Chocolate Chip Brownie
The origin of chocolate chip brownies is often attributed to Ruth Wakefield, who owned the Toll House Inn in Whitman, Massachusetts in the 1930s. According to the story, Wakefield was making a batch of chocolate cookies and, running out of baker's chocolate, substituted broken pieces of Nestle chocolate instead. The chocolate did not melt and distribute evenly throughout the dough, but instead retained its shape and created small pockets of chocolate within the cookies. The chocolate chip cookie was born, and quickly became popular.
It is said that soon after, someone added this chocolate chip cookie dough to a brownie recipe, creating the chocolate chip brownie, a delicious combination of two popular desserts.
This story is not well-documented, but it is widely accepted as the origin of chocolate chip brownies. Nestle Company also claims that Ruth Wakefield invented the chocolate chip brownie recipe in the late 1930s.
Since then, chocolate chip brownies have become a popular and beloved dessert, enjoyed by people all over the world. There are many variations of the recipe, including different types of chocolate and add-ins like nuts or fruit.
