This is a delicious blend of fruit that I like to vape thru the steep from start to finish, that way i'm not stuck on one fruit. I have tried a few variants of this with different vendors and this blend is a perfect match for this recipe. The transition from one flavor to the the other. A recipe that changes from day to day .... I love it... don't let this one pass you by, and once mixed, after the bubbles settle, stay on it, till your 30 ml. is gone. I have been mixing 50ml. in 60ml. bottles to give me some room to shake it. Just works.
Sweet black tea and coconut cream
While not the most ambitious profile to go tackle, this was one of my first public recipes posted and pulled from ATF. I felt the need to go back to it just to see how I would approach it now and I have to say with the help of newer flavors.
As much as I am not a fan of FLV Sweet Coconut, I do really love FA Coconut and how well they both blend into creams. When I think of recipes with creamy coconut in them I think of Leche de Coco by hashslingingslashur, so I went with them at the same ratio but turned down a bit. Although weak, TFA Sweet Tea is still my favorite for straight up black tea. I have been messing around with this combination with VT Sugar Cane for a few mixes and haven't been disappointed yet. VT Sugar Cane makes it a little darker, sweeter and even a little more earthy. After testing a lot of cream layers I decided to go with CAP NY Cheesecake and FA Bavarian Cream. Working with Folkart and Alfred on multiple recipes, there is no denying those fuckers are straight up, unapologetically crema bavarese crazy, and for good reason. I used NY Cheesecake to fill out some of the missing texture and weigh it down a little more, but I didn't expect it to add as much to the coconut layer like it does. I wish I had more to say about why that flavor works in here but somehow it does.
.25% CAP SS if needed... probably needed.
Scrumptious peanut butter and coconut squares drizzled with velvety milk chocolate.
Peanut butter lovers unite!!! If you like peanut butter, then this classic is for you. I set out to create a favorite childhood treat of peanut butter and coconut treats which we dipped in cooking chocolate, as upmarket chocolate was a scarce luxury in my neck of the woods. The OG includes chopped nuts but I decided to omit these as a true nut texture and flavor is virtually unachievable...
The TPA and FLV Peanut Butter combo works wonderfully well to create a very authentic, pukka peanut butter. Combined, this duo delivers a smooth, nutty and roasted (thanks to FLV) peanut butter with a dense & mysterious grainy mouth feel. The slight saltiness which FLV brings adds to the "nut" element of the OG concept. A word of advice on the TPA PB - give it a good shake BEFORE mixing as it commonly separates when not in use for extended periods.
The coconut layer was a no-brainer...FA Coconut and FLV Coconut was born for this type of profile = dinkum, lightly sweetened , desiccated coconut. No more , no less. No mess, no fuss.
I opted for the magnificence of HS Chocolate cream and the resulting masterpiece which is Mayan Milk. It effortlessly checks all the boxes for a world class chocolate and requires virtually no assistance to shine, as it does that naturally.
The butter does what it is designed to do and adds a bit of buttery goodness to the mix whilst the marshmallow helps stick all the bits together and add a bit of body and sweetness.
Give this baby 7 days or so...
This is my first original recipe. I wanted to try my hand at something my family has loved since childhood. It turned out pretty good. The aftertaste is what seals this as a good rum ball. After the exhale you are left with the great flavor of thick dense chocolate cake and rum with just a hint of powdered sugar. That might be able to go up a little more. I'm going to keep working on this, though, so look for updates in the coming weeks.
I hope someone that loves these little delicacies gives it a shot and leaves some thoughts.
Thanks go to all the great people over on the DIY_Ejuice group over on discord for holding my hand at the beginning of my journey into DIY. You guys are the best.
