NATIONAL — Today is National Chocolate Chip Day!

In 1937, Ruth Graves Wakefield added cut-up chunks of semi-sweet Nestle chocolate bar to cookies thinking they would melt.

Instead, chocolate chip cookies were invented by accident.

Wakefield sold the recipe to Nestle in exchange for a lifetime supply of chocolate.

53% of American adults prefer chocolate chip cookies over other varieties.
