But First, Who Invented Chocolate Chips?

Before we dive into a world of delicious recipes, let’s take a moment to look back at where this treat comes from.

Back in 1937, this treat was invented out of necessity and was an accidental success. Ruth Wakefield is credited with the creation after running out of baker’s chocolate for her cookies. To try to salvage the situation and avoid angry patrons, she decided to chop up a chocolate bar and mix it into the cookie dough. And the rest, as they say, is history.
