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!
Easy to follow recipe! Also viewed video regarding no crack cheesecake! Results were incredible for my Valentine! Thank you Nestle for another winner!
I made this recipe this weekend. It was GREAT! We all loved it. The recipe was easy to follow and make, plus it tasted great. I would have more left if my parents didn't come over and gobble it up....lol. I will make another one for them next time.
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.
This recipe was great! My family loves cheesecake, and this was a 1 hit for them.
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.
