French toast in a chocolate - from Kiwicakes test kitchen

Going out to breakfast really appeals to me if I can order french toast with all the trimmings - caramelised grilled banana and smoky bacon with a generous drizzle of maple syrup. Yum! So I tried to recreate the flavour combination inside of a chocolate bar and its not half bad.

To whip up this unusual but quite moreish treat you will need:

250 grams milk chocolate melts (or try your favourite mild-tasting chocolate)
1/4 cup bacon candy if you can get it, or traditional salty dried bacon bits 
1/4 cup banana chips 
2 teaspoons of Nutrafresh sparkling banana powder
1/2 teaspoon maple-flavoured oil
1 teaspoon flo-coat  

Chop your banana chips and bacon candy/bits roughly - the chunkiness you can get away with will depend on the size and shape of the chocolate mould you are using. Then simply melt the chocolate pieces in a microwave set on its medium-power setting. Heat in short bursts stirring  between bursts until liquid. Stir in all the other ingredients to the chocolate and simply pour into your mould to set. Remember to 'drop' your freshly filled mould onto the bench as many times as it takes for the air bubbles to be forced out. 

I used a chocolate bar mould and this quantity made 6 chocolate bars. Happy experimenting!
