Prep: 20-30 minutes (excluding freezing time)

Cook: 2-5 minutes

Makes: 6 Banana Penguins

What You’ll Need:

  • 150g dark chocolate chips
  • 3 bananas
  • 18 orange M&Ms
  • White ready to roll icing
  • Chocolate icing pen

What To Do:

  • Peel 3 bananas and cut each in half. Place in the freezer.
  • Melt the dark chocolate into a bowl over a pan of simmering water until runny. Leave to cool slightly.
  • To make the penguin’s eyes, roll out small balls using ready to roll icing. Pipe the pupils onto the eye using a chocolate icing pen.
  • Once completely frozen, remove the bananas from the freezer and peel.
  • Dunk the top half of the banana into the melted chocolate, gently rolling so you get a longer coating on the back. Dunk the bottom of the banana in the chocolate to create the feet.
  • Carefully stick on the eyes and do the same with the M&Ms for the nose and two for the feet.
  • Place back in the freezer briefly to set and then serve.
