Lemon Banana Cake Balls

Original Recipe from Good Things Catered
*I grabbed the wrong box of cake mix when I started this recipe. I didn't intend for these to have the lemon flavor. But it turned out to be a good combination of flavors. So I went with it!

1 package lemon cake mix
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
2 ripe bananas, mashed
1 cup fat free buttermilk
1/2 cup apple sauce
3/4 cup All Whites (3 eggs)
1 container of lemon store bought icing
1 block of vanilla bark

Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 9 x 13 pan with cooking spray.

Combine above ingredients.

Spread evenly in pan.

Bake 32-35 minutes or until done.

Cool completely.

Add cooled cake to large mixer bowl and add the frosting and stir to combine completely.

Using a cookie scoop make rounded cake balls and place on a parchment lined baking sheet.

When all cake balls are rolled, place baking sheet into freezer.

Once first tray of balls are frozen hard (I left them in overnight), melt vanilla bark according to package directions.

Stir with spoon until completely smooth.

Taking one ball at a time, dip into candy melts, lightly tap to form an evenly-covered front and place onto wax paper.

Repeat with all cake pieces and let dry completely.

Decorate as desired and serve.
