Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Chocolate Chip Day

National Chocolate Chip celebrates one of the most popular ingredients in cooking - the chocolate chip. 

The origin of chocolate chips was said to be in the 1930s and was invented by a person called Ruth Graves in Wakefield. In her cookbook titled, Ruth Wakefield’s Toll House, Tried and True Recipes, she published a recipe of the name "Toll House Chocolate Crunch Cookies". It was said she accidentally discovered chocolate chips when she added chocolate to dough expecting them to melt and lose their shape, but ended up with drops of chocolate, giving her cookies a delicious texture switch between the cookie and the chocolate.

And although the cookie is a natural place to find chocolate chips, their use in other desserts is rarely a bad move.
