Chocolate Chip Cookie Day – August 4
Make your favorite chocolate chip cookies and add some extra chocolate chips into the mix!
This is a day to enjoy those tasty bits of chocolate in your favorite cookies. For the same reason we thank Ruth Graves Wakefield for chocolate chips, we also celebrate her name on National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day.
For if it weren’t for her curiosity and invention, we wouldn’t hover around ovens savoring the moment the timer dings. If she had never wondered what chunks of chocolate would taste like mixed into a sugar cookie dough, we would know the ecstasy that is a warm chocolate chip cookie melting on our tongue, our eyes closing in heavenly satisfaction and perfect smiles crowning our faces. No, if it weren’t for Ruth Graves Wakefield, entire generations would have been denied the bliss that is a chocolate chip cookie.
