Chocolate chip cookie dough truffles cheesecake is one of those desserts that makes the problems of the world just melt away. Well, most of the time. You’ll see what I mean.

Last year on a cold winter’s night while we were snuggled in bed, the house was broken into. I have tried to find a way to blog this out so that you will understand that while it was a terrifying event, we all had a good laugh about it at the end of the day.

It was 4 in the morning, our cars were parked in the driveway and the doors were all locked. There was snow on the ground and a dumb kid breaking into sheds stealing what he could carry to what was probably another car carrying the goods.

What possessed this person to break into our house, I’ll never know. First of all, we are young, and Handsome owns his house, thus there is nothing worth stealing. Secondly, who breaks into houses with cars parked out front? And who breaks into a house if all you can see from the back window is a dog bowl 10 inches wide that sits a foot off the ground?

To top it off, I’m a very light sleeper. So the moment the door was popped open, I was up, and the dog was out the door after the culprit with Handsome right after him.

Remember, it’s 4 am. Shock, snow, and PJs.

And here’s where it all goes just plain humorous (well, if that can be said for a situation like this).

“Hey!”, my BF yells out after the guy.

The ass clown stops in the neighbors yard, ducks down and replies, “What?”

Mind you, only seconds have passed and the world is spinning, but I am fully awake by now and amazed that anyone is this stupid.

Freezing and in a state of shock, the BF yells again.

“Who are you?” No response so he tries again, “Are you my neighbor?”

Yep, just borrowing a cup of sugar.

“No, I’m your neighbor’s friend.”

At this point all I can think is that if my cats got out into the dark and cold, I will kill this idiot. The BF dials 911 and in a matter of seconds there are cops patrolling the street with spot lights.
Nothing came of it and the person wasn’t caught, but in hindsight it’s a great story – minus the whole house being broken into part.

Marble was awesome and totally saved the day (We all know we’ve said our pet would lick a stranger to death before being mean – and yet).

If he had taken off in another direction in the backyard he would have fallen into a hole BF dug a while back for a project that he hasn’t finished yet. #fail

And nothing will ever top the conversation that took place. Nothing.

Later that day, Handsome’s truck got backed into in a parking lot. I can’t remember it now, but I’m pretty sure there was a third crappy thing for the day, too.
Read this again and laugh. I promise that’s what I did.

For an event like that, you need some chocolate chip cookie dough truffles cheesecake.

Peabody’s Really Bad Day Fix-it-All Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles Cheesecake

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles Cheesecake \\ Recipe on PassTheSushi.comFrom Culinary Concoctions by Peabody


For the cookie crust:

  • 1 ¼ cups chocolate chip cookie crumbs (about 16 Chip’s Ahoy Chunky in my case)
  • 2 TBSP sugar
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, melted

For the cheese cake filling:

  • 32 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar, loosely packed
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 TBSP all-purpose flour, plus some for dusting the truffles
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • approximately 20 cookie dough truffles, plus 5-8 to place on top


Start by making the chocolate chip cookie dough truffle recipe, below.
Combine the cookie crumbs, 2 TBSP sugar and melted butter. Press this into the bottom of a 10 inch spring form pan. Bake crust for 10 minutes at 350F and set aside. When cooled enough to handle, wrap the outside of the pan in aluminum foil to seal for the water bath later.

Mix the cheese and sugars with paddle attachment on medium speed, about 3 minutes. Add in the flour on low speed. Add eggs one at a time, scraping down the sides and bottom after each egg. Add the egg yolks and vanilla and beat until completely incorporated.

Place truffles into a large bowl sprinkle with flour and light coat each one with flour (this helps them not all sink to the bottom). Remove and excess flour and fold into cheesecake, reserving a couple to place on the top.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Place the last few truffles on top of the cheesecake.

Bake in a water batch at 350F for approximately 1 ½ hours. A knife inserted should come out clean when the cake is done.

Chill the cake overnight and then remove from the pan.

  4. Christina says:

    OMG! I can’t believe the dumba$$ stopped and yelled back “what?” That is a great story, but I’m sorry you had to live it! Your cheesecake would make any bad situation better!

  5. Hysterical story! Yes, after a day like that there would be a crazy need for cheesecake. Thanks for the double recipes – I don’t have a good one for the cookie dough truffles.

  8. Ok, I’ve had enough of this! You need to just move in to my spare bedroom. These pictures are torture, and if you were living at my house I’d be eating this right now. Please move in me!!

  9. In college the house I was living in with a bunch of friends got broken into. The story isn’t quite as good as yours, but the gall of the hobo who stole my friend’s purse and camera was astounding. We were having a Thanksgiving party with probably 10 people, there were 4 or 5 cars parked in our backyard, and all the lights were on. We’d left the backdoor open to vent some heat, and the hobo walked right in and picked up my friend’s stuff. Like Mr. Handsome, all I got out was a loud “HEY!” before sliding down the hall in my socks and watching the thief get away.

    Bad news, hobo didn’t get caught by the police, good news my friend magically still got her stuff back. Anyhoo, pretty cheesecake! 😀

  10. Wow, I just can’t believe people sometimes… but I’m very glad the situation is one you can laugh about! Now pass over that cheesecake!! 🙂

  11. Seriously, this guy belongs in “Stupid people turning to a life of crime”. I wish he had been caught. This cheesecake looks amazing. I can never seem to get mine nice and golden on top like your one.

  12. Hahaha…who yells back at the person of the house you have just broken into?! I am sure it was terrifying at the time, but hilarious now! 🙂 This cheesecake and truffles look incredible! Cheesecake is my all time favorite dessert…love it! 🙂

  13. fooddreamer says:

    Okay, for all that it’s scary to have someone break into your house, that is a pretty funny story! What a numbnuts! Great cheesecake, though.

  14. Oh dear oh dear oh dear. Two of my favorite cakes are cheesecake and dairy queen ice cream cake. Now, for the DQ cake you can get it chocolate chip cookie dough style… and I do. Now, it only makes sense that for my other favorite cake to do the same. I love it, I love it, I love it, I LOVE IT!

  15. Lora @cakeduchess says:

    That story was funny…what a moron! This cheesecake…oh my word! It looks just amazing and I wish I had a slice with my coffee right now!!

  18. Sorry but I had to ROFL that really was funny, and seriously who brakes into someones house and than has a conversation with them ??? LOL
    And now onto the yummy cake that you posted. That looks divine! Two of my favorite things put together, nothing’s better than that 😀 Love it!

  19. Oh my God … LOL!!! I am laughing and drooling over your cheesecake at the same time! “Yep, just borrowing a cup of sugar.” HAHAHAHA Scary/Funny experience 🙂

  20. I’m so glad you can laugh about this experience….and let us laugh, too! Now, let’s get to the cheesecake…WOW! Two of my favorites rolled into one…how wonderful!

  21. This cheesecake looks like it would cure the worst of days!
