Tasteful Tuesday: Chocolate Chip Day

Tuesday, May 15th, 2018

Since Chocolate Chip Day (5/15), like Sturbridge Yankee Workshop, originated in Massachusetts, we couldn’t skip past it without sharing some recipes that include chocolate chips. Here are three from our blog, and feel free to leave your chocolate chip-including recipe in the comments below!

Homemade Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Regular homemade pancakes are delicious, but sometimes we need a little chocolate thrown in.

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Same goes for banana bread – chocolate chips add a wonderful surprise to this delicious creation.

White Chocolate Raspberry Scones

We love this recipe, and since white chocolate chips are technically chocolate chips, we felt it belonged on this list.
