  • The chocolate chip cookie was created by an accident.  The classic cookie was born when Ruth Wakefield, owner of the Toll House Inn in Whitman, Massachusetts, added broken chocolate bar pieces into her cookie batter thinking that they would melt.  They didn’t and the result is being enjoyed by the world over.
  • Chocolate Chip Cookies were originally named “Butterdrop Do Cookies and renamed in 1936.
