Chocolate Chip Celebration!

Chocolate Chip Party
I volunteer at the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles (definitely go when you visit Los Angeles) and a group decided to celebrate the freaking awesomeness of the chocolate chip. The chocolate chip is full of greatness and deserves its own party, right?!

Chocolate Chip Party
We had (clockwise) banana chocolate chip cake, espresso chocolate cookies (some with spice!), s'more bars, and oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. We also had brownies and Trader Joe's chocolate chip dunkers. Oh yes, the chocolate chip was celebrated big time! I'm surrounded by really excellent bakers!

Chocolate Chip Party
Luckily, we had a delicious cheese, cracker, pickles, olives, dried fig and sausage course too. You always need some salt and protein with a plate full of sweets. The sausages were delicious! They were the JFC brand Berkshire Pork Coarse Spicy Sausage from Japanese supermarkets.

Chocolate Chip Party
One of the departments has this old school shave ice hand crank unit. The shave ice comes out very thin. One of the nisei volunteers was giving it away. Um, if your grandma or folks have one of these in their garage, please pick up it up for me, okay?                                                                                                  

New York Times Chocolate Chip Cookie
I brought these New York Times cookies. The recipe is in the next post.

Thanks everyone at the museum for joining in on the fun...can't wait until our next food celebration! :) - mary

Oh yum, this all looks so delicious! I've just stuck the NYT chocolate chip cookie recipe in my notes for later. This is just such a wonderful theme for a party.

Considering the various combinations of chocolate chip cookies that can be made that you showed - with banana, oatmeal, espresso, double chocolate, also walnuts, macadamia nuts, ..... yes, totally deserves its own party!

An impressive spread! Mary, I'm really late in thanking you for the cookies. They were yum, as all of your baked goodies are!
