May 15th is National Chocolate Chip Day

As if you needed another reason to bake a batch of chocolate chip cookies, here comes National Chocolate Chip Day on May 15th!

Chocolate Chip Origins

Chocolate chips were created in 1937 by Ruth Graves Wakefield when she chopped up some chocolate and baked the pieces in a batch of cookies.  The cookies became extremely popular, and in 1939 Nestle began producing Toll House Chocolate Chips.

Chocolate Chip Celebrations

I will be celebrating National Chocolate Chip Day by baking several batches of chocolate chip cookies.  I won't be hoarding all of the cookies I bake though.  I plan to make enough so we can spread the joy of this wonderful day to our neighbors and friends.

I've listed a few of the ways we celebrate National Chocolate Chip Day below.  Choose one for your family this year or brainstorm a new way to enjoy the classic American chocolate chip cookie.

1.  Divide your chocolate chip cookies into individual portions, such as two cookies.  Place them in a ziploc bag with a card that says Celebrate National Chocolate Chip Day!  Enjoy! You can then hand these bags of treats out at work, school and to your neighbors.

2.  Have a chocolate chip cookie parade!  My kids each made 2 huge chocolate chip cookies from posterboard.  I connected them with string, and they wore their chocolate chip cookie costumes as they marched around the neighborhood giving out the real cookies they helped make.

3.  Celebrate quietly by just having chocolate chip cookies as a snack or for dessert.  Talk about how your family enjoys chocolate chip cookies or how you enjoyed them when you were a kid.

4.  Invite family and friends over for a milk and cookies party.  You can provide the cookies and milk or you could just have each family that attends bring a batch of their very own chocolate chip cookies.

5.  Enjoy a handful of chocolate chips and  glass of red wine.  They are both full of healthy antioxidants so you will be taking care of your body while celebrating National Chocolate Chip Day.

Have a Happy National Chocolate Chip Day!
