Origin of chocolate chip cookie

With winter knocking at our door, what better food to comfort our soul than a glass of warm milk and chocolate chip cookies?

Chocolate candies and cookies have a wintery, Christmassy feel to them, don’t they?

But did you know the first batch of Chocolate chip cookies was created accidentally? Well, who wouldn’t love accidents if they were so delish?

Ruth Graves Wakefield is the lady to thank for your favorite chocolate chip cookies.

Read on to know more facts and origin of cookies:

In 1930, Ruth Wakefield was running the TollHouse Inn along with her husband Kenneth Wakefield in the USA. Ruth served all the meals to the guests at the Inn.

One fine day, she was baking a batch of chocolate cookies in the kitchen when she realized that she has run out of the baker’s chocolate. As a substitute, she found a bar of Nestle’ semisweet chocolate gifted to her by Andrew Nestle. She chopped the chocolate into small chunks and added them to the dough.

She expected the chunks to melt and spread as the cookies baked just as the baker’s chocolate did. Instead, the chunks remained intact to give it a moist gooey bite. Ruth Wakefield called these cookies ‘chocolate crunch cookies’. The cookies became a hit with everyone. Soon, she published the recipe in Boston and New England newspapers.

In 1936,  Ruth Wakefield went on to publish the recipe under the name of ‘Toll House Crunch cookies’.

The recipe became so popular, that it didn’t just benefit her, but it also spiked the sales of the Nestle chocolates.

As a response, Andrew Nestle, the owner of Nestle company, struck a deal with Ruth Wakefield. In exchange for her recipe to be printed on the chocolate bars, he offered her a lifetime supply of his candy bars.

To my surprise, the recipe is printed on every packet of Nestle’s Chocolate chip cookies till date in North America!

Even after the death of Ruth Wakefield in 1977, her legendary recipe lives on.
