Cookie Dough Butterfinger Cheesecake
With a chocolate chip cookie base and Butterfinger chunks in the cheesecake topping, these Cookie Dough Butterfinger Cheesecake could become your favorite treat ever!!!
Every August, my husband’s family has a family reunion at the local swimming pool. It’s Lisa’s favorite day of the year because the family has the pool to their selves!
What’s a family reunion without food? It’s just not possible! This was a crazy day. Andie had softball games in Heber and it’s 45 minutes away from our house, the family reunion, and Andie was performing with the Drill team at the football game!
I wanted to make sure my family was represented in the pot luck and this was our contribution. My niece’s husband described them as “everything plus the kitchen sink!” So rich and divine and well worth the calories!

1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup brown sugar
