Halloween, the season of childlike ghoulish fun. Try making this fun, healthier Halloween candy treat with your kids. Fresh banana, shredded coconut, white chocolate, a few sunflower seeds and chocolate chips and a few other simple ingredients are all you need for these tasty snack or dessert pops.
A few tips for the perfect pop:
1) Melt white chocolate in a double boiler. Add a 1/2 tablespoon shortening for a smoother chocolate that is less likely to seize up. Alternatively, melt in the microwave by heating in 15 to 20 second increments.
2) Lollipop sticks are available at most grocery stores in the baking section. When attaching the banana pieces, guide the banana onto the lollipop stick carefully or banana may split. 🙂
3) When rolling the banana in chocolate, use a spoon or other utensil to help roll the banana and keep it firmly on the lollipop stick.
