1 cup cold milk
1 pkg. (3.4 oz.) Vanilla Flavor Instant Pudding

HEAT oven to 350°F. Prepare and bake cake mix as directed on package in 2 greased and floured 9-inch round cake pans. Cool 10 min.; remove from pans. Cool completely on wire racks. Meanwhile, beat milk and pudding mix with whisk 2 min. Add peanut butter; beat well. Refrigerate until ready to use.
