6 months ago I tried to nail a profile for my cousin of Chocolate Covered Strawberrys. Could never quite get it to work, trying lots of different combos. With the new INW Milk Chocolate hype and the Chocolate Milkshake recipe I decided to give it another whack. (This would be sort of a mashup of Chocolate Milkshakes! and a smidge of inspiration from Milk was a Rad Choice which is on this VERY SITE! (and if I knew how to link it here I would...)
My test was 30/70 and steeped for 5 days was the best.
Flipped to done. I considered messing with the chocolate but nah, this is good and I'm calling it!
Input welcome, this is definitely the best I've gotten so far on this profile.
When I first saw the flavors, I thought oh crap, what am I supposed to do with that??? I thought about some of the crazy flavors that I could put together, but in the end I wanted something that would hopefully be delicious. Then I started thinking flavor combinations… What can I put together to make this tasty? Given the constraints of the contest, I know I'm going to do cinnamon strawberry apple something. I started out with the idea of a crisp, but given my limited mixing abilities, I knew there was no way that I could make this work with 3 other flavors. So I started a Google search with strawberry and apple and I came across this Polish pie recipe with meringue. I know, I know we're supposed to think outside the box… and I went Bakery!!! The pie itself looked DELICIOUS! I ordered in every combination that might work in this recipe, some meringues, pie crusts, butterscotches, caramels, etc… and then I came across Cocoon…hmmm. Plenty of options to start with at any rate. Hey, this will help build my flavor base…right? After multiple a few trials, I think I finally found something that others would also enjoy. Hopefully you'll enjoy this as much as I do!!!
TLDR - Polish Pie cause I’m a Pollock.
It needs a minimum of 4 day steep to really bring out all the flavors, I prefer a week. I don’t use any of those newfangled steeping methods, but if you do…have at it!
CAP Cinnamon Danish Swirl – I used the 1st ingredient to give the apple cinnamon base I wanted the pie to have. I used it at this % so it gives a nice addition of cinnamon without overpowering the rest.
JF Fuji – This apple gives a nice tart taste and really works well with the other ingredients. I used it at this % and I think it melds nicely at this ratio. Due to the Cocoon, I used a lower percentage so that the apple didn’t overpower the rest
TFA Strawberry Ripe –This is a weaker strawberry so a higher percentage is needed. I just wanted a hint of strawberry instead of an in your face strawberry for the contest.
FA Apple Pie – I preferred this as the crust. You can’t have a pie without some kind of crust. I used it at this % and I think it gives you enough of the pie crust flavor without overshadowing the fruits.
TFA Meringue – This was a harder one. I had to figure out the right amount to add without muting the other flavors but still adding that meringue flavor that makes this pie so special. I used TFA over FA as the TFA was less sweet and gave me more of an eggy taste like a real meringue pie.
FA Cocoon – This was the kicker! This added a touch of the brown sugary caramely flavor that I wanted and a little apple flavor.
Sucralose – I only used .75% here. I think it helps with the sugary feeling you want with a bakery like this, without turning it into a candy.
FULL FLAVOR NOTES: http://diyordievaping.com/2016/11/05/chocolate-milkshakes/
I took Wayne's Cuprian recipe, replaced the Creme De Menthe with RY4 Double, adjusted some stuff, added some stuff and god damn was it tasty as hell..
Even a shake and vape tastes good so just try it, will ya!
Basically, it tastes like a caramel chocolate bar with a light tobacco finish. Like for reals..
Warning This was made originally using the old version of INW Milk Chocolate, the formula has since been changed. Sub with Jungle Flavors Milk Chocolate instead
No catchy recipe name or extensive notes or meticulous master crafting here. Threw a bunch of tropical flavorings together to see if I could get a tasty shake and vape. And voila, it's pretty damn tasty. Even better after sitting over night. If you have he flavorings and the hankering for a smooth/sweet tropical fruit/mango juice then definitely give this baby a shot. Also could replace TPA meringue with FA Meringue at 0.75%
