Frozen "Boo"-nana Pops


Ingredients:

1 medium banana

1 cup white chocolate

8 mini chocolate chips

4 popsicle sticks

Directions:
Cut banana in half lengthwise, then in half to make four quarters. Insert popsicle sticks into bananas, and freeze bananas on a wax paper lined cookie sheet. When the bananas are frozen, fill a coffee mug with chocolate. Melt chocolate in the microwave 30 seconds at a time, stirring until the chocolate is melted and soft. Dip the bananas one at a time into the chocolate, scraping off the excess chocolate from the back of the banana, and place it on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Quickly add the chocolate chips for the eyes before the chocolate hardens (you have to work quickly here).Return to the freezer until frozen and ready to eat. Eat frozen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cheesy Witch Brooms (Serves 20)

These edible witch brooms are just perfect packed away in a school lunch or displayed on a party platter. Use kitchen scissors to slice the bottom half of a cheese slice, wrap it around a pretzel stick, and then use a fresh chive as a string to hold it in place. So easy!

 

Ingredients

12 Slices of Cheese

12 Pretzel sticks

12 Fresh Chive

Directions:

Fold each cheese slice and cut the fringes of the broom using a pair of scissors. Roll the slice of cheese around a snack stick having the fringes looking down. Finally to keep the cheese around the stick, use some chive and knot it around.
 
 
 
 

 

Thai-spiced Deviled Eggs (Serves 6)

 

Deviled eggs have always been a favorite snack to bring to a party. Get creative with them this Halloween by topping them like a little “pumpkins”

Ingredients

6 Eggs

2 Tablespoons thick coconut milk,

cold(not low fat) or mayonnaise

2 Teaspoons Thai Curry paste (we used the Thai Kitchen brand)

1 Teaspoon ketchup

½ Teaspoon paprika plus more to sprinkle

½ Teaspoon spicy mustard

¼ Teaspoon Sriracha or other red chilli sauce Salt to taste

For the pumpkin look – Paprika 1 Spring/green onion

Directions:

Place the yolks and all the other ingredients in a small bowl and mash until very smooth. Mound the yolk mixture into the egg whites or transfer it to a ziptop bag and pipe it out. Wet your finger and pat the surface of the filling smooth. Using a toothpick draw lines to make the ‘pumpkin’ indentations. Sprinkle with paprika if desired. Cut up the green part of the onion to make tiny stems and add them to finish off the pumpkin look.
