I cannot believe Summer is coming to an end. The last few months flew by and Halloween will be here before we know it. Did you know that Halloween is one of my favorite holidays? Maybe because I love to dress up or it might also be because I love CANDY! Did you have a favorite candy growing up? Or is there one candy you always sneak from your child’s Halloween bucket? My favorite candy bar by far is Butterfinger. I love the crispety, crunchety peanut butter flavor. Today I am sharing a fun and easy dessert that you can make in under 20 minutes! These No Bake Butterfinger Cheesecake cups are such a hit in my house they never last long!
You can purchase Butterfinger Fun Size bars at your local CVS and get a coupon here to save $.75 on one Butterfinger® Fun Size or Mini Bag (10 oz. or larger)! I think they are just the perfect size!
For this easy No Bake Butterfinger Cheesecake Cup recipe I am using the Butterfinger Fun Size bars.
I love the individual servings in small mason jars! They are perfect for entertaining and just make these desserts look so much cuter! Mason Jars are also a great idea because you can easily put a lid on them and store them in the refrigerator for an easy summer treat.
