Nestle Toll House(R) - bake some good

Join us on our journey to bake some good in the world, one day at a time.

100 DAYS. 6 BAKERS. COUNTLESS SMILES.

NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® thinks the world is a better place when people are good to each other. And that baking is one of the very best ways to do that. So we’ve sought out others who share this passion, and we’re arming them with all the tools and ingredients they need to bake some good. Together, we’re dedicating 100 days to bake and share homemade treats to celebrate the big and the small, appreciate the under-appreciated and thank those whose kindness often goes unnoticed. It’s just the latest way we’re helping bake the world a better place™.

    Our Freedom Wasn’t “Free”

    by Nestle Toll House Bakers | Jan 24, 2017
    I have a deep-rooted love and respect for military service men and women, every time I see one dressed in their military attire an overwhelming feeling of pride comes over me. You see I come from a military family. My grandfather was a Veteran, my father was in the Army, my mother was in the ROTC Army, my sister retired from the Air Force, my brother retired from the Navy and my baby brother enlisted in the Army. Both of my parents were employed by the government so I grew up with constant reminders of government agencies along with government pencils and pens lying around the house.

    “SOME ASSEMBLY REQUIRED”

    by Nestle Toll House Bakers | Jan 23, 2017
    “Some Assembly Required” – The phrase striking fear into the hearts of parents post a child’s birthday celebration and often accompanied with “Batteries Not Included”. It’s also been known to reduce even the most determined, new furniture owner to tears as they stand over a sea of flat packed boxes clutching a wordless instruction packet. How does this relate to baking you might ask? Let me introduce you to the Marshmallow Snowmen, beyond cute and extra tasty with a variety of textures, these little guys are deserving of a “Some Assembly Required” sticker.

    BRIGHTEN THE WORLD…

    by Nestle Toll House Bakers | Jan 23, 2017
    One of my fondest memories of being a young child in Korea was my grandma. She was the kindest person I have ever known and I think of her so fondly. In fact, my only memories of Korea are of her and playing hair salon together. In particular, I remember putting pink rollers into her hair and tugging and pulling, but she sat there and played along. I’m sure at the age of four, I wasn’t the most talented hair stylist, and I wouldn’t doubt if she had an increase in hair loss due to my rough play, but she did it with no complaints. And that’s who she always was, looking at the bright side of things and just shrugging off the small stuff.

    THIS IS FOR YOU.

    by Nestle Toll House Bakers | Jan 05, 2017
    “I have a 12-year-old daughter who loves to bake and this is really inspiring. Thank you.” As I looked around the room at the forty or so nurses gathered, some of whom were finishing up shifts from the night before, I couldn’t help but be overwhelmed with gratitude. These women and men give a piece of themselves to their patients each and every day and yet had enough left to share with us and to fill this room with smiles, joy, and laughter. They’d taken the time out of their busy morning to spend a few minutes with us as we offered all the thank yous we could find for their efforts day in and day out.
