May 15th is National Chocolate Chip Day!
I can’t find information on how National Chocolate Chip Day came to be, but here is a blurb on chocolate chips!
I have been wanting to make rugelach cookies for a while now, and I have seen recipes that call for chocolate chips in the filling. So you know I’m going to go with that recipe! It is National Chocolate Chip Day!
The rugelach dough combines cream cheese and butter, so the dough needs to be refrigerated, but it is an easy dough to work with (and tasty too!). The filling of sugar, brown sugar, cocoa powder, and mini chocolate chips, comes together quickly and provides a nice chocolate taste without losing the taste of the pastry dough. If you’re not a big fan of chocolate (I still like you!), you can easily substitute some cinnamon for the cocoa powder and add chopped nuts in place of the chocolate chips!

Note: I only made one small change from the original recipe- I used mini chocolate chips instead of bittersweet chocolate. That said, click on the link above for the complete recipe and detailed directions!
