This is essentially a stone recipe (base recipe) that is beautiful on it's own or ready for you to add your fruits, chocolates or creams to. At just 5.5% total flavorings, there is plenty of room to layer in a lovely jam note with some cream. The profile is designed as a slightly sugar dusted home baked cookie, I have chosen some unlikely ingredients but for good reason. I wanted to get a mixture of as many of the inconsistent textures that your likely to experience in a home baked cookie, from the little hint of cinnamon to that soft doughy note as well as the hard and soft edges of the cookie. After around a week's steep time the various notes seem to work really well here, from the graininess of the cookie through to the buttery and slightly nutty note, this blend will provide you with a lovely recipe platform! Enjoy!
In the original recipe I mixed up on the show I used 1% of flv sweetness. While in the long run this isn't bad, it does have too much of the stevia backnote for me at this level, but it will steep out after about a month. I dropped it in this recipe to a more reasonable level of 0.35% but that means initially the mix won't be as sweet. If you want it sweeter add some sucralose based sweetener to your liking instead.
Overall the flavor is almost there now that it has had a 10 day steep. It tastes like a mouthful of the new m and m candies. While I'm not a huge fan of the LB chocolate roll taste, as it does kind of taste like cheap chocolate, it is authentic to the type of cheap chocolate flavor that the candies actually have...though I guess I'm a bit of a chocolate snob and have been spoiled on European chocolate which is so much better than ours in America.
I may still adjust this recipe after I let this mix steep for the full month, which I think the chocolates and cream and peanut flavors really need, but the coffee notes are good.

This recipe started out as an attempt to create a baked chocolate chip cookie. At first it seemed like there just wasn't enough chocolate so I added in the milk chocolate. Once I did that the FLV milk chocolate kind of took over, and after a nearly 3 week steep it turned into one of those Chocolate Pirouette cookies.
The Greek Yogurt is used to enhance the bakery flavors in the cookies and not meant to be tasted in the recipe, so I don't recommend using more of this ingredient. The Cream was intended only to smooth also as an enhancing flavor, so it should really stay at this level too.
In fact, I don't recommend increasing the percentages at all on this recipe even if you are a muted taster, as I had my husband (a less than average palate) try it and he identified what it was immediately and found it quite nice. For me, even though I'm a sensitive palate, I enjoy the flavor as it is, it is a little strong for me, but it has steeped long enough to be smooth and sweet.
It doesn't need a lot of sweetness to it, as it seems pretty sweet, so I only added a small amount of FLV sweetness. Since those cookies are sweet, but not like sugar coated, if you go with a sucralose sweetener use a small amount, (under 0.5%.)
As for steep time, I only put that amount of time because this is when I've tested it since my initial first week testing. I tested it shake and vape, it wasn't very good at that time. At one week is when I added the chocolate, so the chocolate had almost 2 weeks steep time in and the cookie notes had almost 3 weeks of steep time. I would definite steep this one at minimum 2 weeks. If it doesn't seem quite right give it a few more days to another week. But once it's done steeping it is a beautiful after dinner or with coffee vape. Though I have been vaping this flavor all day, I don't think this would be an all day every day for a week kind of flavor, but I can easily add this to my flavor rotation to have with my coffee in the morning or as a dessert replacement at night, or a midday snack.

As it turns out the FLV Cookie Dough I received was mislabelled and is actually FLV Cookie! Appologies for the confusion, just received an email notifying me today!
I have no idea how it will taste with the cookie dough, just re ordered some. But I can confirm that Cookie is very good in the meantime. After 6 days steep the Icecream came through, sandwiched between the sweet, nutty cookie.
It's got to be TFA VBIC, CAP's offering, whilst being really creamy just doesn't have enough flavour to stand up to the cookie.
Inspired by Wayne's weekend mixing assignment.
Works good as a shake and vape, you mostly get a peanut butter caramel cookie, with a lovely texture. Tasty, moorish and not harsh in any way whatsoever. Not much Icecream at first but that'll come with the steep.
First time working with FLV and already impressed.
Any feedback appreciated!

This is my take on a cookie dough without using a cookie dough flavoring. I wanted to create a light chocolate chip flavor with a peanut side note.
FW sugar cookie 1%. Used as the cookie base and adds a slight sugary note
FA cookie 1%. Used also as cookie base and to add texture
CAP vanilla whipped cream 2%. Used to balance out the chocolates and adds a creaminess to the profile.
CAP vanilla custard 2%. Used to make the recipe a little denser and to add an eggyness to the profile.
TPA pie crust 1%. This was the first time using this flavoring but hoping it will add to simulating the "cookie dough" .
TPA Brown sugar 0.5%. Used to add a dark sugar for the chocolate.
FLV peanut butter 1%. Just a bit of peanut. It seems to be a little dry but at 1% it seems balanced with the CAP golden butter at 1%.
TPA sweetener 1.5%. Well who don't like sugar.
CAP Golden butter 1%. This seems to give the FLV peanut butter the creaminess it requires.
TPA bittersweet chocolate 0.5%. I like to use this flavoring at a low % to give it a chocolate chip feel.
TPA double chocolate (clear) 1%. This pairs well with the TPA bittersweet chocolate to give the chocolate a more balanced flavor.
I may not have nailed the cookie dough base in this recipe, however, it has a great flavor with hints of chocolate and peanut butter on the exhale. Can be a Shake n Vape but I would suggest a 3 day steep. This is a first version. I normally post my first versions of recipes and keep 2nd or 3rd versions private for commercial purposes.
