My mother remembers well cutting up a bar of chocolate to bake cookies when she was a teenager. Then, in the 1930s, the Nestlé Company (which had bought the rights to Ruth Wakefield’s recipe for Toll House Cookies) began manufacturing a prescored chocolate bar that could be broken into pieces just the right size for Toll House Cookies.

The morsels were introduced in 1939, and the rest is history.
