With Halloween coming soon, I thought I would share these cute, ghost-shaped frozen “Boo”-nana Pops made with only 2 ingredients. This is the perfect Halloween dessert to make with the kids and what kid doesn’t like chocolate covered bananas.

Just ask my little one!

This makes four pops but you will have plenty of extra chocolate if you want to make more. Each banana has about 1/2 oz of chocolate, that is how I based the nutritional info.

Ghost-shaped Halloween frozen banana pops made with just white chocolate and bananas. Fun, healthy treats to make with the kids!

Ingredients

  • 1 medium banana
  • 1 cup good quality white chocolate*
  • 8 mini chocolate chips for eyes
  • 4 popsicle sticks

Instructions

  • 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.

Notes

  • Each banana has about 1/2 oz of chocolate, that is how I based the nutritional info.

  1. This is a wonderfully fun recipe. I always like simplicity at its best and yet yummy! Thanks for creating sharing this recipe and introduce it to the world 🙂 

  2. The chocolate was too thick to dip the bananas in. I tried adding a little milk, but after freezing they were not very white because the chocolate coating was thin. Also, the sticks would not stay in the bananas. 
    But despite those problems, it was a cute project and my 5 year old loved it. 

  3. So cute! I am going to link to these in my upcoming Halloween Recipes post.

  4. What about dipping in yogurt? Would it freeze the same? These look absolutely delicious but I think the sugar content is just a tad too high for my two year olds so wondering if there was a lower sugar alternative.

  59. I see a lot of + comments & some – comments as well. That's normal, but a lot of them are just plain brainless. The recipe calls for white chocolate, & it is effortless too melt them on the stove & yes the ones in the craft store or even Walmart melt nice & smooth. Those are candy melts not baking morsels. As for the freezer part, well obviously something that comes out of the freezer requires thawing eventually, so duh, eat up. They weren't meant to last forever. FYI people, it's more of a kid's recipe, therefore they wouldn't have time to melt, they will be eaten asap. If you dont like the mess, follow the recipe minus the freezer, than it's an adult party pleaser minus the goo.

  60. I was really hoping this would work out but only the first couple worked, then my bananas started to melt and caused the chocolate to seize. Now I have a cup of seized chocolate yuck and 2 thick white chocolate shells filled with banana goo. Ugh. And what can I do with seized chocolate????

  61. Does anyone know how long it takes for them to freeze after you have dipped them in chocolate?

  62. hello- just wondering if anyone has tried or thinks white almond bark would work?

  63. how long do they take to freeze?

  64. Is it 1/2 oz. choc. per whole banana or per pop? Thanks!

  65. My initial entry was a little negative on this recipe (2 posts up on 10/27/12). BUT I love Gina and all her recipes so I'm coming back to review my last attempt with this recipe. Now I'm addicted and keep these pops in the freezer all the time! Definitely scratch the white chips/morsels and use the white chocolate melties – the ones at craft stores meant for candy making. They melted nice and smooth! Yummy, success!

  66. Tried this and it was a total fail. I used choc chips since the recipe didn't specify what type of white choc to use. First try burned the choc. Had to go back to the store to buy more chips. Tried again and the bananas were thawing out faster than I get dip them and kept breaking off into the white choc. I had bits of mushed banana in the white choc. I gave up. I'm done. I'm glad I didn't promise my child's class that I'd bring a treat tomorrow for Halloween so at least they won't be disappointed but I'm at least $20 in the hole and frustrated.

  67. This was my first skinnytaste recipe that I didn't really like. The end product was just ok, but it took me several tries to get there. Melting white chocolate morsels/chips, per the instructions, did not work for me. After the 3rd interval of 30 seconds warming in the microwave, the chocolate started to dry up and burn. Per another review, I ended up adding a little milk to my 3rd attempt which helped but yellowed the white chocolate a bit. Will try the white chocolate melties next year, per Gina's notes a few entries above.

  68. I am leaving in a bit to go to a class party. Mine started to that just trying to get them coated. I would say this works for a small group but not thinking they will travel well at all. 🙁

  69. We did these and loved them but after 20 mins they became a mushy unappetizing mess from the thaw. Have you tried not freezing them? Would that work? For class parties they just won't get eaten in 20 mins. I need them to last longer

  70. Happy Tasty Tuesday! We love this recipe and it is featured on our Halloween Recipes! Thanks so much for sharing!

  71. So cute! I am going to link to these in my upcoming Halloween Recipes post.

  72. This is a great idea, I'm going to try it out this weekend, I'm sure my daughter (and me and the wife) will love them.

  73. chocolate isn't vegan

  74. I love your site, but this recipe shouldn't be marked as vegan because of the milk in the white chocolate, fyi casein=milk….Unless this uses a milk free white chocolate, in which case I would love to know the brand because it seems near impossible to find any^^

  75. I'm wondering those that used chips if they were white chocolate. I recall that happening to me once, and it turned out it was white candy, not chocolate.

    For this I used the white chocolate melties like you use to make chocolate lolly pops. They melt beautifully.

  76. To Emmalie and Aidan's Mom: This is spooky — I did the exact same things as you in the exact same order. Bought white chocolate chips, over done in microwave — tried double boil system, didn't melt, and then went out and got wafers. Glad I wasn't alone!

  77. Just made these for a third grade Halloween party. They are quick and so cute. My 5 yr old thinks they are fabulous

  78. Ok, I went out and bought the melting chips, the wafers, and they worked exactly as shown above. Skip the chips and go for the wafers!
    Would that change the points?

  79. I am so disappointed in this recipe. I was so excited to try this out. The first package I did went in the mic, stirred every 30 seconds, the chocolate never got smooth, just cooked and hard. I tried again on the stove top. I melted them over low heat, again, they never really got smooth, they just solidified into a large mass. So here I sit, in tears because this was to be the Halloween treat for my kids classes, $12 poorer and nothing to show for it.

  80. made these today ~ they were a hit with my boys and the neighbor kids!!! what a great treat! thanks so much 🙂

  81. cute!! I make semi-sweet chocolate frozen banana pops in the summer, but never thought of using white chocolate and turning them in to Boo pops! _This_ is awesome 🙂

  82. My chips didn't melt either. :/ Maybe they were stale or I tried to melt too few? I love this idea though and I will defintely try again!

  83. How cute. Made orange colored white chocolate-covered strawberry pumpkins for a party with a food contest. It was postponed and I wondered how to up my game… you gave me the perfect solution.

    One a side note for the pp, if you want to color the white chocolate, I'd recommend you use gel or paste food coloring. Liquid causes the white chocolate to "seize" and glump… not dippable. Sigh.

  84. You have to be careful in the microwave, melt in 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between. It doesn't take very long.

  85. I made them today.I tried doing the chocolate in the microwave and it didn't melt right and burned.So I melted it on the stove and added oil to it.The chocolate finally melted. Hope they are tasty! They look cute 🙂

  86. Thanks 🙂

    Dipped in yogurt, I'll have to try that sometime.

  87. Your daughter is just precious!~!

  88. Have the bananas in the freezer now. My bananas were small and first one I quartered and try putting the sticks in-broke so I just halved mine.

  89. Your halloween treat was featured over at Sassy Sites! Come by and check it out and don't forget to grab a featured button!! XOXO!

  90. I made these today 🙂 With some Low Fat Yogurt 🙂 worked great and harden Wonderfully!! Too Late to have one now, but looking forward to trying one tomorrow 🙂

  91. I made these today! While melting the white chocolate chips, they got too hot and the mixture got hard. I added some milk to thin it out and make it "dippable".

  92. I bet this could be done by coloring white chocolate chips with orange food coloring, and green decorating gel for eyes nose, and mouth.

  93. How cute! 😀

  94. I am sure my little girl will love the "dip the banana part". And of course, she will continuously nag me with "is it ready mom?" questions while the bananas are getting frozen…
    Thanks for the post. I love fresh fruits as treats for the kids.

  95. Omg, she is too adorable!

  96. Adorable ! I loooooooooove it

  97. I LOVE the idea… and think that my kids are gonna love it too.
    Thanks for sharing!!

  98. Wonder if it would work if you dipped them in vanilla yogurt/or greek yogurt? Would it harden enough?

  99. You're daughter is adorable. I'm making these for my Israeli grandkids when I go there. They love to watch Casper the Ghost DVDs. We'll have so much fun and my daughter can take time out…

  100. These are so adorable. Thanks for sharing. 🙂

  101. Eep, never mind. I see how you melted it! I must read the whole post before responding next time 🙂

  102. I'm on vacation right now, but definitely bookmarked this one. My kids are grown, but I sure would enjoy at 3 points+ snack from the freezer once in a while. Did you simply melt white chocolate chips to get the dip?

  103. Your daughter is sooo cute! That looks like a great treat for children!!

  104. These are so cute and your daughter is the cutest ever!

  105. I have no kiddos at home and bananas give me a stomachache (go figure) but these are adorable. 🙂

  106. Too, cute!! I'll definitely make these for my toddlers.

  107. Such an easy peazy recipe… Nice looking ghosts..

  108. Oh, I am making these today! Thanks for the idea. If you are in a rush and can't put the eyes on right away.

  109. Thanks 🙂

    I'm sure Dark chocolate ghosts with white eyes would be just as cute!

    If you wrap them in plastic baggies, they should last a few weeks in the freezer.

  110. Too fun and cute!!! 🙂

  111. adorable!!!

  112. What a great blog, thanks and can't wait to try some of your recipes!!

  113. Your daughter is a beauty!!! Great picture!

  114. If you did want to make a big bunch of them to freeze how long do you think frozen bananas stay good for?

  115. Adorable! Will be making these for my popsicle obsessed 2 y/o!

  116. too cute for words. Love it.
    Laura @ A Healthy Jalapeño

  117. perfect timing on this recipe! going to make them for treat day at school on thursday! thanks again for saving me 🙂 happy halloween!

  118. quick and easy…..gonna try these later.

    diane

  119. haha too cute! I love this idea. For those that are allergic to chocolate, I bet melted coconut butter would work! Totally going to try and make these today!

  120. Ahaha love these! So yummy looking!

  121. Boo, I mean, TOO cute!

  122. Ahhh! So cute!! I wonder if I can get the hubby to eat this one or if he will insist on a dark chocolate ghost so I can avoid the whole "white chocolate isn't chocolate" lecture. LOL If he doesn't eat it, I WILL!

  123. What a great idea! I always feel better about giving kids treats like this. They're sweet enough to be special, but also full of fruit. Perfect!
