Frozen Chocolate dipped bananas

I am looking to dip frozen bananas in chocolate and was wondering if anyone has done this before and if you could tell me what type of machine to use and what is the effect since the bananas are frozen before dipping. It would be like dipping ice cream in chocolate. Any suggestion as i am new to this.See More
