making this for a dinner party tomorrow night. hope it turns out as nicely as this picture!
1 pkg. (2-layer size) chocolate cake mix
1 cup cold milk
1 pkg. (4-serving size) JELL-O Vanilla Instant Pudding
1/2 cup KRAFT Smooth Peanut Butter
1/2 cup dry roasted peanuts
2 squares BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate, melted
1-1/2 cups thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping(i've used real whip cream instead)
PREHEAT oven to 350°F. Prepare and bake cake mix as directed on package in two greased and floured 9-inch round cake pans. Cool 10 min.; remove from pans. Cool completely on wire racks. Meanwhile, pour milk into medium bowl. Add dry pudding mix. Beat 2 min. or until well blended. Add peanut butter; beat well. Refrigerate until ready to use.
MIX peanuts and melted chocolate; stir until evenly coated. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto waxed paper-covered baking sheet. Refrigerate 10 min. or until firm.
PLACE one of the cake layers on cake platter; spread with 1 cup of the pudding mixture. Cover with remaining cake layer. Gently stir whipped topping into remaining pudding mixture. Spread over top and side of cake. Decorate with chocolate peanut clusters. Store leftover cake in refrigerator.
