Hi, my name is David Levine. I own Illinois Nut and Candy. We're online at Raisingthecandybar.com. Hello, today we're talking about how you easily make a chocolate covered banana. One of the easiest ways to make a chocolate covered banana is by having the right chocolate. You could always use a regular tempering kettle or a double boiler to create chocolate like we would for other chocolate confections, except the trick to making a chocolate covered banana is not using the same quality chocolate, it's using a chocolate that's specially formulated for putting in the freezer and making chocolate deserts and toppings. So today what we're going to do is we're going to make chocolate covered bananas using specially formulated chocolate that has a very high oil content. So what we do like with all projects is we take the banana, we peel it. We get all the excess off of the peel. We then take a stick and you can break the bottom piece off, take a stick and stick the banana which really important is after you've stuck the banana, take this banana and put it in the freezer for a little bit, at least an hour, hour and a half. That will allow the banana to harden. Once the banana has hardened and you take it out of the freezer, you can take the banana and place it into the melted chocolate. Unlike normal chocolate where you need it to temper, a frozen banana does not need to temper. You can see the chocolate as we stand here and talk, the chocolate will automatically begin to harden. We can then take the chocolate and banana, bring it over to the cooling stand. It takes a good hour or so for the chocolate and the banana to be nice and ready to go or right after it's dipped and you want to dig right in, you could do that as well. Thank you for watching today, and once again my name is David Levine with Illinois Nut and Candy. We're online at Raisingthecandybar.com and have a sweet day.
