How cute are these Halloween treats? These decadent little brownies are made from walnuts and gooey dates — delicious, but that's not all. Each brownie is topped with a frozen banana slice, then coated in white chocolate to make adorable little ghosties. When you bite into the brownie, you get a hidden piece of melting frozen banana beneath a sweet white chocolate shell.
