Let's Make It
Heat oven to 350ºF.
Prepare cake batter as directed on package. Add pineapple, bananas, 1/2 cup nuts and vanilla; mix well. Spoon into 36 paper-lined muffin cups.
Bake 21 to 24 min. or until toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean. Cool cupcakes in pan 10 min. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.
Spoon frosting into medium bowl. Add COOL WHIP; whisk until blended. Spread onto cupcakes; sprinkle with remaining nuts.
How to Easily Fill Muffin Cups
Filling muffin cups with muffin or cupcake batter can be a messy task. Make it neat and easy by using an ice cream scoop to fill the cups. This also ensures that an equal amount of batter is portioned into each muffin cup.
Fit pastry bag with desired decorating tip. Spoon enough COOL WHIP mixture into prepared bag to fill about halfway. Use to pipe COOL WHIP mixture onto cupcakes, refilling bag with remaining COOL WHIP mixture when necessary. Or if you don't have a pastry bag, you can use a resealable plastic bag instead. Spoon COOL WHIP mixture into bag, then cut piece off one bottom corner of bag before using to frost cupcakes.
