This is mild but flavorful - sweet but not too much. While there's nothing super exciting about it it is a very pleasant vape. It does help to steep it a little while. The passionfruit, Rainier cherry, raspberry and Sugar orchid form the base with milk and honey and cookie to back it up then a touch of vanilla bean and frosting to round it out - and it works well.
Just in time for christmas!!! With that being said This recipe isn't for everyone and unless you want a molasses ginger snap cookie vape I wouldn't rush out and buy all of these unless you want exactly that a molasses ginger snap cookie. With that being said this also needs a long steep and this mix is dark as night so again this isn't for everyone but it is a delicious molasses ginger snap cookie and I mean exactly that!!! I have had Flavorah ginger snap for a long time and never used it because it's just that a dark ginger snap and unless that's exactly what your looking for than this concentrate isn't for you and the same goes for wonder flavours molasses unless you want exactly that molasses than this concentrate isn't for you but if you do want these two profiles than these two are perfect and when mixed together it makes a delicious molasses ginger snap treat.
I am going to break the notes in to two parts the cookie and the additives.
I used flavorah ginger snap I found I got a fuller cookie at 3% which may seem high but trust and believe if you give this recipe a try and wait t steep time you will have a magical molasses ginger snap cookie. Now with just ginger snap it seems a little damp so I wanted to firm and crisp up the cookie a little not a lot just a little so I added .75% of flavorah cookie this concentrate is well worth the price tag personally I use this flavor all the time and I got my bottle last march and I still have over a quarter of it and its only 15ml you do the math its worth every dollar. I mean cap sugar cookie you have to use at least 3× more in a mix for example so the cost isn't as much more as you might think in the long run. Anyway this simple mix of flavorah cookie and ginger snap makes up the cookie but then I added a little flavorah eggnog I used eggnog to emulate that eggy moistness you get when you bite into a fresh molasses ginger snap. Eggnog also has a spice note to it and that definetly helps with spicing up the cookie a little. The eggnog is at a fairly low percentage and you cant even notice its presence but of is vital in the texture and flavor of this delicate dark cookie.
Basically I used exactly what you would use if you were making molasses ginger snap cookies. Of coarse I needed molasses so I used wonder flavours offering and it didn't dissapoint at 1% a get dark sweet molasses not overpowering in any way. Then I wanted just a touch of cinnamon so I added .10% of flavorah rich cinnamon this is very light almost like a slight cinnamon sugar sprinkled over the top. So with that being said I needed some brown sugar and I used TFA brown sugar for this at .75%.. I then wanted a touch of vanilla to pull everything together now I don't expect the vanilla to come out in thallape much but it will help with the end flavor of the cookie and it will bind the other flavors together and blend into them all. I used flavorah vanilla bean for this I am sure you could sub this with another vanilla just don't go to high because flavorah vanilla bean is more of a light accent than it is a strong vanilla so pick the sub carefully if you need to Sub. It will be best if you don't gamble with a sub and stick to the flavorah vanilla bean at 1%. Now with this mix I used flavorah sweetness at .25% which is lightly sweetened I absolutely love flavorah sweetness but you may like a different sweetener or no sweetener at all totally a personal preference..
A dark, bready tobacco with a fruity fig finish. Something like eating a sleeve of fig netwtons and a freshly opened pack of cigarettes at the same time, but at least moderately more pleasant than that. It's a bit obnoxious, really. But obnoxious can be fun, and sometimes I need a tobacco that doesn't screw around.
This recipe has a long and tortured genesis. The original base for the recipe was a recipe called "Gravity" from a MixLife grudge match between myself and the mighty ID10-T. The original parameters of the mixoff were five flavors, all flavorah. I came up with a fig newton after messing around some of the darker, bolder flavors from the flavorah line. I eked out a win (shoutout to making stupid, risky choices) with this recipe:
.25% FLV Apple Pop
.25% FLV Cookie
2% FLV Ginger Snap
.25% FLV Raisin Rum
.75% FLV Sweet Fig (Subbed out for .5% FLV Fig, as the judges didn't actually have sweet fig.)
It was good enough to win, but it was overall just a bit too dark and intense for a fig newton cookie.
But hey, Ckemist suggested turning into a tobacco, so that's what we did. Lean into the darkness.
Not a ton has changed from the original gravity recipe here. I've cut the FLV Ginger Snap in half, just because that tobacco is already pretty darn dark and I didn't need everything going too bitter and burnt. I've also just embraced the sub for FLV Fig as opposed to FLV Sweet Fig. There isn't much of a difference, and the straight Fig is quite a bit more popular.
I don't really have a solid enough grasp with tobaccos to start throwing 4 at a time in here, so I just settled for one of my favorite non-aromatic tobaccos at the basic bitch percentage of 2%. Messing around with the tobacco here is a good idea. Make it work for you. I'd generally stay away from anything aromatic. If there's anything too close to an ammonia flavor in there it's going to push that FLV Fig into some weirder off notes. This also doesn't seem to work particulary well with oriental/turkish/herbalish tobaccos. You just want something solid for all the newton to bounce off of. Kentucky worked for me here. Cured felt a little lighter but it was a'ight as well.
I'm a bit of masochist, but adding .5% FA Black Fire adds a really interesting sweet smoke to this... I thinks it's a bit too dark to really work well with INW DNB or FLV Classic Cigarette for anything too overtly ashy. This also benefits quite a bit from .25% FA MTS if it's coming across as too harsh for you.
Steep time here is mostly going to be dictated by the Tobacco. This works pretty well after an overnight, and starts to fade out a bit on day 3. That tobacco should come back in about 2 weeks though, so maybe forget about it for a while, okay? I find it works best as a high nic mtl banger but do whatever you want.
Note/disclaimer : I know this is my fourth published recipe in recent weeks, but my time to play with flavors and mixes is limited. I teach elementary school and leading up to and being on break this past week have afforded me a little more wiggle room. These mashups/remixes are thoughts I've had while not having time to mix new recipes (usually on the car ride to and from work). Also, my second remix of Cardinal . . . the perfect RY4. I'm still tinkering with some original mixes: a pear/custard cornbread tart and a blueberry-basil/almond pie. I just have more tweaking to do.
Another mash up with some remixing . . . Twisted Obsidian by ENYAWREKLAW (obsidian is black) and Cardinal by Fear (cardinals become Popes).
The name can be seen as commonplace, as it's another name for the head of the Jesuits (or Praepositus Generalis). Conversely, it can be read more ominously referring to St. Malachy's 12th century prophesy that said there would be 112 more Popes, with the last one being the “black Pope,” ushering us toward the end times. Regardless of how you read it, I just enjoyed the play on the original recipe names . . . and the picture is actually Saint Ignatius of Loyola (the first Black Pope of the Jesuits).
Twisted Obsidian: FLV Cookie at 3%; changed up the graham cracker, dropping GC Clear (1.5%) in favor of FLV Graham Cracker (0.75%) and CAP Graham Cracker (1%) . . I like the hint of cinnamon I get from CAP and the additional texture from the FLV; dropped FA Butterscotch for FLV Butterscotch (1%), which I think goes well with the cream, custard, and caramel of the RY4; omitted the RY4 Double (3%) for the superior Holy Grail Ry4 at 4%; dropped CAP VC (0.5%) to amp up the creamy custard aspect with INW Custard at 1.5% and Devon Cream at 1% (automatic custard mixed with the marriage of cream and vanilla).
Cardinal: I used the Holy Grail RY4 as a replacement for RY4 Double in Twisted Obsidian, dropping the original percentage from 8 to 4. It also plays real well with the Custard, Devon Cream, and Butterscotch. I dropped the FLV Red Burley from 0.75% to 0.5%, and omitted FLV Kentucky Blend in favor of FLV Native Tobacco and brought the percentage up to 0.5. Red Burley is great with just about anything you throw it at, and I really dig the slightly spicier note of the Native.
I'm calling it a shake and vape even though I mixed it up yesterday while watching football and waited until today to try it. I mixed it 60vg/40pg. Another dessert vape . . . creamy, caramel custard with some spicy notes of tobacco and cookie.
This is a eggnog custard pie with a graham cookie crust!!! I figured with the approaching holidays why not put out an eggnog recipe!! I made 7 different profiles and it was between this and a boozy eggnog ice cream that I enjoyed the most. I may still release the other eggnog profile I liked but for now this one takes care of my eggnog cravings. I hope you enjoy or at least get some useful ideas from this recipe.
The graham cookie crust:
I used a combination of flavorah cookie and graham cracker with a little help from flavorah pastry zest. Pastry zest has a dual purpose it helps spice up the eggnog custard filling as well as the graham cookie crust. I find pastry zest likes to be used at a bit higher of a percentage for an additive ingredient like it is I think it shines in the 2% - 2.5% range here I used it at 2.5%.
The eggnog custard filling:
For this I used a combination of flavorah eggnog and inawera custard with a supporting hand from flavor art Vienna cream and a sprinkle of flavorah rich cinnamon. I made 7 different eggnog profiles while developing this recipe and I found that flv eggnog is much better in the 3% - 3.5% range when most are using it lower I think they are missing out because it is a much Fuller flavor at 3.5% and it is creamier as well and out of all seven of the profiles I ended up bringing the eggnog up to at least 3% because once I knew the difference in using this ingredient from 3% -3.5% there was no going back I had to use it at 3% - 3.5%. I used inawera custard because I wanted a creamy custard with no vanilla I only wanted the creamy custard and that's what I got at 2%. I used Vienna cream by flavor art because it is known for having eggnog like qualities at higher percentages. Now I didn't need any more eggnog flavor so I used Vienna cream at a standard 1.5% just to help conjoin the eggnog and the custard and help make them both creamier and it doesn't hurt that its an eggnog style of creaminess.
This recipe tastes decent on day three but take my word on it just let it sit for 10- 14 days because once all the flavors conjoin together and become one this recipe really comes alive.
Like always sweeten to taste me I use flavorah sweetness anywhere from .25%-.50% in almost all my mixes. I am not putting it in the ingredient list because most of you use a different sweetener and that's fine that's what's great about diy no one can tell you how you want it!!! I used flavorah sweetness at .25% in this mix because it doesn't need to be overly sweetened and .25% seems to be just right for my taste preference.
This is supposed to be a graham cracker cookie covered in butterscotch and sprinkled with candied almonds.. Sounds good right??? I am sorry about the price tag on some of these concentrates this mix uses quite a few pricey flavors $$$$.I will say the reason I used these flavors is because they are absolutely delicious. Flavorah cookie is probably my favorite cookie flavor available to me and I have a lot of cookie flavors.. A 15ml bottle goes a long way because you can use it at low percentages and still have a great cookie. Anyway enough justifying the use of expensive flavors and on to my description.
The graham cracker cookie:
The main star is Flavorah graham cracker. I used flavor west graham cracker to help with the body of the graham cracker. To me at this point it almost seems like a moist graham cracker if you will and I wanted a crispy graham cracker cookie so I added just a little of flavorah cookie but that little bit goes a long way in making the graham cracker crispy and cookie like. I then added Capella sugar cookie and do I really need a reason I could take a shower in capella sugar cookie it smells and tastes so good but using capella sugar cookie adds a two day minimum steep because its made with alcohol. So now I have the graham cookie but I wan this graham cookie dusted with cinnamon sugar so I used flavorah pastry Zest and .15 % of rich cinnamon. If you don't like cinnamon then just don't use it the pastry zest does good jib by itself but I like it with a little extra cinnamon!!! I also added TFA brown sugar to complete the dusting of my graham cookie. Now let's make the crust so it can be dusted and crusted!!!!
Well on top of this graham cookie dusted with cinnamon sugar there is a layer of smooth butterscotch that is made with a combination of flavor west butterscotch which adds an almost hardened candy type of butterscotch taste and feel. The second butterscotch is flavorah butterscotch this isn't candy like at all its a smooth creamy butterscotch. When the two atr mixed you get the best of both worlds and a great butterscotch topping. Then sprinkled on top of this delicious masterpiece is so!e candied almonds that I made with a combination of flavor art almond and flavor art marzipan at a low percentages. The flavor west butterscotch also helps pull off the candied almond affect.
Anyway I think this recipe is amazing like I said drop the rich cinnamon if you don't like cinnamon heavy recipes then just don't use it because this shit is delicious anyway you shake it and after a minimal steep I can't wait to see how this blends after a long steep. Either way I am loveing it now. All I can say is Graham Wow!!!!!!
I used .35% flavorah sweetness in this mix. Sweetness is a sweetener you can use it or not use it its up to you and what you want....
Well here's another all flavorah recipe. You can hate on me for the price of the concentrates or you can love me for a delicious recipe with very little steep time. The ingredients pretty much speak for themselves. It's a creamy coconut pudding pie with a cookie crust. This creamy coconut pudding pie is topped with whipped cream. This recipe is perfect on a 3 day steep but I am sure it will get better and better the longer it steeps but it is a very tasty vape after 3 days. I had Flavorah cheesecake in this recipe and I liked it but after a steep it left a curdled milk taste so I removed it all together and upped the cookie .25% because I had used the cheesecake for the crust.
This recipe is a tweaked version of the original Obsidian. Flavor is a warm and buttery cookie dough recipe rolled up into an RY4. There's more a focus on the cookie dough in this recipe compared to the original. It's great for those who don't enjoy Pie Crust.
