I combined several recipes for Butterfinger pie and peanut butter pie and then added my own special touches. The result was an absolutely perfect pie! Warning: it is extremely rich but addicting. Even those who proclaim it to be too rich keep going back for "just one more bite!"

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Attention all Butterfinger fans, this pie will be your go-to dessert! It's very simple to make and packs a punch of peanut-buttery flavor. Each creamy bite is filled with bits of crunchy Butterfinger goodness. The cream cheese adds a little tanginess. We chose an Oreo crust and it paired well with the chocolate of the candy bar. This is crazy good!
