I made this recipe as a little girl-- well, probably about 12 years old- and it was just a recipe my mom gave me. I didn't keep it, and have been searching for it for about three years now! I am so happy to finally have found it!! I can't wait to make this and see if it's as good as I remember!

Waaay too sweet

I could only take one bite of this one. The butterscotch and white chocolate was extremely sweet. It just tasted like the chips, not cheesecake.
