  • 2 eggs

Method

Step 1

The Crust:

Add melted butter and sugar to the crushed Teddy Graham's ; stir until combined.

Step 3

Add a couple of TBSP of the crust to each of the cupcake liners; press down a bit with the back of a spoon.

Step 4

The Baked Cheesecake Portion:

Step 5

Blend 2 pkg cream cheese with 1/2 cup sugar.

Step 6

Add eggs , vanilla and sour cream and beat well.

Step 7

In a microwave-safe bowl, place the white chocolate chips and the shortening together. Heat at 30 second intervals until melted.

Step 8

Add the melted chocolate to the cheesecake mixture along with the 1 cup of crushed Butterfingers; combine well.

Step 9

Equally divide between the 24 baking cups and bake on 350 degrees for 18-22 minutes. Let cool 15 minutes.

Step 10

Butterfinger Mousse:

Step 11

With your mixer, beat 8 oz cream cheese until creamy.

Step 14

You can spread it on the baked cheesecakes or use a tip and piping bag to make it pretty!

Step 15

Press a Butterfinger Bite into the center of each one and then sprinkle a bit more of crushed Butterfingers on for good measure!
