These are amazing! I found a recipe for banana balls that sounded good, but was horrible when I made them. I experimented with different ingredients and amounts and came up with a totally different recipe that is amazing! I have made them three times this week already due to everyone requesting more.
Banana Bread Balls
2 ½ Cups vanilla wafers (about 70 wafers), finely crushed
½ cup ripe mashed banana
1 package (8oz) cream cheese, softened
¾ cup confectioners powdered sugar
½ - ¾ cup finely chopped pecans (I like to toast mine first)
12 oz. white candy coating (I used Almond Bark)
Yellow food coloring
Mix crushed vanilla wafers, banana, cream cheese, powdered sugar, and pecans in a medium size bowl until well blended. Place the mixture in the freezer for 30 minutes to chill.
Melt candy coating according to directions on package. Put about 1/8 cup into separate bowl and add yellow food coloring to get desired color.
Remove vanilla wafer mixture from freezer. Shape into 1 inch balls and dip in white candy coating. Place onto waxed paper. Drizzle with melted yellow candy coating and sprinkle with pecans. Allow to completely dry and harden on wax paper before storing. Store in refrigerator.
Hope you enjoy them as much as we have!
