Mine turned out a little undercooked in the center but still very good. I'm not a big fan of the chocolate wafer cookie crust though. The butterfinger flavor seemed great to me, and I loved the butterscotch on top!
I made this cheesecake for Christmas and it went over very well. I did add 4 butterfingers to the batter and left off the butterscotch topping. Overall, a very good recipe.
OK SO I MADE IT 2 MORE TIMES SINCE MY LAST REVIEW AND DOUBLED THE AMOUNT OF BUTTERFINGER FROM 3 TO 6 INSIDE AND IT WAS PERFECT AND EVERYBIT AS GOOD AS I WANTED IT TO BE! =)
AFTER MAKING A FEW OTHER OF THE CHEESECAKES, I REALLY THOUGHT THIS ONE WOULD BE MY FAVORITE. I FOUND THAT THE RECIPE ITSELF WAS GREAT! THE ONLY THING I HAD AN ISSUE WITH WAS WHEN IT WAS FINISHED THE BUTTERFINGER FLAVOR JUST WASN'T STRONG ENOUGH, ALMOST NON-EXISTANT. TODAY I AM GOING TO ATTEMP THIS CHEESECAKE AGAIN, HOWEVER I AM GOING TO DOUBLE THE AMOUNT OF BUTTERFINGER INSIDE OF THE CHEESECAKE.
