Combine the boiling water, chocolate, cocoa and honey in the bowl of a food processor. Let stand for 3 or 4 minutes so the chocolate can soften. Puree until smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed. Add the banana chunks and puree until smooth.
Measure the water in a large liquid measuring cup with a pour spout, then add the banana mixture and stir to incorporate. Cool to room temperature.
If making ice pops using 3-ounce plastic cups or plastic popsicle molds, pour the mixture into them, dividing it equally. Leave about 1/3-inch of headroom at the top, as the frozen pops will expand. Add the plastic sticks to the molds as directed. If using paper cups, cover each with a small square of aluminum foil; make a slit in the center top; and insert wooden popsicle sticks into the cups. Freeze the molds or cups until the popsicles are thoroughly frozen; depending on the freezer this may take at least 4 and up to 8 hours. Remove them from the cups by dipping their outsides in warm water for 10 to 20 seconds (don't overdo it), and/or flexing the cups or molds until the popsicles loosen from the sides. If necessary, loosen the pops from the sides using a thin knife to break the vacuum.
If using a Zoku pop maker, cover and refrigerate the chocolate-banana mixture for several hours, until well chilled. Have the Zoku maker thoroughly frozen (24 hours). Insert the Zoku plastic sticks into its molds as directed. Pour the mixture into the Zoku molds up to the fill line. When the pops are thoroughly frozen, remove them from the molds using the orange tool as directed. Don't try to pry the pops from the molds using a knife, as the interior of the molds may be damaged. Add new plastic sticks and make a second round of pops, if desired.
Eat the pops immediately or freeze for later use.
