Pineapple Cupcakes

This is a funny "lite" summer dessert! I made this for Father's Day. The only thing that would be a nice alternative would be Coconut Jello (but they don't make that).

1 box of Pineapple cake mix
1 tube of Cool Whip
3 tablespoons of crushed pineapple
1 regular size package of pineapple Jell-o
1 cup boiling water

1. Prepare the pineapple cake mix as directed on the box. I made a combination of mini and regular size cupcakes.
2. Allow cupcakes to cool for approximately 15 minutes. Prepare Jell-o - mix 1 cup of boiling water with pineapple Jell-o.
3. Using a straw, chopstick, skewer or other similar item and poke 3 holes (or more if you want) in each cupcake. Use a spoon to drizzle Jell-o over the cupcakes. (this can get a bit messy so make sure you do this over a plate or cookie sheet or something).
4. In a medium bowl, mix Cool Whip and crushed pineapple. Apply to tops of cupcakes.
5. Serve and enjoy.
