#1 Chocolate Chip Cookies

Who doesn’t love a good cookie?!  In fact, August 4th is National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day.  A new survey by Crumbl cookies finds Chocolate Chip Cookies are by far Americans favorite, with 62% of Americans saying there’s nothing better. When you think about it, they really are the snack that checks all the boxes – throw in a tall glass of cold milk and we’re feeling all sorts of goodness.  When ranked, 35% say chocolate chip cookies are the best, followed by peanut butter (28%) and brownie/double chocolate (25%).  What makes the perfect chocolate chip cookie? A fresh-baked and chewy one, made with brown sugar.  64% of Americans say they are “confident” they can make the “perfect” cookie.  Can you?
