For a fun little bake for Hallowe’en, I made Witches’ Fingers. Not sure if they look more appetizing or creepy…either way, they were fun to make! The recipe can be found here. The only modification I made was that I used jam instead of decorating gel.

There’s something cozy about banana bread. Maybe it’s the fall weather (my favorite season!).
Making banana bread is super easy, especially since we seem to accumulate a number of ripe bananas over time (which we then conveniently throw into the freezer for later). Just make sure you freeze them well, and not put anything over or underneath the bananas (like something that has a sharp edge that would cut into the soft banana, making them leak- not pretty!). I learned the hard way.
This banana bread is similar to this one I made before, but adding walnuts in – extra crunch and yum!
So here it is! I combined the previously made coconut banana bread and chocolate pudding to make this super trifle! We had a Christmas party, and I brought this along. This trifle scores more points as a fun dessert than an elegant one.
Since there wasn’t any baking involved in this trifle (other than the banana bread), this is 0.5 of a bake, which means I’m on my 10th bake! Woohoo.
- Banana bread
- 2 barely ripe bananas, sliced
- Chocolate pudding (about 3 cups)
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup toasted chopped pecans/walnuts
- Sweetened whipped cream and chocolate shavings/cocoa powder/raspberries for garnish
- Cut banana bread into bite-sized chunks; spread half of them over the bottom of a trifle bowl (or any deep glass serving bowl)
5. Cover with plastic wrap, chill in fridge overnight.
6. Before serving, spoon/pipe whipped cream around the edge of bowl. Sprinkle with shaved chocolate and raspberries. Or instead of the shaved chocolate, dust a very small amount of cocoa powder on top.
