Celebrate a sweet treat with National Chocolate Chip Day

Grab a glass of milk and celebrate in style with your all-time favorite chocolate chip cookie.

Wednesday is National Chocolate Chip Day.

Eighty-two years ago, Ruth Graves Wakefield of Whitman, Massachusetts chopped up chunks of semi-sweet Nestle chocolate bars and added the morsels to her cookie recipie.

The cookies were a huge success and she signed an agreement with the chocolate company.

Today, chocolate chips come in a variety of flavors including, bittersweet, semi-sweet, mint, white chocolate, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and white and dark swirled.
