Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies
Who doesn’t love chocolate chips? Bite size Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies are the way to go, 3 bites and they are gone. Kids will love it because they can have one for each hand. Mini chocolate chips are perfect in these cookies. I used a small scoop to make these or a large tablespoon of the dough will work too. When baked these cookies are about 1 1/2 inches across in diameter.
We have Ruth Wakefield to thank for chocolate chip cookies. She invented them in the 1930’s. She owned an Inn with her husband called the Toll House Inn. She was baking some chocolate cookies for her guests when she discovered she was out of baker’s chocolate. She chopped up some semi-sweet chocolate instead thinking they would melt, instead the chocolate chip cookie was born. The recipe was soon printed in a Boston newspaper and Nestle’s saw it’s chocolate sales increase. Nestle’s then made a deal with Ruth Wakefield that she would get a lifetime supply of chocolate and they would print the cookie recipe on their package. When Nestle’s first started marketing the chocolate chip cookies they packaged a chopper to go with the chocolate. It was around 1939 when Nestle’s started selling what we know as chocolate chips. If anyone still has one of these choppers I would love to see a picture of one.
