    Could I use Butrerfinger bars? Would that be similar consistency and flavor as these Cadbury Crunchie bars?

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi there – I’ve just googled Butterfinger bars! They look to be a similar texture but the flavour sounds very different (Crunchie bars are made from honeycomb and aren’t peanut butter flavoured). That being said, I think it would definitely work and make a delicious cheesecake!
