The sweetest day: National Chocolate Chip Day!
Tuesday marks National Chocolate Chip Day!
HONOLULU (KITV) - Tuesday marks National Chocolate Chip Day!
Chocolate chip cookies are credited to Ruth Graves Wakefield. The Massachusetts woman was a Toll House Inn employee in 1937.
One day she decided to put chopped up pieces from a Nestle chocolate bar in a cookie recipe.
The chocolate chip cookies were a hit, and Wakefield inked a deal with Nestle. She gave the company her recipe and they gave her chocolate for life.
Chocolate chips were originally semi-sweet. They now come in a variety of flavors including mint, white chocolate and bittersweet.
