Go ahead and indulge your sweet tooth... it's National Chocolate Chip Day!
Chocolate chip cookies are credited to Ruth Graves Wakefield.
The Massachusetts woman was a Toll House Inn employee in 1937. One day she decided to put chopped up pieces from a Nestlé chocolate bar in a cookie recipe.
The chocolate chip cookies were a hit, and Wakefield inked a deal with Nestlé.
She gave the company her recipe and they gave her chocolate for life.
Chocolate chips were originally semi-sweet. They now come in a variety of flavors including mint, white chocolate and bittersweet.
