  • Heat oven to 350°F.
  • Prepare cake batter and bake in 24 paper-lined muffin cups as directed on package. Cool just 30 min. (Cupcakes need to be warm when filled.)
  • Beat pudding mix and milk with whisk 2 min. Add peanut butter; mix well. Spoon into small freezer-weight resealable plastic bag; snip off one bottom corner of bag. Insert tip of bag into centre of each cupcake, then squeeze bag to pipe about 1 Tbsp. filling into cupcake.
  • Microwave Cool Whip and chocolate in small microwaveable bowl on MEDIUM 1-1/2 min. or until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring after 1 min. Dip tops of cupcakes in glaze; sprinkle with nuts.

How to Frost with Flair

Dip top of each cupcake in glaze, then twist slightly as you remove cupcake from glaze.

How to Store

Keep refrigerated.


If you have a pastry bag, use that to pipe the pudding into the cupcakes instead of the plastic bag.

    I've made these a couple of times and they always get rave reviews... I've swapped in a chocolate pudding mix for vanilla and they're great that way too!

    I used my plastic icing decorator. It made a very neat hole and worked well.
