  • 1 box chocolate cake mix
  • 2 containers HemisFares chocolate gelato (or flavors of your choice to top when done)
  • 1/2 c chocolate chips * optional - but delicious
  • 1 c creamy peanut butter
  • 1 can soda (dark soda is best, or use ingredients on cake mix to make batter)


  • Mix together well your box of cake mix and can of soda. Mix until there are no lumps remaining.
  • Fold in your chocolate chips.
  • Spray lightly the inside of small mason jars (4 oz size) and put 1/2 c. of batter (don't fill more than 1/2 way full since they will rise) in each one. Put all on a cookie sheet and put in the oven.
  • Bake in the oven for 27 minutes or so at 350 degrees or until cupcakes spring back when touched gently in the middle...do NOT over bake.
  • When slightly cooled use a small spoon or apple corer and make a hole in the center of your cupcakes. Spoon a small spoonful of peanut butter into the center of each one.
  • Scoop Hemisfares chocolate gelato on to each one and add a bit of sprinkles if you wish. Enjoy!!
