History of Chocolate Chip Cookies
Would you believe that this scrumptious treat was created by accident? It’s true!
In the 1930s, Ruth Wakefield, the owner of the Toll House Inn in Whitman, Massachusetts, was baking cookies when she realized she’s out of baker’s chocolate. As an alternative, she added tiny bits of a chocolate bar into her cookie batter, thinking that the bits would melt. However, the pieces only softened, and thus, the chocolate chip cookie was born!
Word about Wakefield’s humble creation quickly spread around town. She finally got her big break when her recipe was featured in an episode of The Betty Crocker Cooking School of the Air radio program. Due to the massive popularity of Ruth’s Chocolate Crunch Cookie, Nestle reached out to Wakefield to offer her a deal: Her recipe would be included in their wrapper in exchange for a free lifetime supply of cookies. She said, “yes,” and the rest is history.
