5 Minute Butterfinger Cheesecake


I know my postings have been very sporadic in the past few months (or more).  Our family schedule has just gotten busier than I ever expected it to be, but in a good way.  What it doesn’t leave me though is a lot of time to make things from scratch anymore like I used to. 

Luckily, there are many, many companies out there that make products to help out busy people (or non bakers/cooks).   So over the course of the summer, when I post a recipe, be prepared that it probably has at least one, if not two, convenience food products.  Companies spend lots of money creating recipes/idea for their products and put them on their packaging.  Do you ever try them? 

That’s what my intentions are for this summer.  To try a few convenience food products, their package recipes, and to tell you about them. 


First up is Philadelphia Cheesecake Filling, found in the refrigerator section near the cream cheese.  Being a cheesecake lover, I knew I wanted to try this product when I saw it.  It’s not as good as homemade cheesecake, but if you truly want a quick, easy dessert – try this.  Pair it with a prepared graham cracker or Oreo crust and you can have a dessert ready in 5 minutes – I kid you not!  Part of the reason I liked this product! 


All you need to do with this cheesecake filling is pour it into a crust and top with your favorite topping, or stir in a favorite extra and then pour into the crust.   See – fast and easy.
