Chip, Chip, Hooray! It’s National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day

What could be sweeter than celebrating National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day this May 15th? Not much, dare we say, because as everyone knows, chocolate chip cookies are the bomb-diggidy of all cookies.  Doesn’t matter if you bake or buy, the most important thing is to make sure you have plenty around and eat every, single crumb. And as one might say when watching Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, they are truly scrumptious!
