Banana-pop Bats and Ghouls

Prep time: About 45 minutes
Cook time:
Serves: 6 ghosts, 6 bats

6 large, firm bananas, peeled
12 ice-pop sticks
1 1/2 cups white-chocolate chips
18 Froot Loops
3 to 4 sheets fruit leather
1 1/2 cups semisweet or milk-chocolate chips
12 Red Hots

Ghost Pop
Microwave white-chocolate chips on high for about 2 minutes, or until completely melted. Spoon over banana to cover completely. While chocolate is still soft, press in 3 Froot Loops for eyes and mouth. Freeze banana again until chocolate is hard, about 30 minutes.

Bat Pop
Cut out 2 fruit-leather “wings”; set aside. Melt semisweet chocolate chips and spoon over banana, as at left. While chocolate is soft, press in 2 Red Hots for eyes. Press a bat wing into each side for a few seconds until it sticks. Freeze until chocolate is hard, about 30 minutes.
