Originally I wanted to make a coconut custard/pudding but after tinkering around with the recipe I felt the chocolate element turned this into something truly delicious. If your a fan of these 2 flavours I really do recommend you give this one a go,I’m really happy with it thus far. You can S&V this sucker but naturally it will only get better and better. Please rate my recipe and leave a review for the world to see. Happy mixing 😀💙
STEEP: 3 - 7 Days
An impression of an Almond Joy. Trying to figure out how to effectively clone it, and this is the first step / iteration.
Really wanted a quick SnV desert tobacco. Connecticut Shade's chocolate/coffee notes lend well to blending with the chocolate mint of CdM, and they all work with cinnamon. Added some Australian Chocolate to make the chocolate the predominant non-tobacco flavor, and then the Red Burley and Native tobaccos to make it clear this is a tobacco vape.
Bonus for anyone who thinks they deciphered the acronym. And as always... use PEG or PDO if you're gonna mix at the suggested ratio, I don't need to end up on a Throat Offenders Registry because someone thought I meant they should vape that much PG.
[Update 7/15/2019] Added 0.5% FW Sweetener (or the sweetener of your choice at the comparable percentages). I found that as the original recipe aged it got harsher, and the sweetener seems to stabilize that a bit - I'm still testing)
Here is my take on one of my favorites the Black Forest Cake. If you are a lover of cherries and chocolate cake and have had a Black Forest Cake I'm sure you know what I mean. Unfortunately chocolate and cherry flavorings are difficult to mix with. Regardless this is my attempt at replicating this delicious cake.
The chocolate cake is a combination of JF Yellow Cake, HS Australian Chocolate, LB Lava Cake, and FLV Chocolate Deutsch. I tried to strike a balance between the different chocolate flavorings to minimize the off notes and accentuate the good notes - regardless chocolate flavors are very polarizing in the vape community and I'm sure to some it will not be agreeable to their senses.
To me INW Cherries, at low percentages, is fairly authentic with minimal cough syrup notes, but at those low percentages it was not enough to overcome the cake flavor. I decided to add INW Marzipan which increased the Cherry flavoring adding a sugary depth to the Cherry note. One thing I want to try is to get my hands on TFA Cherry Extract to see how that plays, but I had a difficult time finding it so I went with what I had.
Lastly is the heavy whipped cream which I used CAP Vanilla Custard and TFA Whipped Cream to emulate. The Vanilla Custard adds a richness to the cream note as well counteracts the dryness of the chocolate flavors. It was kept low to not elevate the Vanilla note as well as to minimize the steep time of the recipe. I added TFA Whipped Cream to further increase the creamy quality and volume to the vape. I tried adding it at higher percentages, but I found it wanted to mute some of the other flavors as it steeped.
For me the vape is a creamy chocolate initial exhale with the chocolate and cherry notes lingering on the palate with a slight tartness. Is it perfect? - no - but it is still quite good. For the most part I vape this in a single coil RTA like a KayFun V5 or the Coppervape Skyline clone with a 0.3 ohm Clapton coil running around 36-38 watts. I have vaped this in RDAs with mixed results so you have been warned. It seems that the flavorings are best delivered at a medium vape temperature. Since I mainly vape on single coil restricted airflow RTAs this recipe scratches my itch for this flavor profile.
Labor of love this recipe turned out to be.. The percentages took some time to play around with inbetween each steep time for each batch.. I never look up other peoples recipes to see how they are doing with thier own for this type of recipe.. I prefer to play around on my own and if I am close to someone else that would be my bad. This recipe has been on my ELR for sometime before I decided to release the recipe over here on ATF.. Huge shout out to Daytime Frank as well as Tam Vapes for all the support they give to the communities..
VT Bourbon with Chocolate of any type is so good and adds a very slight boozie note to the mix.
WF Coconut Custard is a huge versitile flavor to use and I like the coconut as it seems like coconut flakes and not a cooked type of coconut and not the sunscreen type of coconut.
TPA White Chocolate is always needed with all chocolates to give back the coco butter to the mix and creams it up and takes off the shapeness of all chocolates.
OOO Sweet Cream is a must with this type of mix to add the extra sweet creamy notes to not have a dry hit from the vape.
HS Australian Chocolate along with the fluffiness of the VTA Chocolate Mousse great pairing and you need to try it for yourself to see what I mean.
This is a recipe for Wayne walker on the diy or die Facebook page. This is untested and my thoughts of a startvto his profile of a banana coffee chocolate w/ cashew smoothie. If I had smoothie base I may add that aswell but its already on its way to becoming ferryfied so I will leave it out. Problems I can see with this recipe is the coffee is a strong flavor along with the chocolates the banana and almond will possibly get barried from them. The almond was used as a greasy nut that may help separate all the flavors to help you get each note. The ap is to help the chocolates and nuttiness. Another thought is you may be able to add some more banana with vta banana custard.
*edit so on my hadaly with a fused clapton 2x26g n80 fused w/ 38g n80 this is actually a pretty tasty vape the coffee and banana work well with each other I don't get much chocolate or almond but I was pleasantly surprised.
A fanciful blend of blood orange & fresh figs with a dab of dark chocolate.
This is a surprising pairing of two apparent contrasting fruits, but therein lies the beauty of this combination, and the joy of DIY experimentation.
FA Fig, when paired with a touch of Amber, provides a sweet and delicious, authentic fresh fig, not the dried/candied version many are accustomed to. This is not the same fig profile found in Fig Newton, which a sweet fig 'paste' with little flavor reference to the fresh version. Some describe the flavor as a mix between peach, pear and passion fruit which does describe some of the elements but does not tell the full story. The problem in describing a fruit is that each has its unique flavor properties and it is almost impossible to describe any taste to someone who have never tasted it. It is like trying to describe an apple to someone who have never tasted one - it is just about beyond the bounds of possibility without referencing something which it is similar to.
To me, FA Fig is the quintessential fig.
FW Blood Orange is, despite it's new rival from FLV, still the undisputed king of oranges and just work better here. Somewhat bitter, slightly sweet blood orange with a hint of grapefruit sums up this beauty. It blends seamlessly with the Fig, to create a deep, somewhat unusual & familiar, deep fruit taste sensation.
HS Australian chocolate adds a touch of cocoa to compliment the inherent bitter notes form the blood orange. It keeps keeps the mix interesting by just sitting in the background with its mate, INW Shisha Vanilla, who needs no introduction...
Give this baby 3-5 days to mingle and let rip!!!
