Woman's Weekly recipe 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

We bought our popping candy from A Bag of Sweets, in Sevenoaks, Kent. To order, call 01732 464396, or visit


  1. To make the ice cream: Warm the custard slightly, then stir in the melted chocolate and banana.
  2. 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.
  3. When ice cream has set, and just before serving, stir the popping candy into the melted chocolate for coating.
  4. 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
  5. quickly). Serve immediately.
