Let's Make It
1
Heat oven to 350°F.
2
Prepare cake batter as directed on package. Add dry pudding mix; beat 2 min. Spoon into 48 paper-lined mini muffin pan cups.
3
Bake 12 to 15 min. or until toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean. Cool in pans 10 min.; remove to wire racks. Cool completely. Meanwhile, press candies until softened; roll up to resemble carrots.
4
Spoon frosting into large bowl. Add COOL WHIP; whisk until blended.
5
Remove cupcakes from liners. Cut cupcakes horizontally in half; fill each with about 1 Tbsp. frosting. Top with remaining frosting, nuts and "carrots."
Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
Variation
Use 12 of the cupcakes to make cupcake push pops. Bake and cool cupcakes as directed; cut horizontally in half. Place bottom half of each cupcake in separate push pop container; cover with 1 Tbsp. frosting mixture and top half of cupcake. Top each with 1 Tbsp. frosting and 1/2 tsp. chopped nuts and 1 "carrot." Keep refrigerated.
Tip 2
How to Store
Keep refrigerated.
Tip 3
Note
If candies are too firm to roll up, microwave them on HIGH 4 or 5 sec. or just until softened before using as directed.
