If there is one thing we can all agree on, it is the fact that chocolate makes the world go round. These chocolate chip recipes for National Chocolate Chip Cookie day prove that. I mean, I bet you cannot look at these photos without drooling. Go on, I dare you.
The holiday, which falls on Aug. 4, is an ode to the wonderful world of chocolate chips. They make it so easy to sprinkle goodness onto everything you eat. Of course, it doesn't hurt that chocolate has health benefits, too. This sweet treat can reduce stress, protect your brain, and decrease inflammation. Oh, and it tastes pretty darn good.
Science even backs the concept of eating chocolate for breakfast. (I included several tasty brunch recipes on this list, so I got your back.) With chocolate chips, this becomes a super easy task. Just scoop and toss 'em in. In just a few seconds, you can transform absolutely any recipe into a chocolate-infused treat. I think that counts as a win.
However, when you cannot deal with an actual recipe, there are countless ways to enjoy chocolate chips. Throw a spoonful into your favorite oatmeal, granola, or cereal. They might even work in a delicious fruit smoothie. If all else fails, eat them by the handful. No judgement here.
