Here is a great idea for a last-minute, extremely easy and wholesome Halloween treat.
I used bananas and strawberries to make these mummies, but you can really make it fun and try with any fruit you like.
I used dark and white chocolate to decorate. And my famous (at least in my house!) homemade googly eyes that I just showed you how to make last week.
And now I promise, I will stop with any eye-wearing food from now on … well, at least until next year Halloween!
I know I got carried away with the eyes, but look… How can you resist to something so cute?!
What I love most about these mummies (… other than the googly eyes of course) is that they are the perfect example of healthy but fun snacks.
Halloween doesn’t have to be all about candies, sugar and food coloring. It can be about fresh fruit and a little bit of chocolate to make it fun and delicious.
And that’s all this recipe asks for. Strawberries and bananas, white and dark chocolate, and googly eyes (which are made just with powdered sugar and mini chocolate chips). Your kids are simply going to love these!
One thing before you rush to the kitchen to try these out. When melting the chocolate, make sure not to over-heat it, or it might start to separate and harden. So when warming it up, mix well and wait to see if all the pieces of chocolate are melted before adding seconds to the microwave. Or you might end up ruining some perfectly good chocolate.
