Cookies, granola bars and pancakes are just a few of the foods that taste delicious with chocolate chips added in, so now get your cookbooks out and be ready as May 15 celebrates National Chocolate Chip Day.
It is hard to imagine where we would be without the invention of chocolate chips. Would cookies be the same?
A small chopping tool was initially included with the Nestle chocolate bars however in 1941, they, and other competitors, started selling the chocolate in chip or morsel form.
Semi-sweet was the original flavor of chocolate chips. Today the flavors come in bittersweet, semi-sweet, mint, white chocolate, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and white and dark swirled. During the holidays you can often find seasonal colors!
There are recipes, of all kinds, available that include chocolate chips, some of which are recipes for cakes, breads, bars, pies, cookies, muffins, frosting, pancakes, waffles, trail mix, ice cream and so much more.
Grab a cookie before Cookie Monster gets them all!!! I grabbed mine already today!!!
