Never underestimate the simplicity in which the flavor is complete with satisfying complexity. Not for the faint of heart. If you be one that reaches for the black in a dish of jelly beans, take heed, this is for you. You may omit the tobacco if not desired.

A nutty baked tobacco with a touch of gooeyness that will leave you screaming for more when it's gone.

This is a mash up of Cardinal by Fear (https://alltheflavors.com/recipes/24962#cardinal_by_fear) and Peachonade by Ediblemalfunction (https://alltheflavors.com/recipes/99195#peachonade_by_ediblemalfunction).

The tobacco base used in cardinal was genius but OG holy vanilla is unobtainium today so I took this beloved recipe in a new direction. Peachonade is a wonderfully syrupy peach and lemonade. I can't think of anything more southern than smooth tobacco, uber sweet lemonade and fat juicy peaches. Where the air is hot soup and the trees drip with spanish moss, you need something bright, fruity, and, refreshing to relax in the shade with.

A rich velvety blueberry tobacco blend that is sure to please even the most discriminate blueberry vaper. I myself do not typically care for most blueberry recipes, but this one is an ADV for me.

I chose INW 555 Gold to add a nutty layer to the mix while adding a supporting layer to my tobacco layer consisting of FLV Red Burley. These two together are a match made in heaven

Holy Resurrection & Custard premium works to add that rich vanilla layer while adding body and moisture to this recipe.

Lastly, Blueberry MF was the only choice for me here. I tailored this recipe to my own personal flavor preferences and this one hit the spot for me. Its works perfectly at this percentage mixed with these other flavors exactly as they are in this recipe.

Only subs that could be used to to get the same end result is Super sweet. Feel free to use whatever sweetener you prefer at your normal % you use in other recipes. Or you can leave it out also if you prefer your liquids not as sweet.

Holy Vanilla v1 by DIYFS is a 1 to 1 sub in this recipe for Holy Resurrection. In a pinch you can use Holy Vanilla v2, but I'd try to use V1 or Resurrection if you can, to experience this recipe to the fullest

I hope you enjoy this recipe and please feel free to leave any feedback as it is greatly appreciated

This was a mix I made with Grey^ on the diy_ejuice discord. He wanted some help making a nutty tobacco with chocolate notes using the flavors he had. This is what we came up with. I tried it alongside him and he alternately liked it and didn't at the same time. It gave him ideas of where he wanted to go next which gave me the idea to share it with the community as a beginner tobacco. RB is generally recommended to new tobacco mixers due to its moist nutty uniqueness with chocolate undertones and general appeal. Cured is a great bacco body booster as well as a star flavor when used alone. Both of these entry baccos can be used in a variety of ways. The rest of the flavors used will either be in a mixer's arsenal already (cap vc & fw hazel) or be a welcome addition to one (hs aus choc).

What you get here is a dessert tobacco. Strong dessert on the inhale with a bacco finish.

Flavor notes
Bacco blend: RB/Cured are used to create the base. RB is pushed up to 2.5 here to compete with the rest of the flavors. I would rarely use it this high in a straight bacco blend. Cured is used to fill out the body. The RB can be lowered to 2 and still show up (more in the finish than the inhale) and cured can be raised to your comfort level (0.75 - 1+) for more bacco forward.

Accents: HS Australian Chocolate is not my favorite chocolate. Used low here it presents minorly and can likely be boosted to 0.75 or greater but I didn't try it. The idea was to make it an undercurrent. It doesn't taste quite right without some sweet. I chose Cap Vanilla Custard for its thick mouthfeel and ubiquity and vanilla note. FW Hazelnut was added to bump up the nuttier notes to poke through and support.

Final thoughts/Ramblings:
- I would say that there is room here for the addition of more bacco flavor if someone wanted to pull it up into the front. I rather enjoyed the bacco finish over the direct inhale. I rather suspect the bacco notes from some Hangsen's would do well here to dry it up some more if that's your thing, or possibly the addition of INW Gold Ducat or FLV Tatanka (or something suitably dark and sryupy) would be a nice addition.
- Adding some nuttiness would help to make the nutty note from the RB more prominent. As it stands, there isn't much in the way of nut really showing up here. I could also see the addition of an ry4 or FA Soho being a welcome accompaniment. The world is your oyster, my diy friends.
- If you choose to eliminate the Cap VC you may need to add a little sweet flavor to match the HS AC.

Steep time
Can be SnV but needs at least 24 hours to settle in in my opinioin. Better after 3 days, but at 7 days it seems to be as mature as I'd need it to be. Didn't last much longer than that for me :)


I wanted to create a light tobacco flavour, low on ash and a bit nutty. For the tobacco part, I chose Red Burly with a bit of Kentucky Blend, as they're a tasteful combination.

My choice for the nutty part was Flavorahs Beer Nuts. It´s a very potent, authentic, almost a little salty, light roasted peanut flavour which blends very well into the tobacco.

Milk & Honey at a low percentage adds some dark sweetness.

Hope you'll enjoy the mix as much as I do.

Simple 123 recipe. Caramel, nuts, tobacco. Red Burley pairs beautifully with Soho. Hangsen Ry4 adds some extra depth and fills in the base with some slight woody notes.

This is my entry for the Developed Flavorah contest.
Off the shake this reminds me on smoking a cigarette during christmas time. It’s warm and cozy with some desserty cinnamon flavor and just a touch of apple.

Richer after 3 days of steeping, I already see this as my afternoon vape during the upcoming cold season.
We all know the Flavorah Tobaccos. They seem to fade a bit after the first days, I‘m very curious about how they’ll come back after two weeks!

I love the combination of Red Burley and Kentucky Blend to get a cigarette style tobacco taste.
The nutty rice-milk taste of FLV Horchata builds a great bridge to the tobaccos while its strong cinnamon flavor pairs perfectly with the cinnamon side of Flavorahs Apple Filling.
Vanilla Pudding smoothes out the edges of the recipe and adds some more body to the whole vape.
I am really happy how this turned out, please leave some feedback if you try it.

Tested MTL on my Vapefly Holic RDA

This is a lighter tobacco mix with some coffee and a little bit of a dark chocolate floatin around in there. It's a recipe I've wanted to make for a long time, and was for some reason much more successful being limited to just one flavor company. I initially mixed this for a MTL setup, but I know most people mainly use a dripper or higher wattage device, so that's how I developed the profile. I also included the MTL version at the bottom of the description in case that's the way you vape. I personally get a Off The Record Raw Power kind of vibe from this, which I wasn't going for but turned out to be very similar. This one definitely has to steep for about 3 days to let biscotti calm down a little bit. That guy is big mad.

FLV Biscotti: The coffee.

FLV Tatanka: One of my favorite tobaccos from flavorah to use in dessert mixes. It has a light tobacco with a good amount of caramel, its the closest tobacco to an ry4 from them imo.

FLV Red Burley: Just threw some of this in there to boost the tobacco a bit. It also helps out the chocolate/coffee aspect too.

FLV Mocha: Used to boost the coffee/chocolate and add a cream to the mix. The cream more so shows up in a MTL setup.

FLV Smoked Butterscotch: Just to add a bit of butt scotch. When I originally mixed this it wasn't included, but when I tried this in a dripper I felt like it needed it.

FLV Sweetness: My favorite sweetener to use with dessert tobacco mixes now thanks to Developed. It sweetens everything else up without touching the tobacco.

If you wanted some more of a nutty tobacco in here, swap red burley for FLV Oriental Tobacco at the same %, that stuffs delicious. You could also boost the tobaccos as much as you want and the coffee/chocolate will still stay pretty present. I also noticed in the first couple of versions that more sweetener would bring out more chocolate as opposed to coffee.

MTL Version:
Biscotti same percentage
Tatanka same percentage
Mocha @ 1%
Sweetness same percentage
Red Burley bumped up to 1.5, unless you want a light tobacco
Take out smoked butterscotch, as it muddles the profile in MTL. It doesn't normally do that imo, but in this recipe I noticed it.

A huge thanks to Developed and Flavorah for hosting this awesome challenge!


This is a super smooth chocolate and mint tobacco. An after dinner vape that is just right and hits all of the notes.
