According to history Ruth Wakefield was in the middle of baking Butter Drop Do cookies, the recipe called for baker’s chocolate.  Unfortunately, Ruth had discovered her pantry was out of the baker’s chocolate.  She grabbed a semi-sweet chocolate bar chopped it up and added it to the recipe.  To her surprise the chocolate did not melt and the cookies where a success.
