Brownie Crusted Butterfinger Cheesecake

(I’ve added a PRINT button.  Hope this helps.)

I’m on a cheesecake kick it seems!  🙂

Actually I made this for our Pastor’s Appreciation Dinner.  Our pastor loves peanut butter and I wanted to make a special dessert.  This rich cheesecake was very tasty and gone within just a few minutes.

Butterfinger Cheesecake with a Brownie Crust

Bake your favorite brownie recipe in a spring form baking pan (I have this set) lined with parchment paper.

Cheesecake filling:

1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 tub 8 oz whipped topping
3 Butterfinger candy bars (2.1 oz ea), frozen and

Blend the first five ingredients in a large mixing bowl.  Fold in the whipped topping and crushed candy bars.  Spread the cheesecake mixture onto the brownie crust.  Sprinkle with crushed candy bars and brownie crumbs.  Cover and refrigerate overnight.

  4. This looks so good. Butterfinger posted this recipe link on their facebook page yesterday. So glad they did because you have a great site.

    • Thanks so much! And thanks for stopping by with the kind comments. I don’t get to contribute to the site as much as I want beings I’m so busy at work, but I hope to soon. Glad you stopped by. 🙂

  5. What size brownie mix do you need? 9×13 family size, or an 8×8? I’d like to try this gluten free, but the brownie mixes only come in the smaller size.

  6. Would this work with Reses? My boyfriend doesnt like butterfingers 😛
