Essential Snow Day Supply: Chocolate Chips

Are you snowed in? Hope you've got a shovel and have stocked up on ice melt, bread, toilet paper and . . . chocolate chips. With every big storm warning, local stores always sell out of chocolate chips! Is everyone trapped inside making cookies? Let us know what you're making besides snowmen today; here's some chocolate chip inspiration to get you started.

With nearly 800 reviews, Alton Brown's The Chewy is the most popular chocolate-chip cookie on Food Network. Have you made it?

Some call it a guilty pleasure, some a nostalgic indulgence, but few would dispute the restorative power of pancakes for dinner.  Add chocolate chips and homemade cinnamon whipped cream for a Paula Deen-approved snow day dinner, y'all.

Aliza Schwartz won Food Network Magazine's secret-ingredient recipe contest with her Chocolate Chip Challah Bread recipe, surely it will win your family over, too.
