Mummy Tails


It might have been just me, but I always thought chocolate covered frozen bananas were called “Monkey Tails.”   It might be racist to the monkeys, but I’m pretty sure they can’t read.   (That might also be monkey racist.) It’s better if I just forget all about monkeys and focus on the task at hand…Halloween treats.

I’m not suggesting you hand these out to your neighborhood kids (unless they come dressed as monkeys). Just make a few for you and yours to enjoy while you wait for the doorbell to ring.  As an added bonus, the sight of you eating something with eyes might keep the neighborhood kids away!




Chocolate chips

White chocolate chips


  1. Peel your banana, shove a stick up it, and pop it in the freezer.
  1. Melt the chocolate chips over a double boiler, or in a microwave (10 minute bursts, with stirring in between).
  1. Dip your ‘naners into the chocolate (you may need to assist with a spoon), then return them to the freezer.
  1. Melt the white chocolate (in the same manner as the dark). Use a fork to drizzle the white chocolate over the chocolate covered banana in a mummy-like fashion. Add eyes, if you dare. Return to the freezer for at least 5 minutes—or overnight.   Serve with a smile.
