Directions

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Add 1 Tbsp. dry gelatin mix to frosting; stir gently until blended. Refrigerate until ready to use. Add boiling water to remaining gelatin mix in medium bowl; stir 2 min. until completely dissolved. Pour into 8x4-inch loaf pan sprayed with cooking spray. Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm.
  3. Meanwhile, beat cake mix, dry pudding mix, eggs, cold water and peanut butter with mixer until blended. (Batter will be thick.) Spoon into 24 paper-lined muffin cups. Bake 18 to 21 min. or until toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean. Cool completely.
  4. Use paring knife to cut 1-1/4-inch wide piece from top of each cupcake, being careful to not cut through to bottom of cake; set removed centers aside. Cut gelatin into 24 cubes; place in cupcakes. Cover with removed cupcake centers, pressing gently into cupcakes to secure. Frost cupcakes.

These are very good. It's also fun to change it up a bit and experiment with different flavor combinations. My fave is orange cream/vanilla. Yum. Incidentally, I have found it MUCH easier to score the tops of the cupcakes with an "X", then insert the jello. It saves quite a bit of time and effort, instead of trying to carefully cut a square on each cupcake. A deep "X" will do the same thing, but without having to remove any cake, then plop the top back on.

I made this, and it tasted wonderful! While I'm not a peanut butter fan, I think the peanut butter flavor waas the best part. And the icing, too!
