Good but RICH
This was very good but VERY rich! I would chop the butterfinger hearts smaller than in 1/4's only because it leave very big chunks when chewing.
this looks SO GOOD! i cant wait to make this for my fiance for valentines day!
My favorite dessert is CHEESECAKE! I enjoy trying different recipes. Your Peanut butter cheesecake was outstanding. This Valentine cheesecake was easy to prepare, but nothing special in taste even with the Butterfingers inside.
I made this for my husband as a Valentine's gift and he loved it. It was not that hard and turned out beautiful. It was a great success. I might use different candy next time I make it.
We enjoyed this recipe. It was after Valentine's Day so I could not use the hearts. I substituted mini butterfingers instead. That worked fine.
