This was mixed up for a holiday live steam fund raiser on Fresh03 channel for St Jude children hospital
The fa buttershcotch and caramel work to create that soft creamy topping
pound cake is infused with a pudding and irish cream for a warm full dense vape
NOTES: this is pretty sweet without any sweetner, bu t feel free to add sweetner if you like it really sweet. FLV sweetness would be what i recommend. FLV Irish cream is my favorite Irish cream but FA Irish cream can also be used at the same percent it will lend a bit of a chocolate back note
I don't remember much from childhood. I think I simply killed off many of those brain cells in my delinquent adolescence, but I do have one fond memory that I doubt I'll ever forget.
I remember I was maybe 3 or 4, in pre-school, and my dad had been working odd hours all week so we had barely seen each other at home. This particular day, he didn't have to go in. My mom typically took me to school, but this time my dad offered -- except when we make it to the school, he simply keeps driving his 70s Ford Explorer straight past the drop off area. Confused, I ask him where we're going and he smiles while answering "we're playing hookie!" I'd never heard the term, so that didn't help relieve my confusion at all, but it sounded fun so I went with it.
We went and got some cheap McDonalds pancakes, played some minigolf, and saw a movie for the day.
With the story of quality time spent doing goofy shit with a loving father as inspiration, I'm submitting this as my entry to December's mixers club theme. The theme this month (and last?) is telling a story, and this just felt like the right thing to share. This is a simple, fast food pancake & maple syrup. How about some recipe notes?
FW Waffle + CAP VCC + PUR Cookie + FLV Cupcake batter: This is the pancake. FW waffle does a pretty good job as the foundation here, but to myself and most others it's just not cakey enough. That's where Van Cupcake comes in, except VCC is pretty hefty on the palette and has a strong icing kinda vibe to me for some reason. So I kept it low and helped mellow out some of it's heavy vanilla and icing notes with FLV cupcake batter. Add some soft crumble with PUR Cookie, chose this over FA cookie as it's a bit softer of a cookie IMO.
FA Butterscotch + FA Maple Syrup: These sort of team up with the nice maple notes in FW Waffle to provide a great gooey, buttery syrup without being overpoweringly MAPLE.
FA Joy + CAP LMP: Bit of a twist. My dad nowadays likes to cook his pancakes with a bit of lemon juice in the batter for some sweet zing and almost fries them so they have a really nice crispy ring around the edges. So I tried to include those notes in this, still unsure if they're coming through but I feel like I taste some fried stuff and soft lemon in the background somewhere occasionally.
OFFNOTES: As a certain reddit flavor review put it, FW Waffle can taste like you're just licking a hot iron. I tried to keep it at a respectable but low enough range to avoid this but sometimes I still get a hint of it. If you like slightly burnt pancakes from a cast iron pan, it may not bother you though. Hoping that with time a long steep will help the syrup and cakes blossom enough to cover it up.
From day 1 of my mixing career I have been on a quest to make the perfect chocolate milk. And with many failures, I believe I have gotten about as close as I can to that profile with Mayan Milk.
As all mixers know, chocolates are one of the hardest profiles to tackle. The reason being that most, if not all, chocolate flavorings have off notes. But this shouldn't be surprising in that chocolate flavorings in the cooking world are bitter, chalky, and just down right nasty. Chocolates are derived from the cocoa bean or cacao(/kəˈkaʊ/) bean. The beans are dried and fermented, then made into a powder. Chocolate is made from this powder with the addition of sugars and fatty ingredients. So in essence, chocolate flavorings are like a spice and they need to have supporting flavors to make a good chocolate.
So, in my quest for the "perfect" chocolate milk vape, I approached chocolate flavorings as a spice. Now, I don't believe there has ever been a "perfect" recipe, but for a chocolate milk, I think this is as close as I can get,.... for now ;) .
I began testing chocolate flavorings very early in my mixing career and the testing continues today. I have found a few that seem to work better than others and have the least "off notes", and those are the ones I used in my batching of this recipe.
For this recipe, I settled on CAP Double Chocolate V2. This is a highly under-rated flavoring in my opinion being that I don't see it much in other's recipes. It's a thick, deep chocolate, almost a dark chocolate, that only needs that sweet and fatty infusion to make it into a nice chocolate.
Most of my chocolate supporting flavorings have an inherent sweetness, FLV Cream, FA Meringue, LB Vanilla Ice Cream. These help add sweetness while adding creaminess and body to the mix.
I have noticed that most chocolate flavorings need either a coconut note, or a caramel note to simulate either cocoa butter(which is in most chocolates), or the caramel to simulate a richness like a caramel chocolate. In this mix I decided to go the caramel route. It seemed to be the better choice for a "Chocolate Milk" rather than using a coconut flavoring which seems to be better when going after a "Milk Chocolate" if that makes sense. FA Butterscotch was my choice at just 1%.
The secret weapon here to make this into a chocolate milk that would stand out among the others is HS Chocolate Cream. I absolutely love this flavoring. It gives the mix a certain "sourness", kind of like a yogurt but with more emphasis on the creaminess. It really makes the mix stand out.
In cooking, to make any real chocolate recipe, you have to sweeten it up. I added .75% CAP Super Sweet to accomplish this. If you find it too high, feel free to lower it. But trust me on this, CHOCOLATES NEED TO BE SWEET!
If there's one con to this recipe, I would say that when vaping this, I have to change my cotton about every 2 days. It's a pain, but so worth it.
This needs to steep for 4-7 days, but if you can, a 2 week steep is so worth the wait.
Just to let everyone know in the UK and EU,.... VanillaVapes now has Hangsen Chocolate Cream in stock! So, for those in the UK and EU, that were wanting to mix up Mayan Milk, now you can!
I hope you will mix, comment, and or rate, it make us all better mixers. :)

EDIT: OK, anything below is out the window. It's gone through so many changes since I posted this that the profile has nothing to do with where I began or was striving for. HOWEVER, it came out to be a really tasty vape so that's why I'm leaving it up.
Was trying to emulate my favorite pipe tobacco I used to roll into cigarettes back in the day. It kind of took a turn when the profile matched, but the experience was just meh. Added some depth with the fruit and it rounded out nicely but nowhere close to what I was going for. Incredibly smooth.
This is one of those, that if you don't have all the flavors, you can probably mix and match, but if you're getting sick of the same fruit/desert mixes, winter is rolling around and you need a change, go for the Nic Riv splurge and get em all. You need these in your pantry anyways.
I Have been a fan of the yogi original eliquid for while and wanted to get that
4 days this is maple forward , at 1 week the maple syrup settles down and the other notes come forward- and really blends into a nice mix around 2 weeks.
The granola lacks in texture so some cereal 27 or AP is needed to bring that forward
This does not need sweetener, but if you are looking for that yogi commercial flavor then add it. Or a touch of marzipan 0.30 also works here
It's starting to get a little cooler, and the leaves are starting to cover the ground, here in Tennessee.
Autumn definitely inspired me to create this recipe. The custard base used in this recipe is Fresh03's quick base using LB Vanilla Ice Cream, and Flv Vanilla Pudding. I do enjoy a good tobacco vape, but to me the Holy, Holy Grail RY4 flavoring is more of a subtle caramel, and the FA Butterscotch helps enhance that caramel note. I use TPA Kettle Corn, and Flv Popcorn for the corn notes. I don't have FA Corn, but I think these two do a decent job for a very subtle corn note.
You can enjoy this after a 7 day steep, but I recommend a full 2 weeks.
