Cocoa Mosa - Using Overripe Plantain

Admit it, you've always felt tingly sensation of guilt when you have to throw away over ripe plantain that may be too soft to be fried. For me, nothing goes to waste. Instead, they can be re-purposed into better things like this mini bite sized treats. The sweetness from the overripe plantain combined with the bitter chocolate flavor from the unsweetened cocoa powder makes it a highly irresistible treat.
