So why do you need to thin the chocolate?  Does it not stick to the banana?  Or does it not set up well?

Its just way too thick. before thinning, it would have been about 3/4" chocolate on all sides which gets REALLY hard to bite into.

Thanks pinokeeo and Olive Juice for the melting tips. I do have a double boiler set. I haven't cooked anything in a very long time. I make meat loafs in regular glass bread loaf pans in the toaster oven. My neighbors gave me their stove with a working oven, so I'm stoked. My burners worked but the stove was an original 1945 hotpoint wide one with side drawer, and that was the year the house was built.

I cannot wait to try to melt chocolate and put over bananas. I was starving when I read this earlier.

The last time I tried to use my full-sized loaf pan was disastrous. Because the top and bottom were so close to the heating elements they were burned black and smoke was pouring out of the toaster oven after 15 minutes, and the house smelled SO BAD! So now I stick to using my little half sheet muffin cups for meatloaf. Seeing as there's just two of us it actually works out better anyway. We have one functional burner on our cooktop, and i'm using functional pretty loosely. boiling the water in the saucepan in the picture takes 20 minutes.

HAHAHAHAAA the title of this alone rocks. i love when maeby comes up with the ingenious idea of throwing a banana and taking a dollar... anywhoooo this looks DIVINE!!! i got a freak batch of bananas last weekend. they're still greenish except they have the spots they get when they're about to go bad [and no they're not plantains or any fancy variation] anywho this will be awesomeeeee right now especially with the warm weather. way better than heating up the house to make banan bread

That'd work fine. I find almond bark tastes a little less chocolatey, but is otherwise an adequate (and cheaper) replacement. I say go for it!

Seriously guys, do it! They're SO good!
