If you are a Butterfinger candy bar lover then you will love this dessert! make certian that the frozen yogurt is softened just enough to mix in but not completely melted, plan ahead this needs to chill for 5 or more hours before serving :)

- 1 cup crushed graham cracker crumbs

- In a large bowl combine crushed Ritz crackers, graham cracker crumbs, crushed Butterfinger bars and melted butter; set aside about 1/2 cup for the topping.

- Spread over the crust.
- Spread with the remaining thawed Cool Whip topping, then sprinkle with reserved 1/2 cup crumb mixture.

This tastes wonderful, very _Butterfingery_ and was easy to assemble. I made just as written, using cheesecake pudding mix as I didn't find any straight _cream cheese_ flavor. Mine was rather tricky to serve - it set up well but melted *rapidly* once removed from the fridge - not an ideal potluck dish as was my intent. The crust softened considerably during the chill time, also. I'm wondering if it should be frozen, with the whipped cream topping and crunchy topping added just before serving? Just my thoughts; thanks for sharing your recipe!
