Nothing beats the feeling of enjoying a movie while snacking on some delicious edible cookie dough. This trend is taking shape here in Singapore and in this post, we will guide you on how to make the most of it. After reading this, you will want to spend more time at home watching movies rather than going to an actual cinema!
Background to the popularity of edible cookie dough
Edible cookie dough first started as a product that is used in ice creams. The world over, many ice cream vendors would use this dough to add flavour to the ice cream and also attract more customers. Over time, people started loving it and morphed into a trend that many restaurants caught on to. More restaurants started offering the meal as tasty dessert to complement their meals. Once this happened, food enthusiasts also tried it at home, and before anyone could even realize what was happening, many people were making their own.
How to prepare edible cookie dough
Edible cookie dough is quite easy to make and can be more fun when done with family and friends. You can choose to assign roles, with one person preparing the dough, another mashing it to perfection, and yet another adding milk to the process. Adding milk to the dough needs some form of precision as too much or too little can lead to problems with the texture and taste. But more than anything else, it is important to spice up the snack a little bit using some chocolate chips. This part of the process can be delegated to kids if they are around. The bottom line, however, is to make this process as fun as possible. Edible cookie dough is the perfect addition to any hangout or movie night at home with friends and family.
What to pair with your cookie dough
Aside from a good movie or series on Netflix, there are other things that you might want to consider to pair with your snack. Some soda is highly recommended for those that have no problem with sugary beverages. In some healthier eating circles, you will find milk is highly recommended to take with cookie dough. However, this does not work well for lactose-intolerant people. Fruit juice is also highly recommended, and this is actually a healthy option that works well for many people. You can blend some at home and take it with your edible cookie dough. Additionally, for a romantic movie night at home, you can opt for some wine to take with the snack. Red wine works best because of the subtle bitter taste.
Edible cookie dough is a perfect way to spice up a movie night at home. Whether you are alone or looking to spend the night with your better half while catching up on some Netflix, this is the perfect snack for the night. While making some at home is a great idea, you can also order some from Dancing Elephant Ice Cream.
