Chocolate Chip Butterfinger Cheesecake Bars

I’m back on track this month…being I posted my Two Sweetie Pies recipe swap a week early last month. Ay, yi, yi… just another reminder to slow down and quit overextending. Do you do that? I love to volunteer in my community, but I bit off more than I could chew this year. Well, these decadent Chocolate Chip Butterfinger Cheesecake Bars made me (and all those who I shared these with) forget my troubles. A chocolate chip cookie dough bottom, topped with Butterfinger candy bars, cheesecake, then more cookie dough. Is your mouth watering yet? It should be!

        1. I’ve actually never had a butterfinger before, I’m guessing it’s a American candybar?

          Are they any good?

        2. Given the rave reviews I’ve had from MeetUp AND dance class friends for your oatmeal cookies with white chocolate, I’m very confident this is another home run cookie – in bar form =) Even without the experience of Liz Berg cookies, one needs only look at your photos and see the scrumptiousness!

        3. Lots of big flavors in this treat! I still say you need to do a tutorial on how to cut goodies for perfect presentation:@)

        4. What a spectacular dessert! It can be easy to overextend yourself, and sometimes hard to get out of any of those commitments! Congratulations to you on all your hard work.

        5. I definitely tend to overextend myself like you and most women do in this society. Thank you for the reminder that we need to slow down sometimes Liz 🙂 These bars would definitely motivate any of us to slow down and take a break to enjoy the delectable flavors that these bars bring. They look delicious!

        6. Relax and just bake 😉 Maybe you need an assistant ? I’ll volunteer for sure lol It’s been years since I’ve eaten butterfingers *sigh* But then most supermarket here don’t sell it .

        7. It’s always so hard to say “no” to worthwhile projects and easy to get too busy for our own good! These bars look sooooo delicious. Heading over to Hugs and Cookies to have a look see…..

        8. Danielle has the sweetest recipes! :). These sound too good!

        9. Delicious!! Oh my goodness! Do you think butterfingers taste different now than they used to? I think they do haha. These look great though!

        10. So incredible, Lizzy! My husband is a Butterfinger nut, and I know he’d love these. Great recipe!

        11. Liz, I about fell out of my chair on this one. They look AMAZING!!!! This has just jumped up to number 1 on my “to make” list. Thanks!

        12. Butterfingers? And cheesecake? This looks TOO good Liz. I need to make these as soon as possible. You’ve made a pregnant woman very hungry 🙂

        13. So many delicious tastes all in one bar! This is a great dessert for someone like me who can’t decide which dessert to make. Make these and I can have it all . 🙂

        14. Yes, but did you husband like these? They do look very good. Good on you for doing all that volunteering xx

        15. These bars look like butterfinger and cheesecake bliss, love them!


        17. You’re killing me with these yummy desserts, oh my goodness, this is another winner, Lizzy. By the way, I’m also very, very impressed with your cutting skills. I can bake but when it comes to cutting it, I”m quite a mess, I can’t cut clean and straight for the life of me!

        18. Wow these sound deadly! Butterfingers with Cheesecake OMG! These are on my list to make next time. Thanks for sharing.

        19. Liz I was hoping when I read Butterfinger that you were referring to the chocolate bars because they’re one of my favourites! This recipe looks right up my alley! And thank you for the sweet words about my book launch 🙂

        20. These are seriously rich and addictive!

        21. Hi Lizzy, I am trying very hard to catch up with your posts! It has been a very busy few months for me. Love these choc chip butterfinger cheesecake bars! I will have to fight with the kids for them hah! hah!

        22. The addition of butter finger on these bars sound perfectly YUMMY 🙂

        23. Your bars just made me long for chocolate Liz and I am at the office now so I guess I will have to wait to get back home! They look perfect!

        24. These sound amazing as always! Butterfinger is a great name.

        25. I can imagine the combination of the creamy cheesecake with the slightly crunchy butterfingers…looks delicious Liz.
          Have a lovely week 🙂

        26. What beautiful looking bars Liz… Nothing is better than chocolate and peanut butter!!!!

        27. Oh dear, just when I thought my resolve was set. These look to good to be true and I’m sure they’ll haunt me until I make them.

        28. Liz,
          since discovering this blog, my ass has gotten larger.

          Damn you.


        29. Oh, Liz!!!! These bars are driving me nuts…The combination of cheesecake and chocolate chip cookies are very appealing. Mmmm!!!!

        30. After making a couple of cookie recipes now, I think I need to move on to bars. But bars are thicker than cookies and if I eat at the same rate as cookies…I’d be twice as big! But seriously, these choco chip butterfinger cheesecake bars (just the name itself!) look so good!!!

        31. Oh my! That looks FANTASTIC! Will be putting this on my to-bake list. Lovely post…

        32. What fantastic flavors for a cheesecake. I wish I could grab two off the screen. 🙂

        33. Wow! These looks so chewy and delicious. I love all the layers. Sign me up for a piece or two. Have a super weekend. BAM

        34. This is foodgasm x 10!! LOVE it!

        35. Liz, pure decadence – what a treat these bars must be! I have never actaully eaten a Butterfinger before but I have seen them in the “British Shop” downtown – now this recipe of yours is a good reason to go and finally buy some and make very very good use of them! OH, the deliciousness!

        36. youre always making the best desserts! 🙂

        37. I think these bars would make me forget all my problems too…

        38. These are looking just heavenly!!
          Chocolate + cheesecake + butterfingers = Perfect dessert for me

        39. Just one decedent dish. Perfect for girls weekend.

        40. There is just too much amazingness crammed into these cheesecake bars! I haven’t had a butterfinger since high school – I went through a phase where I ate them every day for a month. Time for it to make a reappearance in my life by making this decadent recipe!

        41. Back on track? I find it difficult just keeping up with your posts! Don’t know how you do it, Liz. Amazed by your energy – must be from these amazing sweet treats. These bars make me feel guilty just looking at them, lol. Absolute beauties!

        42. I guess I’ve died and gone to dessert bar heaven… 🙂
