The History

In 1938, Ruth Wakefield decided to improvise and sprinkle fresh cookies with chocolate chips, inadvertently creating a new dish. They have been sold since 1940. Semi-sweet chocolate was used in the original version. It reached its peak popularity in the 60s. Now it is also available in sweet mixtures of dark and white chocolate.

Fun Facts

Chocolate chip cookies are recognized as the official dessert of Massachusetts. This significant event first took place in 1997.

  1. Since the recipe allows for creating real culinary art pieces from cookies, it deserves the attention and the delight of gourmets.
