In honor of National Chocolate Chip Day on May 15, I wrote a poem so that we may celebrate, commemorate and appreciate wonder that is The Chocolate Chip.
You come in a bag that’s sealed so tight.
I must careful you don’t explode when I open it with delight.
For any bite-sized bit that I lose on the floor
Is one less I can eat, and I always want more.
So sweet and small, I can’t resist.
Your tiny treats, I eat by the fist.
Baked in cookies, brownies and pancakes so grand.
But I have to be careful you don’t melt in my hand.
White chocolate, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, too.
I’ll enjoy every flavor by myself or with my boo.
Your teardrop shape brings joy, not sadness.
Though if there’s a shortage, you can expect pure madness.
Chocolate chip, my one true love.
There’s nothing we can’t conquer, nothing we can’t rise above.
In ice cream and trail mix and muffins – it’s no lie.
Without you to enhance these snacks, I might cry.
So today we celebrate all the goodness you’ve given us.
By tempting our taste buds with your unwavering deliciousness.
Be sure to indulge in something with chocolate chips today! Below is a recipe I found on AllRecipes.com for Chewy White Chocolate Chip Gingerbread cookies. They’re fabulous year-round!
Makes 2 dozen cookies.
