Chocolate chips are a quintessential American ingredient for baking and all things sweet. They add a touch of rich flavor to a variety of dishes, from cookies to cakes and everything in between. A holiday dedicated to celebrating the power of chocolate chips, National Chocolate Chip Day, is May 15. Get ready to celebrate with these 10+ recipes.

Recipe #1: Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Flour, baking soda and salt are combined in one bowl. In the other, mix up milk, egg, butter and vanilla. Stir in a generous amount of chocolate chips. After heating the batter in a skillet and browning both sides, what results is a stack of sweet and delicious hot pancakes. Top with maple syrup and butter!

Recipe #2: Betty Crocker’s Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies

Slightly crispy on the outside and chewy and gooey on the inside, these chocolate chip cookies are sure to delight fans who are searching for the perfect recipe. Enjoy these fresh from the oven, or enjoy leftovers sandwiched between frosting or ice cream.

Recipe #3: Chocolate Chip Cupcakes from Scratch

Egg, milk, butter and oil keep these cupcakes from getting too dry. Cake flour, which is finely milled, is low in gluten and makes these have a more delicate crumb. Chocolate chips and a tasty chocolate frosting (and more chocolate chips) top off these cupcakes that are best enjoyed slightly after making.

Recipe #4: Bakery-Style Chocolate Chip Muffins

Big, buttery and sweet, these chocolate chip muffins are just as good as what you could get from a store. They have a sugary and crackly top with a soft crumby interior. Cinnamon brings out the chocolate flavor and gives eaters the chance to indulge. For extra chocolate flavor, use jumbo chocolate chips in the batter for maximum mouthfeel.

Recipe #5: Chocolate Bread

Soft and springy, this bread does not require a mixer. Note that buttermilk and caster sugar work best in this recipe, but getting these ingredients will be well worth it. Cut a couple thick slices for maximum indulgence and enjoy the fruits of your labor with this tasty bread that is easier to make than a cake!

Recipe #6: Ridiculous Chocolate Cake

Moist chocolate cake is surrounded by a chocolate chip frosting. With chips in both the cake and the frosting, enjoying some of this will get you the chocolate fix you crave! Pudding mix, sour cream and chocolate chips make this oh-so-moist, and a cake mix cannot replicate what these trio of ingredients does. Pretty good!

Recipe #7: Chocolate Chip Blondies

Cannot decide between traditional chocolate brownies, or their vanilla-tasting cousins, blondies? You can get a mix of both when you whip up these Chocolate Chip Blondies. Make sure to use high quality brown sugar and insert a cake tester to be sure they are well baked. They taste good and are ideal for when company decides to stop by or when you want something sweet. Store each piece in plastic wrap to help them last longer.

Recipe #8: White Chocolate Chip Cookies

These crisp and chewy cookies are jazzed up with white chocolate chips. A sprinkle of sea salt on top adds a salty and sweet mouthfeel that is slightly different than when cookies are made with traditional chocolate chips. This is certainly a recipe for those who are looking for something different!

Recipe #9: Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

This cookie cake is like chocolate chip cookies, but easier! No more rolling dough into balls or getting each cookie the same size. The edges are crispy and the middle is chewy and light. A special chocolate frosting tops things off, making this a treat for a birthday or just because.

Recipe #10: 7 Layer Cookie Bars Recipe

Topped with coconut, pecans, chocolate and butterscotch, these gooey bars have a graham cracker crust and plenty of sweetness. The pecans can be subbed for your favorite nut for extra crunchiness. These are best when eaten shortly after making.

Recipe #11: Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread

This loaf of zucchini bread is the perfectly moist and sweet bread you crave. Chocolate chips make it even tastier, though. Maybe you can make a couple loaves and gift one to a friend? It is an ideal way to use up any extra zucchini you may have on hand.

Recipe #12: Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Half-and-half, whole milk and heavy cream makes this ice cream extra creamy, no eggs needed! Semi-sweet mini chocolate chips or chunks gives it a fantastic flavor, like the one you used to enjoy as a child each summer. Grab a big bowl or a cone and get eating!
