National Chocolate Chip Day is May 15!

You didn’t expect me to let this day pass, did you? There is a day that celebrates the wonderful, able-to- satisfy a- chocolate craving- little morsel and that is one day that I have to celebrate.

Ruth Wakefield...commit her name to your memory if you are a lover of all things chocolate chips, and especially the original Toll House Cookies. If you are interested, read how necessity being the mother of invention rang true in this instance.

 

I have a confession to make (and I have a feeling that some others reading this will know what I’m talking about) and that is that hidden in my pantry is always a bag of Nestle® Toll House® Morsels.  

Sometimes they are used to make the actual cookie, and often they are used in other recipes. However, when that gotta-have-it-now chocolate craving hits, I know where the bag is.  I do my best to find the dark chocolate morsels.

So, how will you celebrate this day?

Of course, you could always make the Original Toll House Cookies!

Or, you could try these 6 Different Ways to Use Chocolate Chips but careful if you want to melt chocolate. If you get the heat too high and it scorches it, you’ll have to throw it out.

 

You could also…

Drop them in your pancake batter

Sprinkle them on top of your ice cream

Add them to muffins

Put one in each dip in a waffle

 

chocolate chips

 

There you go! I don’t know about you but I’m heading for my bag of chocolate chips!!!

Good morning,  Kathy - and there seems to be something real estate- related about  "Toll House" that practically slipped by me.  Practically but not totally.  Happy Tuesday.

Hi Kathy... what's not to like about chocolate or chocolate chips... especially the semi-sweet ones you have pictured?

I'm going to count my Toojay's "blondie" as a willing participant in today's celebration. They're loaded with Toll House chips.

Kathy, I was ahead of schedule and made them in a open house on this pass Saturday.  I have a open house on this Saturday and will make them again to give a nice smell to the house.

Hey Kathy, I love semi-sweet, too. When I was a kid, I had a miniature candy bar savings bank. The deal was every time I put in a penny, I would get a candy bar. It was supposed to be a way to force me to save money. Instead, I figured out how to get it open and ate them all. My parents should have known better.

Kathy,

I will be delighted to celebrate this one and in my humble opinion, these chips are better than Nestles

More chocolate and bittersweet.  A

I keep a supply of chocolate chips too....mine are dark chocolate, dairy free. Honestly, I can't tell the difference.

I'm not a huge fan of Toll House Chocolate Chips yet. But I've started to appreciate Hershey"s Chocolate with Almonds!
