Fluffy Butterfinger cheesecake is a decadent fluffy and creamy cheesecake that has a chocolate flavored crust with perfectly cooked cheesecake center. Topped with loads of crumbles of Butterfingers, so every bite is rich and sinful! Butterfinger cheesecake is a creative flavor combination that pairs wonderfully together to make an unforgettable cheesecake.
My family loves cheesecake. My Grammie made this a staple of any holiday gathering. We would have plain or cherry. There has always been something I hated about the cherries from the can. Not sure what it was but I hated it, so I would always eat the plain one.
What makes this Butterfinger cheesecake stand out, is you make the crust with a boxed cake mix. Okay, before you start bringing in pitch forks hear me out. This really gives you a crust that will pair perfectly with the fluffy cheesecake. Sure, an Oreo or graham cracker crust is nice, but this unique crust is what adds a whole new element of flavor that makes it different.
If you follow me you know you know I have a deep-rooted love for cheesecake. Pumpkin Cheesecake bread is one that I make a ton in the fall and winter months. I even love swirled cheesecake swirl brownies (keto inspired). If it has cheesecake in the name, I am putting money on it that I will enjoy it. Cheesecake is one of my family's favorite things, and I love experimenting with new flavor combinations to see what is successful and what isn't.
This fluffy Butterfinger Cheesecake is so easy to make. I used to think it was so hard to make homemade cheesecake, but this recipe proves it wrong. You can have that homemade cheesecake flavor in an easy recipe. You might even have all these ingredients on hand so you don't have to head to the store for supplies.
Another great thing to remember is around Halloween after your kids head out and trick or treat make sure to raid their bags for Butterfingers. I also head to the store for that 50-75% off and stock up on candy. I toss it in the freezer so I have them on hand for later when I feel the urge to make this scrumptious cheesecake.
Can You Use Other Candy Bars
Yes! Don't feel you have to limit yourself to Butterfingers to make this cheesecake. You can take your favorite candy bars and transform them into this rich and fluffy cheesecake. Now, I love the mix of cheesecake and Butterfinger I feel it compliments each other nicely. But, you can use other candy bars. Rolo's, Reese's, Snickers, Milky Way, you name it, the sky is the limit.
Enjoy this Butterfinger fluffy cheesecake as much as we do!
