Halloween Banana Mummies

The Recipe: Halloween Banana Mummies

Halloween this year is going to look a lot different for our little people, so it’s our job to get creative and ensure a fun time is had by all. These Banana Mummies are a great way to get the kids involved in the process, without taking too much effort. Makes 6


3 bananas

100g mini marshmallows

250g dark chocolate, chopped

2½ tbsp sunflower oil

chocolate writing icing


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