  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Place paper baking cup in each of 24 regular-size muffin cups.
  • 2
    In large bowl, beat cake mix, water, peanut butter and eggs with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, then on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups.
  • 3
    Bake 15 to 21 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean and tops spring back when touched lightly in center. Cool in pans 10 minutes; remove from pans to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  • 4
    Reserve 1/4 cup of the frosting. Spread remaining frosting over tops of cupcakes. Sprinkle each cupcake with 1/2 teaspoon each chocolate chips and peanuts; press gently into frosting.
  • 5
    Spread about 1/2 teaspoon reserved frosting on flat sides of 2 graham snacks. Place candle between frosted sides of graham snacks; press gently together. Repeat with remaining snacks, frosting and candles. Place on cupcakes, pressing candles slightly into cupcakes to hold in place. Store loosely covered.

  • Instead of the teddy bear-shaped graham snacks, you can also use frosted animal crackers.
  • Vary the look of these cute cupcakes by experimenting with different flavors of frosting. Instead of the chocolate chips and peanuts, try any of the small Betty Crocker® candy decorations sold with Betty Crocker® decorating icings in your supermarket.
  • A collection of teddy bears on the center of the table and plates and cups with a teddy bear theme create the perfect setting for a teddy bear birthday celebration.
