Did you know:

The tear drop shaped chips were invented in 1937 in Whitman, Massachusetts, when the owner of the Toll House Inn, Ruth Graves Wakefield, was making Butter Drop Do Cookies added cut-up chunks of a semi-sweet Nestle chocolate bar to a cookie recipe when she realized she had no Baker’s chocolate.

When a Boston newspaper printed her Original Toll House Cookie recipe, her local celebrity grew, which led to an agreement with Nestle in1939. She allowed Nestle to add her recipe to the chocolate bar’s packaging in exchange for a lifetime supply of their chocolate.

Recipes that all use chocolate chips are gathered here.

Let’s start with an 11th Century frugal dish that has evolved into a trendy dessert.
