Happy National Chocolate Chip Day!
When: Always on May 15th
National Chocolate Chip Day celebrates and enjoys sweet, tasty chocolate chips. Chocolate chips are a great invention, and certainly deserve a little recognition. After all, where would chocolate chip cookies, cakes and muffins be without the chocolate chip!?
Chocolate chips are popular in cooking and baking, for a wide variety of breads, cakes, and cookies. There is an almost endless number of recipes. They are also used in decorating. Have you ever had chocolate chip pancakes? How about chocolate chips in trail mix? If you've never had these, then you're leading a sheltered life.
This is referred to as a "National" day. However, we did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day. It seems that many of the food and candy related days have tagged on the word "national". We suspect in the midst of a sugar high, the creators got a little excited, and a wee bit carried away.
