→ The Accidental History of Chocolate Chip Cookies

But while seemingly straightforward, the recipe turns out to be anything but — historically speaking, that is. After all, why would someone ever think to put chunks of semi-sweet chocolate into cookie dough? In retrospect, it makes sense — delicious sense — but who knew? As it turns out, before 1930, no one. The creation of these gooey masterpieces was an accident — the true story of which is still in debate.

Now you know, and knowing is half the battle. Also, I’m hungry for chocolate chip cookies.
