  1. Preparation:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (177°C).
    • Line five loaf pans (8″ x 3¾” x 2½”) with parchment paper and lightly spray with cooking spray.
  2. Mix the Batter:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the red velvet cake mix, eggs, vegetable oil, and mashed bananas. Beat at medium speed for about 2 minutes until well mixed.

    • Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
    • Allow the bread to cool in the pans for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

    • Once cool, melt the white candy melts in a microwave, stirring at short intervals to avoid burning.
    • Drizzle the melted white chocolate over the bread loaves in a decorative pattern.
    • Add sprinkles for a festive touch.
