MAY 15th | TODAY IS:
NATIONAL CHOCOLATE CHIP DAY – Today we celebrate chocolate chips and all the wonderful things they can do.
Chocolate chips can make a plain muffin sublime a cookie stupendous. Melted in a double boiler, they can coat peanuts, chow main noodles and coconut for fabulous desserts.
Honestly, my favourite way to eat chocolate chips is straight from the bag. Years ago, I owned a Cookie Mix business. I would fill 750 mL mason jars with eight different recipes of cookie mixes. All but one recipe contained chocolate chips.
I would buy cases chocolate chips by the kilogram and I think I ate those delicious little morsel of yumminess by the kilogram. It was so easy to grab a measuring cup and dip into the box. I did, however, get sick of making cookies and eating chocolate chips.
Luckily, I am proud to say, after I sold the business, my love affair with chocolate chips rekindled. Christmastime baking sees my greatest use of chocolate chips but I think it’s time to buy a bag. Just to eat. Yum.
