melts down completely, the semi-sweet pieces only partially melted. Leaving those lovely bits of we all love so much. And, of course, her cookies were a big hit with her guests.
But the story doesn't end there...
The misused bar was actually a gift from Andrew Nestle - of yes, the Nestle Company. As Ruth's cookies grew and grew in popularity so did the sale of Nestle's semi-sweet bars!
It wasn't long before Andrew Nestle and Ruth Wakefield struck a deal which was Ruth's printed recipe on the back of every package of Toll House Chips. In return for getting the recipe, Ruth received a lifetime's supply of Nestle's chocolate.
Ruth did write her own cookbook called "Toll House Tried and True Recipes," in 1940.
In 1977 Ruth passed away, and on New Year's Eve, 1984, the Toll House Inn burned to the ground. However, to this day the agreement holds and Ruth's recipe continues on the back of each Nestlé Toll House bar package. She continues to be so honored into the 21st century.
Thirty years later, with health on everyone's minds, here's a great twist to the traditional chip recipe. Add sugarless candy bits to your cookies! Traditional chip cookie taste with less calories.
Who knows... the next cookie could be your greatest invention.
