Healthy Halloween! Banana Monster Pops
Ingredients For the Mummies: 2 bananas, use the end pieces each (save the remains for the other monsters) 1/4 c. vegan white chocolate, melted 1/4 c. shredded coconut (sweetened or unsweetened) 4 homemade vegan googly eyes* recipe below 4 lollipop sticks For the Frankensteins: Remains from the Mummy banana slices 1/4 c. vegan white chocolate, melted + a few drops vegan green food coloring (you might have to use yellow and blue combo - try Color Garden dyes!) 2 dates, use the end pieces of each 8 homemade vegan googly eyes 8 sunflower seeds 4 lollipop sticks Directions Line a baking sheet with a piece of wax paper. Gently place the lollipop sticks halfway through into the bananas, making sure that you do not insert it all the way. Dip each piece into the melted white chocolate, using a spoon or fork to secure the bottom of it. For the Mummies: Coat with the shredded coconut and immediately place a googly eye in the middles. For the Frankensteins: Top with the date end piece, pressing firmly yet gently to secure it on the top. Place the sunflower seeds into the neck and two googly eyes onto his face. Place all banana pops on the baking sheet and immediately freeze for 10-15 minutes or until set. Vegan Googly Eyes Ingredients 1 c. powdered sugar 1 tsp. cornstarch 1 Tbsp. corn syrup 2 tsp. nondairy milk 1/4 tsp. almond extract (or vanilla extract) mini nondairy chocolate chips (like Enjoy Life) Instructions Whisk together the powdered sugar and cornstarch. Add the remainder ingredients except for the chocolate chips and mix until combined. It should be a thick paste at this point. Place into either a piping bag or Ziploc baggie and pipe dots into one row onto a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Gently top each dot with the mini chocolate chip--you don't want to wait too long to place the chocolate chip in the middle or it will set. Repeat until all the paste is gone. Allow the googly eyes to set for at least 24 hours on your counter.

The mummies are my favorite. You could dip a banana in chocolate as well and all licorice legs!
