Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 1 hour + chilling
This was my first time making a cheesecake and this recipe was really easy!!! At the time I couldn't find chocolate wafers so I took two pre-made chocolate pie crust and popped them into a bag and crushed them up with a roller! It's a lot easier that way!!!
I really like this recipe. I actually baked my cheesecake at 300 for about 80 minutes and it cooked perfectly. Be sure to let it cool for at least one hour and refrigerate 24 hours. It will taste better. Also, I added more butterfingers to the recipe and melted butterscotch chips over the top, plus used chocolate graham crackers instead of the wafers.
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.
