Chocolate Cookies Are Super Addictive. Here’s Why.
Chocolate cookies are a treat that most of us can’t resist and they take me straight back to my childhood. There was nothing better than the smell of fresh, chocolatey cookies baking in granny’s oven. In fact, I’d end up eating the raw cookie dough before we had even baked them. Somehow, there’s always space for these yummy delights.
I don’t have much of a sweet tooth, but there’s something nostalgic and scrumptious about tucking into a freshly baked chocolate cookie. I can pass on the other desserts, but if you’re like me, a few bites of a cookie is never satisfying enough!
Chocolate Cookies Are Nostalgic
The Texture And Flavor Are Culprits
Science and facts might be explanation enough. But, you cannot deny the irresistible texture of cookie dough itself. The ingredients are combined perfectly and tickle your senses in every way possible.
Not only the smooth and morish texture but the smell too. Chocolate cookies have a very inviting scent and consist of the ideal balance of salty and sweet. Interestingly, baking professionals admit to creating and experimenting with cookie dough textures specifically designed to get people addicted to them based on the mouthfeel. Nobody thinks twice about the salt content in a cookie either, but believe it or not it’s quite high. Without the salt, the cookie tastes a lot duller.
All the secrets include using butter, brown sugar and lots of vanilla extract and sweeteners. These ingredients combined create the smooth texture that many people cannot resist. The best way to test whether or not a cookie has an ‘addictive’ quality is to look at how people behave when eating them.
Beware of bakeries and people who enjoy baking these kinds of things because you’re more than likely a test lab rat. They want to see if their recipe is a success or not based on how many you end up eating in one sitting. The recipe should be so irresistible that it seems impossible not to grab another.
So, there you have it! Chocolate cookies are designed to get you hooked.
