Butterfinger Cheesecake Bites


All I have to say about these...LITTLE BITES OF HEAVEN!!! (and I found the recipe on Favorite Family Recipes and doubled it, thank goodness!)

Ingredients:
1 c. ground Vanilla Wafers
2 Tbsp. granulated sugar
2 Tbsp. butter
1/8 tsp salt
8 oz softened cream cheese
1/4 c. creamy peanut butter
1/2 c. sugar
1 egg
5 Tbsp. heavy cream, divided
1/8 tsp salt
6 Fun Size Butterfinger Candy Bars, crushed
1 c. semi sweet chocolate chips (I used milk chocolate)

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place cookie crumbs, sugar, butter and salt into a bowl; mix to combine. Spoon mixture into bottoms of mini cheesecake pan or mini cupcake pan and press. Bake for 10 minutes and remove from oven.
Reduce heat to 300 degrees. In a stand or electric mixer, beat cream cheese and peanut butter until smooth. Beat sugar, egg, cream and salt until well combined. Slowly stir in crushed Butterfinger. Evenly pour batter over baked crust. Bake for 20-22 minutes or until cheesecake is set. Let cool for 2 hours, then remove from pan.
Melt chocolate chips in microwave in 30 second intervals until smooth. Stir in cream until smooth and glossy. If needed, return back to microwave for 15 seconds or so until smooth. Spoon over tops of cakes then sprinkle crushed butterfinger over top.
