Cool Ghosts make for Hot Summer Reading!

It started as a practical joke, but Hannah turned it into the adventure of a life time. Who drew the portrait of the founder of the first law school in America is a question that has haunted historians for 200 years. With the help of a spirit Hannah discovers the truth and even more about herself!

Banana Ghosts

Prep Time 10 minutes Cook Time 3 hours freezing time
Here's a Halloween trick your child will have no trouble pulling off--turning a ripe banana into a Halloween treat.

What you'll need

  • 1 Banana
  • 1-1/2oz. White chocolate melted
  • Candies or dried fruits like raisins and cranberries for eyes and mouth
  • 2 Popsicle sticks
Notes: Makes 2 ghosts per banana

How to make it

  1. Remove any stringy fibers from the peeled banana, then cut it in half widthwise. Push a Popsicle stick into each half through the cut end, then cover each pop with plastic wrap and freeze until firm (about 3 hours).
  2. Place a 1.5-ounce piece of white chocolate candy in a microwave-safe bowl and cook on high until melted (it generally takes about 1 minute). With a butter knife, spread the melted white chocolate on the frozen banana halves.
  3. Set the pops on a waxed-paper-covered dish. Press on candies or currants for eyes and mouths and return the pops to the freezer until ready to serve.
