Assuming that this would be on a weekday, the fastest would be IC to Antwerp at 11.35 and high-speed Thalys from there (total travel time 2h08), but also the most expensive unless you can book Thalys some time in advance and it may be too late for that (and advance reservations are obligatory for Thalys). Or, at 12.15 you can catch the IC to Mechelen and IC from there to Amsterdam Centraal (total travel time 2h58), I don't know the cost but with IC it is the same irrespective of when you buy it, I would guess around €35, but I can't be bothered to check if you can't!
