When I first heard about Scoochmaroo's Cake Pop challenge I started brainstorming flavor combinations. I finally thought of making banana and nutella cake pops with the cake part being banana and the outside shell being nutella. The thing I love about cake pops is that there are two parts, the inside and the outside, so the flavor combinations are endless! These cake pops have the perfect mix of banana and nutella!  I hope everyone enjoys this instructable!

Step 1: Ingredients

Cake Ingredients:
About 1 cup of mashed bananas
1 package of  yellow cake mix
3/4 cup of milk
1/3 cup of oil
2 eggs
A dash of nutmeg
A dash of cinnamon

Frosting Ingredients:
1/2 cup of crisco
2 cups of powdered sugar
1 table spoon of vanilla extract.
3-6 tablespoons of hazelnut coffee creamer

Cake Pop Shell:
1/2 cup nutella
1 cup of meltable chocolate
1 tablespoon of coconut oil

Step 2: Baking the Cake

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all of the cake ingredients in a bowl and then pour into a greased 9x9 pan. Bake between 30 and 35 minutes. Let cool for at least 20 minutes

Step 3: Make the Frosting

Combine the Crisco and powdered sugar in a standing mixer and mix for about 1 minute or until it has a thick  frosting like consistency. Next add the vanilla to taste and then the hazelnut creamer until the frosting has a fairly smooth consistency.

Step 4: Making the Cake Balls

Now it's time for the fun part! Put the banana cake in a bowl and crumble it into very small pieces. Next add the frosting and mix it into the crumbs. You probably won't need all of the frosting. Just put in enough so that the cake mixture is fairly moist. I used most of my frosting but my cake balls ended up being a little to moist and broke easily. Next, take the cake and frosting mixture and roll it into balls that are about 1" tall. 

Step 5: Dipping the Cake Pops

Take the meltable chocolate and add about 1/2 cup of nutella and a little coconut oil. Follow the normal heating directions on the chocolates package just put in the coconut oil and nutella when you melt it.  Once the mixture has been melted, put the cake pops on a stick and dip them in the chocolate. Wait for it to harden and serve. Enjoy!
