Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake

 

Here's a recipe post i've been itching to share with you guys! Enjoy!!!

I had a bunch of chocolate chip cookie dough truffles that hadn't been coated in chocolate yet and I didn't want it to go to waste. I also wanted to give it a different flavor profile. Something that wasn't just sweet on sweet. I thought of incorporating it in a cheesecake. Not saying that I was the first person to think of this combination, it's definitely been done before but I loved the thought of it being uncommon.

I knew I had to do it because I couldn't stop thinking about it. That's usually how I go about posting recipes and articles here. If the undying urge to make it is there, then I feel it's totally blog-worthy.
