The first known chocolate chip cookie was invented by a food lecturer and dietician called Ruth Wakefield in the 1930s. She made them in her Toll House Restaurant using Nestle chocolate bars, and became so popular that the recipe was eventually written down on the back of Nestle bar wrappers. For these chocolate chip cookies I used Belgian chocolate rather than Nestle; you are meant to let them cool first, but I can't resist eating them once they are out the oven and allowing the still melted chocolate to touch my lips. Based on the brands I used, each cookie should be about 97 calories.
