Chopped Butterfingers

1️⃣ Crust Preparation: Combine Oreo crumbs with melted butter, press into the bottom of the pan, and bake at 325°F for 10 minutes. Set up for a water bath to use later.
2️⃣ Filling: In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar, and flour until smooth. Blend in sour cream, peanut butter, and vanilla. Add eggs one at a time, mixing just until incorporated. Fold in chopped Butterfingers. Pour the filling over the crust and place the pan in a water bath. Bake at 300°F for 1 hour and 25 minutes.
3️⃣ Ganache: Heat the heavy cream until hot but not boiling. Pour over chocolate chips and let sit for a few minutes, then stir until smooth. Spread the ganache over the cooled cheesecake.
4️⃣ Whipped Cream: Whip the heavy cream, powdered sugar, peanut butter, and vanilla until stiff peaks form. Decorate the top of the cheesecake with the whipped cream and sprinkle additional chopped Butterfingers for garnish.
5️⃣ Chill: Allow the cheesecake to chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight before serving.
