Chocolate chunk cookie story
It was over half a century ago…
...at a little country Inn, in New England, that a clever cook first combined hand-cut chunks of chocolate with plain cookie dough intending to create an easy, all-chocolate cookie.
But the stubborn, rough-cut pieces of chocolate didn’t melt throughout the dough as she had hoped. Instead, her experiment yielded a new taste discovery that was the beginning of this country’s most-loved, cookie-jar classic: a fragrant, vanilla cookie, chock-full of melt-in-your-mouth chunks of rich, real chocolate!
Warm and chewy, fresh from the oven, the cookies created a sensation.
Soon, nearly everyone was trying to recreate the exciting chunky cookie recipe! But chopping hard block-chocolate was time-consuming work. Before long, enterprising manufacturers were producing commercial chocolate drops, or “chips”, that helped enhance the popularity of the cookie.
Today, the chocolate chip cookie is America’s favorite, by far, with 7 billion eaten annually, and over half the cookies baked in the home contain the ubiquitous chocolate chip.
With SACO’s real semisweet Chocolate CHUNKS, you can once again bake the cookie that started it all—without the effort and expense of chopping up blocks of chocolate!
Delectable, fresh and fragrant, Chocolate CHUNK cookies, bars, and brownies are certain to please the chocolate lovers you know—and homemade treats always seem to have a little fun mixed in, too. We think the clever country cook who created the first inviting batch of chocolate-packed cookies would stirringly agree.
