Trim away any excess and leave to set. Mold some tempered Komuntu couverture into the bonbons. Trim any excess. Use a piping bag to pipe in approximately 2g of banana caramel. Make the soft Komuntu ganache.
At 85°F (30°C), pipe 2g of ganache onto the banana caramel. Then insert a praliné cube.
Pipe ganache to cover the praliné, taking care to leave about 1mm. Leave to set. Seal with some tempered Komuntu couverture and cover with a transfer sheet. Leave to set. Make and cook the cocoa nib nougatine.
