Pisang cokelat (banana chocolate in Indonesian) or sometimes colloquially abbreviated as piscok,[1] is an Indonesian sweet snack made of slices of banana with melted chocolate or chocolate syrup, wrapped inside thin crepe-like pastry skin and being deep fried.[2] Pisang cokelat is often simply described as "choco banana spring rolls".[1] It is often regarded as a hybrid between another Indonesian favourites; pisang goreng (fried banana) and lumpia (spring roll).

The type of banana being used is similar to pisang goreng; preferably pisang uli, pisang kepok or pisang raja sereh. The skin being used is usually the readily available lumpia skin.[3] In Indonesia, indeed pisang cokelat is regarded as a variant of pisang goreng, and categorized under gorengan (Indonesian assorted fritters) and sold together with some popular fried stuff; such as fried tempeh, tahu goreng and pisang goreng. It is popular snack, that can be found from humble street side kakilima cart to cafes and fancy restaurants.[2]

Pisang cokelat is almost identical to Philippines turon, which is actually a banana lumpia, except in this Indonesian version chocolate content is a must, not optional.
