National Chocolate Chip Day

Today is an extra sweet day, as it is National Chocolate Chip Day.

Chocolate chips have been around since 1937, and we have Ruth Graves Wakefield to thank for them.

She came up with the idea when she broke pieces of a chocolate bar into small chunks to put into her cookie recipe.

By 1941, Nestle was making premade chocolate chips. Since then, we have put chocolate chips in all kids of other recipes.

You can celebrate by having a tasty chocolate chip treat of your own.
