Encona Tangerine Pumpkins & Banana Ghosts with Chilli Chocolate Dipping Sauce

Serves: 4


  • 4 bananas
  • 24 chocolate chips
  • 4 tangerines
  • 1 stalk of celery
  • 400g dark chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 250ml double cream
  • 30g butter
  • Few drops of Encona Carolina Reaper Chilli Sauce


  1. Peel the bananas and cut them in half. Place the cut side down onto a board so the banana halves stand up.
  2. Create the perfect ghost faces by using the chocolate chips to make ghost eyes and mouths.
  3. Peel the tangerines and cut the celery lengthwise into thirds and then across into 1/2 inch pieces. Add a chopped celery piece into the top of each peeled tangerine to resemble pumpkins.
  4. For the chocolate sauce combine the chocolate, cream and butter in a heavy saucepan.
  5. Cook over very low heat until all the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth
  6. Add a few drops of the Encona Carolina Reaper Chilli sauce and give one final mix.

Heelys Rolls Into Spring With New Collection

Heelys, the original two-in-one wheely shoe launched in 2000, is preparing for the upcoming Easter holidays with its new spring collection. Ideal for encouraging an active, healthy lifestyle, the stylish designs will ensure kids (big and small) will roll through the holidays with ease.

The collection consists of 19 designs, including three brand new Heelys shapes: Reserve Ex, Reserve Low and Pro 20 Half Flood. The Reserve Ex has a basketball shoe style, while the Reserve Low and Pro 20 Half Flood tap into the current Y2K trend for an extra chunky sole.

Match your Heelys to your mood, with designs split across two main aesthetics – a darker colour scheme vs. a lighter, spring-inspired palette. Think camouflage print, graffiti text and paint drips contrasting with pastel colours, tie-dye, metallic laces, foil and rainbow print.

Available in the UK and Europe on the Heelys website and retailers, the collection is available in sizes C12-7 across single or two-wheeled styles. RRPs range from £49.99 to £69.99.
