CHOCOLATE & PEANUT BUTTER: When it comes to the rich, tantalizing taste of chocolate and the sweet, nutty taste of peanut butter, the two are essentially a flavor power couple.
"[Chocolate and peanuts are] complementary because they produce flavor through the Maillard reaction," Ziegler said. "That's the reaction you get whenever you roast nuts, grill steak or bake bread."
The Maillard reaction is the browning that occurs when most types of foods are cooked — a sign of chemical reactions occurring that change the way food tastes and smells.
The reactions "produces these flavors that have a unique pull to people," Ziegler said. He added that the salt in the nuts also provides "an attractive contrast" to the sweet chocolate. Salty and sweet — your taste buds know the drill.
