Chocolate chip recipes have been around for quite some time and Ruth Graves Wakefield was the woman to come up with the first and best chocolate chip cookie recipe that we all know and love. Ruth was one of the owners of the Toll House Inn Restaurant and she would always like to make treats for the guests. One time she was trying to make chocolate cookies but she didn't have any cocoa powder so she chopped up a bunch of chocolate into pieces and added it to the batter thinking it would melt while the cookies baked. When the cookies came out she realized that somehow, the chocolate stayed in tact. This was because the makers of Hershey's chocolate bars put a coating on the chocolate so it doesn't melt as fast. But she tried the cookies and everyone loved them, and we still love them. Thank you to Christy for this awesome chocolate chip pizza recipe.
