Easy Halloween Party Treats

Updated on January 14, 2016

Indian Corn Banana Pops

Are you looking for an easy, fun treat for your Halloween party? Look no more! This recipe begins with a standard banana pop kit from the grocery store, then only adds a couple of steps to turn the pops into the cutest little (giant!) candy corn pops in town.

I made these banana pops not long ago with my four-year-old. He thought it was the most fun he had ever had in the kitchen, except maybe for dying Easter eggs!

I wish I had a picture of the finished product that looks like big Indian Corn candies on a stick, but the pops were eaten so quickly that I forgot to take more pictures! I will make them again and post new pictures, so check back later to see them!

Don't know what Indian Corn candy looks like?

They are very similar to candy corn, but they have chocolate on the bottom. I prefer them over candy corn, personally, because the chocolate cuts the sweetness just a tad. Yum. I'm getting hungry just looking at this picture!

INGREDIENTS

So easy, you can get the children involved.

Bananas

1 Chocolate Banana Pop Kit from the grocery store

Orange Candy Melts

White Candy Melts

Note: I bought the kit in the picture from my local Publix. This kit, or others like it, should be available in your local grocery stores, most likely in the Produce Department near the bananas.

Obviously, this is a whole case of kits! If you plan to make these in bulk, then you can order here! Otherwise, a single kit should be available at your local grocery store.

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Follow instructions on your box for chocolate banana pops:

Peel your bananas, then cut them in half.

Using popsicle sticks from your kit, slide a stick into each banana, like the pictures indicate.

Freeze the bananas.

Prepare and apply chocolate to frozen bananas as instructed.

2. Freeze the banana pops for approximately half an hour, to make sure the chocolate is hard and frozen.

3. Melt the orange candy melts as instructed. Beginning at the tip, dip each banana pop 2/3 of the way (toward the stick) into the melted orange candy. Allow to harden, refreeze if necessary.

4. Melt the white candy melts as instructed. Dip each banana pop 1/3 of the way into the melted white candy. This should cover the orange section by about one half (only the tip of the banana pop). Allow to harden. Refreeze until ready to serve.

Voila!

In order to avoid any melting or sweating (yes, the chocolate sweats when the banana starts to thaw!), don't remove the pops from the freezer until you are ready to serve them.

A good book to read while you enjoy your Indian Corn Banana Pop. - Leftover treats after your party is over?

Prop your feet up on the coffee table, enjoy a banana pop, and read a good book. The Ballad of the Shirley T and Other Stories is my collection of short stories, published in October 2011.
