Notes
After microwaving the chocolate/coconut oil combination, the mixture may not look as though is has melted, but it is often softened enough to allow for smoothing during vigorous stirring. It is easy to scorch chocolate by overheating so less is more here! Using ½ of a large bananas makes dipping easier
