Always celebrated on May 15th
National Chocolate Chip Day celebrates tasty chocolate chips. Aren’t they a great invention? How would we bake without them?
And, let’s be honest, if there’s any leftover chocolate chips left in the bag, don’t you or your kids end up eating them?
No blog post about chocolate chips is complete without a recipe, and this is one we all know and love, the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe on the back of that infamous bag. Enjoy!
