Thank goodness for Ruth Graves Wakefield! Back in the 1930's she created the original chocolate chip cookie at her Toll House Inn in Whitman, Massachusetts.
Legend has it that she was intending to bake standard chocolate cookies for her guests, but when she ran out of baker's chocolate - she swapped some broken-up pieces of semi-sweet chocolate bark into the mixture and was delighted to find out they didn't melt into the dough!
Today, chocolate chips can be found in all types of food - everything from pancakes, to bagels, ice cream, martini's and more! To enter, TELL US in the comments below:
