If you have only made cupcakes in a muffin pan you MUST try them this way! I love easy. Instead of adding in the list of ingredients on the side of the cake box, I just added a can of soda to the mix!! Believe me, they turn out amazing.

  • Small mason jars are a fun container to use too. Besides cute, they are reusable. We love that. You don’t need to fill them with peanut butter but oh my goodness it is so wonderful if you do.
  • You could substitute hot fudge instead, either way you can’t go wrong.

They are the perfect size for everybody. With a scoop of gelato on top seeping inside the cupcake = yum!

Here’s what you need to make these 4 ingredient peanut butter filled cupcakes in a jar.

There are a variety of flavors you can use for the cake portion, but I wanted chocolate!!

  • I added chocolate chips into the batter, AND I topped them off with a rich scoop of this chocolate gelato to make it go from delicious to just out of this world!

Just follow these steps to make them:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
  2. Mix a can of soda with a box of cake mix
  3. Fill mini jars 3/4 of the way full
    1. you could fill 1/2 way full, then a bit of peanut butter if you wanted the cake layered
  4. Bake and when done press spoon down in middle and put 1 tbsp peanut butter into the center
  5. Serve while warm

Optional: if you want some easy extra topping mix 1 tub room temp strawberry cream cheese with 1 tub marshmallow creme.

Ingredients needed:

  1. Mini mason jars
  2. Chocolate cake mix
  3. Chocolate chips
  4. Peanut butter – we used creamy
  5. 1 can of soda – we used Coca Cola
  6. HemisFares gelato – we used chocolate

Looking for other easy desserts? The kids got a kick out of our other soda cake dessert too. So easy to do with just 2 ingredients and low in fat too.

Cupcakes layered with peanut butter and ice cream on top are amazing. Just don’t count the calories y’all, just enjoy.

If you’re making these for people coming over, pairing them with this wine gift idea is great too! We’ve made Crockpot blueberry cobbler using these jars too.
