Tomorrow is National Chocolate Chip Day!

Let's all celebrate this wonderful treat with the humble beginning.

Where did chocolate chips originate? Since tomorrow is National Chocolate Chip Day, I thought I would share with you the history of the amazing sensation known as the chocolate morsel. 

In 1930, Mr. and Mrs. Wakefield purchased a toll house in Massachusetts. Mrs. Wakefield loved to bake, and decided one day to experiment with her Butter Drop Do cookie. She cut a Nestle bar into tiny pieces and added them to her cookie dough. She expected the chocolate to melt, but instead, the chips kept their shape and added a delicate soft creamy texture.

She named her creation the Toll House cookie and it quickly became a widespread favorite, which lead to her giving Nestle permission to put the recipe right on the wrapper of the Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar. Before the morsels, Nestle made scored chocolate bars that could easily be broken into small pieces.

I can eat Toll House morsels any time of the day. I often gobble a handful just before bed. Wow, the dreams it gives me. George Clooney and I were boyfriend and girlfriend for about ten minutes one night. 

Be sure to check out my and please share with your favorite cookie recipe with us.
