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. Rare is the leftover chocolate chip. If you don't use the whole bag, you and/or your kids will likely eat them as a snack before they make it to the storage container.  There are many recipes for having a successful National Chocolate Chip Day. And, every one of them includes chocolate chips. 
Origin of National Chocolate Chip Day:
Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day. 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.
