Peanut Butter Butterfinger Cheesecake Bars

Peanut butter, butterfingers, and cheesecake are all on my list of favorites so when I saw these cheesecake bars, I knew had to make them. I've made these a few times before but wasn't able to get any good photos before they were all gone! 
I'm always looking for a good excuse to bake, so when my good friend Brittiany asked me to make dessert for her bf's birthday, I knew these would be a hit! The cheesecake layer was creamy and smooth with just the right amount of butterfingery goodness. The hint of peanut butter from the crust lingers in your mouth and is sooo good!
