Butterfinger Cheesecake Brownies
Butterfinger Cheesecake Brownies are rich, decadent, and oh so satisfying! Who doesn’t love Butterfingers? Nowadays, Butterfingers also make baking bits that you can bake with, so that’s what I added to these luscious brownies that made them so special. I started with a Chocolate Chip Cookie dough and then substituted the Butterfinger Baking Bits for the chocolate chips. Then I added a delectable cheesecake layer like I do for my many cheesecake brownie recipes. Then I top the cheesecake layer with more Butterfinger cookie dough and then sprinkle more Butterfinger Baking Bits on top. Whoa! Yes these brownies are something special!
Butterfingers are some of our favorites candy bars. I love making desserts with Butterfingers. Whether cupcakes, cookies or blondies, all turn out wonderfully. Adding candies always make cookies or brownies better. 🙂 Butterfinger bars with a luscious cheesecake layer also came out even better than expected.
I made these and 11 other cheesecake brownies last month when I had a baking marathon in my kitchen so I could restock my freezer with goodies so we could give them out as gifts to co-workers and friends. Because I knew we would be in the moving process and I wouldn’t be able to do any more baking, I stocked up so we wouldn’t run out.
Well, moving day is finally in sight. (After nine long months, and almost a year since we originally put our house on the market last year so we could move closer to our church, the day is upon us). We are supposed to close on our new house Wednesday and move in the following Wednesday.
I’m busy packing up the stuff in our rental house that’s not already in storage. Once we start unpacking boxes, I don’t plan on doing much cooking for about two weeks after move-in date until I can get us all settled. Even still, I have 15 recipes that need posting so I’ll try to get those posted during the next few weeks even while we’re in the moving process.
For those of you who love Butterfingers, you’ve just got to give Butterfinger Cheesecake Brownies a try real soon. I assure you, everyone who tastes these will be drooling after the first bite. 🙂 Seriously.

Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients for the cookie dough. Butterfinger Baking Bits are great to work with.
Place softened butter in a mixing bowl. Add sugar, brown sugar, eggs, salt, baking soda and vanilla.
Cream ingredients with an electric mixer until smooth.
Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods. Add Butterfinger Baking Bits.
Stir ingredients with a wooden spoon to combine.
Spray a 13″ x 20″ jelly roll pan with cooking spray. Spread one-half to two-thirds of the cookie dough into prepared pan.
I used these ingredients to make the cheesecake layer.
Mix ingredients with an electric mixer until no lumps remain.
Spread cheesecake layer over top of cookie dough layer.
Sprinkle remaining cookie dough and remaining Butterfinger Baking Bits on top of cheesecake layer.
Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Cut into 48 bars to serve.
These are great brownies to take to tailgating parties.
The cheesecake layer makes these taste divine!
Take a tray of these delightful brownies to your next office party and everyone will rave over them.
