    1 pkg. (3 oz.) JELL-O Strawberry Flavor Gelatin, divided
    1tub (10.4 oz.) COOL WHIP thawed
    1 tsp Vanilla extract
    1 cup boiling water

    1 pkg. (2-layer size) yellow cake mix
    1 pkg. (3.4 oz.) JELL-O Vanilla Flavor Instant Pudding
    3 eggs
    1 cup milk
    1/2 cup Creamy Peanut Butter


HEAT oven to 350F.

ADD 1 Tbsp. dry gelatin mix and 1 tsp vanilla to cool whip; 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.

MEANWHILE, beat cake mix, dry pudding mix, eggs, milk 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.

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.
