Now that Halloween is over, I bet you’re already thinking about what you’ll make for next Halloween. Here’s recipe that sounded so delicious, so extremely wonderful, that I found myself dying to make them. The recipe is really simple:
Melt white chocolate (slowly) in a pot. Chop some bananas in half, and dip each half into the white chocolate. On top of the white chocolate, draw two eyes and a mouth with milk chocolate or a icing pen. This is what it’s supposed to look like:
They’re completely adorable, right? Right. Now look at how mine came out:
Oh sweet Jesus, look at those things! It looks like a kindergartener made them! So much for having a bachelors degree, eh?
Here’s what I think I did wrong (and what you should avoid):
- Not all white chocolates are created equal. Spend the extra money and buy a trusty brand of melting (not baking) chocolates.
- When dipping ghosts, don’t use a fork. They explode when in the chocolate. Use sticks, and make sure they’re evenly coated while you’re at it.
- They should go in the freezer right away. No, don’t argue with me. Freezer. Right away.
- If people aren’t going to eat them immediately, keep them in the freezer. They’ll melt. And when they melt, they’ll look worse than the picture. That was taken pre-melt-a-thon.
And there you have it. Hopefully next Halloween you try this recipe out and it comes out better than mine. If you do try it, shoot me a picture. I’ll happily post it while pretending not to be really jealous. Happy Halloween!
