National Chocolate Chip Day (U.S.A) and more holidays on May 15!

National Chocolate Chip Day

The chocolate chip cookie is a happy accident born out of a baker’s shortage of baker’s chocolate in the 1930s. Using semi-sweet chocolate instead, the baker created a new type of cookie that quickly became a favorite. The first chocolate chips were not created until 1940 by Nestlé, as a response to the cookie’s popularity. Chocolate chips, or “morsels,” were sold with a chopping tool for easy chunking. Today, the chocolate chip cookie is an American classic with mass appeal. Celebrate this beloved treat on National Chocolate Chip Day, held annually on May 15th.

On National Chocolate Chip Day, indulge in freshly baked chocolate chip cookies or visit your favorite bakery for a sweet treat. Don’t forget to share some cookies with your friends and family and spread your love for this delicious American classic.
