Today is National Chocolate Chip Day! Chocolate chips are an
essential ingredient in dozens of delicious baked goods—chocolate chip
cookies, chocolate chip pancakes, chocolate chip muffins, chocolate chip
brownies, chocolate chip bagels, and many more. You can even find chili
recipes that call for these sweet morsels!
In the 1930s, Ruth Graves Wakefield created the original chocolate
chip cookie at her Toll House Inn in Whitman, Massachusetts. Ruth
intended to bake chocolate cookies for her guests, but she ran out of
baker’s chocolate. She substituted with chopped up semi-sweet chocolate
morsels and discovered that the pieces did not melt into the dough as
she expected. Her cookies were an instant hit. Today, 25% of all the
cookies baked in the United States are chocolate chip!
To celebrate National Chocolate Chip Day, pick up a bag of chocolate
chips at the supermarket and bake something yummy to share with friends
YAY...why not?! Love chocolate
