The Banana Split Cake
Banana Split Cupcakes. Hands Down, my favorite dessert. Ever.
But I digress. You care about the cake pops today.
One recipe of my Best Banana Cake, baked and cooled
One half recipe of my Cream Cheese Frosting (at room temperature)
Pink Candy Melts
Strawberry Flavoring(oil-based flavoring, not alcohol-based)
Dark Chocolate Candy Melts(in a squeeze bottle or decorating bag)
Rainbow Nonpareils Sprinkles
1 Tbsp. Vegetable oil
Runts candies (which, by the way, no longer includes "cherry," which was the whole reason I got them... but I made do.)
Make the Cake Balls
Follow the recipe for my favorite Banana Cake. When I'm using it for Cake Pops, I make it in a 9x13 pan.
cream cheese icing.
Mix the crumbs and icing until it makes a ragged dough, adding more icing slowly if the crumbs don't start to stick together.

Refrigerate the cake balls at least three hours or overnight.
*As always, if you're in a rush, you can stick them into the freezer for 30 minutes, then move them to the refrigerator, but they have a better chance of falling off of the stick or cracking if you make them this way.
*I use LorAnn brand flavoring. It is oil-based, so it won't make the candy seize (like the kind you'd buy at the grocery store can). I can buy this flavoring at one of the "finer" grocery stores in my area, or at a kitchen store, or online.
Remember that to keep the cake pop from falling off of the stick, always dip the stick into the candy before you insert the stick into the cake ball.
