“The first ever chocolate chip cookie was invented in America in 1930 at the Toll House Inn restaurant in Massachusetts. Now a firm favourite across the world, the chocolate chip cookie is the most popular type of home-baked cookie in the States. Big, soft and chewy, they are a treat for kids – especially big kids like me! This recipe will give you delicious cookies that are much better than any shop-bought version. The secret to the flavour is to use the best dark chocolate chips you can find.”
