United States - Original NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Chocolate Chip Cookies

The NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Chocolate chip cookies all started in the United State in Massachusetts where Ruth Wakefield, who ran the Toll House Inn with her husband in the 1930’s, cut up NESTLÉ Semi-sweet chocolate bars and added them to her cookies. The chocolate bars didn’t melt, they softened, and this is now the history of the chocolate chip cookie! Chocolate chip cookies are delicious and perfect for every occasion. Try this classic cookie with more than 75 years of history.
