National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day
Warm chocolate chip cookies with a glass of milk are the best! This cookie, a great American treat, is the focus of National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day!
Ruth Wakefield, a Massachusetts restaurant owner in the 1930s, developed the recipe for chocolate chip cookies. The cookies were intended to be served with ice cream and were made using chocolate that had been hand-cut into small pieces.
In 1939, Wakefield sold the recipe for the cookies to Nestle. Nestle sold their chocolate bars with Wakefield‚Äôs recipe on the back. Some packages included a special cutter to help you cut the chocolate into smaller pieces.
Nestle began making chocolate chips in 1941. This was the first time that people didn’t have to make their own chocolate. Instead of chocolate chunks, the chocolate chips were made from teardrop-shaped morsels.
Although chocolate chips are traditionally semi-sweet, over time they have evolved to include other flavors such as milk chocolates, dark chocolates, and white chocolates. Butterscotch and caramel, peanut butter, cinnamon, peppermint, espresso and pink and blue “unicorn‚Äù chips.
The American tradition of chocolate chip cookies has remained strong and spread throughout the globe. There are many variations to the recipe, including adding oatmeal for extra nutrients, M&Ms for “monster cookies” or white chocolate with cranberries to create a holiday-themed variety.
In the 1980s, unbaked chocolate chip cookie batter was popular. Cookie dough started appearing in other places, including ice cream.
In 1984, chocolate chip cookie dough ice-cream was first introduced by Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Shop in Burlington. It is believed that it was an anonymous suggestion from the shop‚Äôs suggestion board.
