The word “lush” tends to make us think of a giant bed covered in down pillows, and we have to guess that’s where this divine dessert got its name. This Butterfinger-studded creation is exactly that: four layers that you just want to sink into.
Like that perfect bed fit for a queen, this sweet treat also has layers that get lighter towards the top. A crushed Oreo cookie crust starts off the goodness with a dense, chocolaty bang, followed by a seriously sweet and decadent serving of peanut butter cheesecake that’s studded with pieces of Butterfinger candy.

But then, just when you thought you could only handle two bites of this over-the-top temptation, the next layer lightens things up with a smooth chocolate pudding. A fluffy cloud of Cool Whip is the final tier, and it gives the dish just enough of an airy touch that you can dive into--and appreciate--a full slice without feeling stuffed.
Even better: unlike labor-intensive cakes, this layered dessert is as easy as mix and pour. A little time in the fridge allows the whole thing to set and the flavors to meld together. Just make sure to sprinkle more crushed Butterfingers over the top before serving. Take it from us: it’s a necessary final flourish!
