Betty Crocker™ rainbow mix decorating decors
Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Grease bottom only of 13x9-inch pan. In large bowl, beat cake mix, water, oil, whole eggs and mashed bananas with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, then on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Stir in chocolate chips. Pour into pan.
Bake 38 to 42 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 15 minutes.
In small microwavable bowl, microwave frosting uncovered on High 20 seconds; stir. Microwave 5 to 10 seconds longer or until very soft and smooth; spread evenly over cake. Garnish as desired. Store loosely covered.
Bananas that are turning brown and soft are just right for using in recipes like this cake.
Brown bananas? Toss them, unpeeled, in the freezer. They'll be ready when you need them for any recipe using mashed bananas. Simply thaw, peel and mash.
For a change, serve the cake in triangles instead of squares. Cut the cake lengthwise in half and crosswise into fourths; cut squares diagonally in half.
For a room temperature cake, cool about 1 hour, and do not heat frosting before spreading.
