Candy Toppings like sprinkles are a great way to spice up any dessert. The first chocolate chip was made in 1933 when Ruth Graves Wakefield cut up a Nestle semi-sweet chocolate bar into little pieces and baked them into her cookies. Ever heard of chocolate chip cookies? She invented them! Now they are made with milk chocolate and even butterscotch. Why not drop some sweet candy toppings on your ice cream sundae tonight?
