A treat that needs absolutely no introduction, the chocolate chip cookie is arguably America’s favorite dessert, although some might call it a snack, a meal, or even medicine of the soul, because let’s face it, no treat puts a smile on someone’s face possibly as much as a cookie does. This American classic is a true crowd pleaser.
The chocolate chip cookie was created in the late 1930s by restaurant owner and baker, Ruth Wakefield. Over the years, many speculations on how it was created have developed, but one thing is certain, the chocolate chip cookie is a true legend.
Taking on many shapes and forms throughout the years, the classic chocolate chip cookie is a round-shaped, sweet dough paired with morsels or chunks of chocolate. Originally meant to be paired with ice cream, it is best served warm with crispy edges and a soft center that almost melts in your mouth. Hungry for one yet?
What’s better than one dessert? Well, two, of course! As demonstrated by the Cronut or Brookie, creating a hybrid (which combines two different desserts into one) is a fun way to give any classic a twist. Incorporating different textures, like gooey and crunchy, is a surefire way to attract even your most conventional customer.
Offering better-for-you options when it comes to chocolate chip cookies has never been easier. Simply reduce their size while maintaining their texture or add sugar-reduced chips to improve their nutritional label. Making small changes such as these can help you turn any dessert into a better-for-you one.
