Chop your bananas in half and insert a lollypop stick into the end, freeze and then repeat as above.


Caramel Apples



  • Granny Smith Apples
  • Soft Caramels
  • Lollypop sticks
  • Crushed pretzels and sugar coated chocolate for decorating

Add lollypop sticks to the apples and set to one side. Melt the soft caramels with a splash of water over a low heat, be careful caramel can get very hot! When the caramel is all soft and runny, let it cool a little before dipping in the apples to coat, then gently roll through a plate of topping of choice.


Veggie Skeleton & Sour Cream Dip



Make as shown.

Wash and chop up a selection of veggies such as carrots, celery, mushrooms and tomatoes and serve in a skeleton shape with a sour cream dip for a head. You could use small pieces of veg or olives for eyes and mouth.


Monster Krispie Treats



Using your favourite puffed rice and mallow recipe, set in a baking tray and then cut into equal rectangular shapes. Dip each end into green icing or candy melts and then when set add edible eyes.
