Boo-nana Pops | Simple Halloween Recipe For Kids

If you’re spending Halloween at home this year it’s helpful to have some extra sweet treats planned.

Although trick or treating might not be doable there are still plenty of activities to keep your little devils entertained and their sweet tooth suitably satisfied!

These super simple Boo-nana Pops are great if you’re looking for a healthier alternative to buckets of candy and chocolate. You can even use raisins to create the ghost faces if you want a more fruity twist.

Encourage your child to get involved in the kitchen when making these Boo-nana Pops. Kids can help to peel the bananas, add lolly sticks and get dipping in the chocolate! It’s also loads of fun to encourage their creative side when adding decoration and faces to their ghostly snacks.
