Piscok, an abbreviations of pisang-coklat, roughly translate into “Chocolate Banana”. But Piscok is different from the choco banana usually found in Japan or America where a banana is freeze-dried and then dipped into chocolate. This Piscok is deep fried banana and melted chocolate wrapped in lumpia skin like dough, giving the combination of crispy skin and warm, sweet, banana and chocolate.

The melted chocolate are usually caramelized, soaking through the skin, making it crispier. The banana gone soft from the frying process, enveloped by melted chocolate. Mm… Perfect! 👌
I imagine this will be good eaten with cheese or ice cream.

A twist for this snack is usually the topping, getting rid of the chocolate and replacing it by different flavors of jams. Strawberry and Passion Fruit are the most common one. Shouldn’t be called Piscok anymore though, but it’s already glued into the memory!

Try it if you found it! Won’t regret it, I swear!
