    Chocolate Chip Banana Cake Pops

    So there was this one time that I kept making cake balls... just all different kinds of them.. and then.. and then....

    Oh yea, that's right now!

    So this time I made Chocolate Chip Banana Cake Pops and they are divine. D-VINE!

    If you would like to make them (which you should) you will need:

    1 box yellow cake mix (prepared as directed EXCEPT stir 1/8 tsp baking soda into dry mix AND use 1/4 cup less water than package directions)

    1 cup mashed bananas (2-3 med. ripe bananas)

    1/4 or less container of cream cheese cake frosting

    1 cup mini chocolate chips

    Chocolate Almond Bark or candy coating for dipping


    The "basic cake ball mix" for these pops is a bit different because the banana cake itself is so moist.

    So let's start with the cake directions. No pics because I made it in the evening and the lighting was TERRIBLE! But it's really easy.

    Banana Cake

    Prepare yellow cake mix as directed on box EXCEPT stir 1/8 tsp baking soda into dry mix AND use 1/4 cup less water than package directions.

    Add mashed bananas and bake according to directions.

    Let cool after baking.


    Now for the Cake Pops.....

    Like I said before, this cake is so moist already you may not even need to add the frosting. Crumble the cooled cake into a large bowl then decide what consistency you want.

    I used one big scoop of cream cheese frosting and that may have even been a bit too much. I like my cake balls very cakey... not truffle like. Click HERE if you need to be reminded how to make basic cake balls.

    Now add 1 cup of mini semi sweet chocolate chips and mix.

    With this mixture make your cake balls....

    Put them in the freezer for at least an hour. I have found that when making cake POPS it is better to put them in the freezer rather than refrigerator. They are more firm when you insert the stick.

    Again, you can click HERE to be reminded of how to dip cake pops..... or here is a picture of me making some Valentine cake pops.


    I've said it before... I'll say it again... I love cake balls and pops because you can do so much with them. so much on the decoration end and the flavor end. They sound like a lot of work but it's worth it to try... you'll be hooked :)


    And then there was a photo shoot.....

    Chocolate Chip Banana Cake Pops......

    Um, yes plesae!


    Happy Baking!!!

    These look amazing! Okay, I have to confess that I've never made or eaten a Cake Pop. I know, it's unthinkable, but true. These look so fun and so good, so there may be Cake Pops in my near future! Thanks so much for sharing these. xo

    Yum! I think that the cream cheese frosting is key. Is there any other kind of frosting?

    March 28, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAllison @ Alli 'n Son

    You can use any frosting :))).... I normally use cream cheese... Not sure why!

    March 28, 2011 | Registered CommenterSugarDerby

    Ah thanks for the reply. I made these last night but instead of putting chocolate chips, I spiked it with some rum...hehehe.... and instead of cream cheese frosting, I did vanilla rum frosting and dip them in chocolate :]

    These look delicious. I appreciate you sharing your idea. I'm not sure if I will try this one, but it is worth trying especially because I like banana's.

    May 4, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLouise

    These look great and I am sure they also taste great! I loooove making cake pops and I am dying to try this recipe, but I have a question....When do you add the bananas? Do you add it to the cake mix and then blend it or do you add it after it's blended?

    May 25, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKb

    yep. making these next. ;D

    June 24, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMiss Candiquik
