Ingredients

Cupcakes

  • 24 foil baking cups
  • 1 can (14 oz) Eagle Brand® Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 3/4 cup Jif® Extra Crunchy Peanut Butter
  • 1 box (18.4 oz) Pillsbury™ Family Size Chocolate Fudge Brownie Mix
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup Crisco® Pure Canola Oil
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure almond extract

Frosting and Garnish

  • 1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup seedless strawberry jam
  • 12 small strawberries, halved, if desired

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.
