Recipe by Ambervim
READY IN: 30mins


  • 12
    cup milk, cold
  • 1
    (3 1/2 ounce) package vanilla flavor instant pudding mix
  • 1
    fully ripe banana, mashed
  • 10 34
    ounces lb cake, thawed, crumbled into fine crumbs (I think another yellow cake would work)
  • milk chocolate candy bar, chopped
  • 2
    tablespoons multi-colored candy sprinkles (or another decoration, nuts come to mind)


  • STIR milk and pudding mix in medium bowl with large spoon just until pudding mix is moistened. Immediately add bananas and cake crumbs; mix well.
  • TO PORTION CAKE BALLS Use cookie scoop to portion the cake mixture for each ball. Then, roll the cake balls between the palms of your hands to form smooth round balls.
  • SHAPE into 36 (1-inch) balls; place on waxed paper-covered rimmed baking sheet. Freeze 1 hour.
  • MELT chocolate in medium microwaveable bowl on HIGH 1-1/2 min., stirring after 1 minute
  • TO EASILY COAT THE CAKE BALLS Remove inner tines of disposable fork; set aside. Add cake balls, in batches, to bowl of melted chocolate. Use spoon or rubber scraper to evenly coat balls with chocolate. Remove balls with prepared fork.
  • If you are using lollipop or Popsicle stick, just skewer each pop before dipping.
  • Dip balls in chocolate; return to baking sheet. Top immediately with sprinkles or whatever you are using.
  • Let stand until coating is firm.
