In 1938, Ruth Grays Wakefield, accidentally invented the Chocolate Chip Cookie when she ran out of baker's chocolate. In place of baker’s chocolate, she used Nestle's Chocolate Chips, however the chocolate chips did not melt. From then on, the most famous American cookie was born. After acquiring Wakefield’s recipe, originally referred to as “Butterdrop Do Cookies,” Nestle paid her with a lifetime supply of chocolate from Nestle. Enjoy!
Fun Fact: The chocolate chip cookie is America’s favorite cookie. Fifty-three percent of American adults prefer chocolate chip cookies over peanut butter cookies (16 percent), oatmeal cookies (15 percent), and any other variety. No wonder there are 7 billon chocolate chip cookies eaten in the U.S. every year, with about 50% being homemade cookies.
