Steps

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Place foil baking cup in each of 24 regular-size muffin cups. In medium bowl, stir together condensed milk and peanut butter until blended.
  • 2 In large bowl, beat brownie mix, eggs, oil, buttermilk and almond extract with electric mixer on medium speed 2 minutes or until blended. Spoon 1 tablespoon brownie batter into each muffin cup; top each with 1 tablespoon of the peanut butter filling. Spoon remaining brownie batter evenly over filling.
  • 3 Bake 25 to 35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out almost clean. Cool 10 minutes. Remove cupcakes from pans to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
  • 4 In large bowl, beat cream cheese, butter and vanilla with electric mixer on medium speed until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Gradually add powdered sugar, beating until smooth. Add jam; stir once or twice to create swirls of jam in frosting. Spoon into decorating bag or large resealable freezer plastic bag (cut 1/2-inch opening from 1 corner of plastic bag). Pipe or spread frosting on each cupcake. Garnish each with half of a strawberry. Store covered in refrigerator.
