Chocolate is often mixed with fruit and alcohol. Today's chocolate truffle from Hawaii (from Sweet Paradise Chocolatier) combined local (Hawaiian) apple banana and Maui rum. The rum was not really detectable, but the filling tasted like authentic island banana.
Since today was Day #2 of Chocolate, Banana and Cherries Theme Week, I paired this banana and rum truffle with a tiny sip of homemade cherry syrup and kirsch (cherry liqueur) -- also good with chocolate and/or vanilla ice cream. A variant of this combination is likely to turn up later this week, in the form of an adult banana split.
