It is Friday, give yourself a treat for a great work week, it is National Chocolate Chip Cookie day!

August fourth is a day to enjoy those tasty bits of chocolate in your favorite cookies.

And we have Toll House Inn owner, Ruth Wakefield, to thank for the delicious treat!

In the 1930's - she was baking cookies for her guests when she decided to alter the recipe using small pieces of a Nestle Chocolate Bar.

The "Toll House" cookie recipe was a hit and was eventually bought by - you guessed it - Nestle.

So whether you bake or buy your favorite chocolate chip cookies - take a moment today to celebrate National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day!
