It is often incorrectly reported that the chocolate chip cookie was
an accident, and that Wakefield expected the chocolate chunks to
melt making chocolate cookies. In reality, Wakefield stated that she
deliberately invented the cookie. She said, "We had been serving a
thin butterscotch nut cookie with ice cream. Everybody seemed
to love it, but I was trying to give them something different. So I
came up with Toll House cookie." (
