History of Chocolate Chip Day
It all started at a little place called the Toll House Inn in Massachusetts. Legend has it that Ruth Graves Wakefield had originally planned on making a chocolate cookie but opted to throw in a chunk of a chocolate bar along with it. The happy accident turned out the chocolate not to melt and mix with the rest of the cookie. It maintained its shape, filling the cookie with delicious little chocolate bites.
All About Chocolate Chips
What’s not to love about chocolate, right? Chocolate Chip Day is not always about chocolate chip cookies, but to indulge in all things sweet that you can include chocolate chips! Put them in pancakes, muffins, pudding, cake, ice cream, granola bars pieces, milkshakes, and so much more. Or, our personal favorite way to enjoy the day is with a handful of chocolate chips right out of the bag.
Mix It Up
Let’s first get down to basics. There is something utterly fascinating and fun about mixing together all the ingredients and then see them rise into yummy things in the oven. Start any batter off with a good set of mixing bowls. There are a variety of sizes available for all your baking adventures. Also, baking is an art. Too much of an ingredient or too little can have disastrous results with your baked goods. For this, you will also need measuring cups to ensure the right amount goes into each of your recipes.
If you’re a true chocolate lover, you will start with chocolate chip cookies. Although this crazy recipe was by accident a long time ago, it stands as the best mistake ever committed. For any cookie-making affair, you will need easy-to-use baking pans and sheets. Pick nonstick sheets or go for aluminum pans as they heat up quickly and bakes evenly. Or start off the day with a healthy banana chocolate chip muffin. Start with sturdy muffin trays and later gorge on those muffins. You could also go for chocolate chip cakes with our range of decorative cake pans.
Insider tip: If you’re someone where just one cookie is not enough. Try skillet cookie! Instead of using sheets, use a skillet. Although, be sure the cookie is baked evenly and is perfect if you’re looking for just one big dessert.
