I have been creating molecular recipes the last few days to enter in the dessert contest. I decided to make a banana spilt and it turned out really well! Some molecular dishes don't have a lot of flavor and kind of a weird texture but this was delicious! This was my first time attempting  spherification. The first time I try any molecular thing something always goes wrong. This time it wasn't that bad except I had a problem getting the chocolate spheres to turn out right but eventually I got them to the point were the were just about right. I hope everybody enjoys this instructable on how to make a molecular banana split! If you like this instructable please vote for me in the dessert contest!
