Banana Flip Cereal Treat

A candy monkey’s up a tree with nary a banana in sight! But happily, there’s plenty of good eats within reach. A candy-coated cereal treat shaped with our Round Comfort Grip™ Cutter stands as the base for a pretzel trunk topped with jelly spearmint leaves.


Difficulty: Medium


Step 1

In advance: Make monkeys. Use candy colors to tint portions of melted white candy black, blue, light and dark yellow. Use piping method to mold candies without sticks, filling mold 2/3 full. Chill until firm.

Step 2

Make treetops. For each treetop, roll out 4 spearmint leaves on waxed paper to flatten and lengthen to 2-2 1/2 in. Tape over center hole of Flower Forming Cups. Pipe a 1 in. circle of melted candy in center of cup; position 4 leaves in candy, trimming ends to a V for a snug fit. Pipe a large dot of candy over leaves to secure. Chill until set.

Step 3

Prepare cereal treats and press into greased pan, 1 1/2 in. deep. Cut circles for base using Comfort-Grip cutter. Cover treats with melted candy. Chill until firm on waxed paper-covered board. Seal bottom with melted candy; let set. Turn treetop over and cut small opening in center to fit pretzel rod; cut same size opening in base. Trim end of pretzel flat; insert in treetop and secure with melted candy. Attach monkey to pretzel with melted candy; chill until firm. Trim about 1/2 - 3/4 in. off bottom of pretzel; insert in base and secure with melted candy. Attach confetti sprinkles to base with dots of candy. Place treats in party bags.
