CLEVELAND, Oh -- Country chef Lee Ann Miller always tests the recipes she shares on Fox 8 News in the Morning with her family before she shares them with us. According to Lee Ann, her sons could not get enough of this Butterfinger Dessert.

Butterfinger Dessert


5 Butterfinger bars, crushed
1-3/4 graham cracker crumbs
1-3/4 saltine cracker crumbs
¾ c. butter, melted


1-3/4 c. instant pudding (half butterscotch, half vanilla)
3 c. milk
6 c. ice cream, softened


8 oz. whipped topping
1 Butterfinger candy bar or Hershey Chocolate bar, chopped
For the crumbs mix together bars, graham and saltine crumbs. Then drizzle melted butter over crumb mixture and press half the mixture in pan. I like using a pan that is a little larger than a 13x9. For the filling mix together pudding mix and milk. One scoop at a time, add the ice cream and beat with electric mixer until smooth. Pour over crumbs in the pan and top with remaining crumbs. Top with 8 oz. whipped topping and then garnish with 1 chopped Butterfinger candy bar. Chill for an hour or more.
