This picture has 3 different fun things you can make: Ghost bananas, pumpkin clementines, and jack-o-lantern clementines.
- Mini chocolate chips (eyes)
- Regular chocolate chips (mouth)
There are two different ways you can make this, depending on how big you want your serving size and how you want to display the bananas. If you want a bigger serving size (half a banana) and you want the ghosts to stand behind everything, you can simply peel the bananas and cut them in half, then stand them up on the plate to get two ghosts per banana. Or, for a bigger quantity, you can cut the bananas in half, and then in half the long way to get four ghosts per banana–But you’ll have to lay the ghosts down on a platter. Either way looks really fun. Then simply push the pointed end of the mini chocolate chips in the banana for eyes and the regular chocolate chip for the mouth.
- Clementines, peeled
- Celery, cut into stem-sized pieces (about 1/2″ long by 1/4″ wide)
- Celery “strings” for curly vines (optional)
These are very simple! To add fun curly vines for decoration (optional), just peel a little bit of the celery “string” off the leftover celery stalks with a small paring knife. Then, being very careful not to cut yourself, gently use your knife to curl the vines like you’d curl ribbon for gift wrapping. (If you pull too quickly, the string is more likely to break.) Then simply place the end of the vine near the center of the clementine, then place the stem on top and push the “stem” and vine down into the center until it stays.
- Black permanent marker
Maybe the simplest idea of all, just use a black marker and draw on fun faces. Guests can decorate their own, or place these throughout your party for a delicious, inexpensive decoration!
