  • These fun choc ices, with a creamy chocolate and banana ice cream middle and a chocolate coating which pops in your mouth are really easy to make and are perfect for kids’ parties


    • For the ice cream:
    • 500ml carton chilled, ready-made vanilla custard
    • 200g bar dark chocolate, melted
    • 1 ripe banana, mashed
    • For the coating:
    • 2 x 5g packets popping candy (we used strawberry flavoured Space Dust)
    • 300g (10oz) dark chocolate, melted
    • You'll also need:
    • 1-2 ice-cube trays
    • 20-24 lolly sticks


    • To make the ice cream: Warm the custard slightly, then stir in the melted chocolate and banana.

    • Spoon the mixture into ice-cube trays. When the mixture is cold, place the trays in the freezer and leave to freeze until the mixture is almost solid, then insert a lolly stick into each cube and leave to set fully.

    • When ice cream has set, and just before serving, stir the popping candy into the melted chocolate for coating.

    • Remove ice-cube trays from the freezer and take out frozen cubes. If necessary, dip base of the ice-cube tray into hot water to help release cubes. Dip each cube into the melted chocolate and let excess drain off. Place them on a sheet of baking parchment until set (this will happen very

    • quickly). Serve immediately.
