  1. In a small bowl, gently melt the chocolate either in the microwave – in short bursts on high or over a pan of simmering water (make sure the bowl isn’t touching the water). Set aside for a moment while you get the bananas ready.

  2. Peel the bananas, cut in half, and push a lolly stick into the middle of each piece. Spread the coconut out in a shallow bowl. Line a large baking tray with baking parchment, and make sure there is room for the tray in the freezer.

  3. Using a pastry brush, coat a banana half in chocolate, letting excess drip away. Sprinkle with plenty of the coconut until coated, then set it on the prepared sheet. Now add two chocolate eyes and a mouth, and if you like, cut a few little eyebrows from the chocolate drops too. Freeze the lollies for at least 4 hrs, and up to a week.

Sorry a bit confused, do you eat these straight from the freezer or do they have to thaw.

Eh, not too fussed about this. The chocolate drips everywhere and doesn't end up looking like the picture.

Someone here was thinking of eating Insects for Halloween dinner. At least dessert wouldn't be as scary! with these ghosts!

Sorry to hear this MochiNightmare, this didn't happen at all during recipe development or when I made the ghosts for the photograph here. I'd suggest that once the chocolate has melted, let it cool and thicken a little before brushing it onto the bananas. It will stick, with only a little dripping away. You can then complete the decoration and freeze. Hope this helps, Jane
