them one at a time in the chocolate completely covering them. Use a small spoon to help coat the banana and a fork to lift it out of the chocolate.
  5. Because the bananas are frozen, extra chocolate will cling to them. Lay them on the cookie sheet and use a butter knife to smooth out the chocolate if needed. They do not have to be perfect.
  6. Next, give the banana 2 candy eyes. If the chocolate has already started to set, simply add a drop of the melted chocolate to each candy eye and place on the banana.
  7. Repeat with all the bananas.
  8. Melt a small handful of chocolate chips or black candy melts.
  9. Using a toothpick, draw mouth on banana ghosts.
  10. Put bananas back into the freezer prior to serving. This will allow the bananas to stay firm.
