This is a Hail Mary. There is no picture for it because I don’t know what this would look like, but boy does it taste good.
WF Deep Fried Pastry Dough for a thick bakery texture.
WF Croissant for some buttery bakery.
WF Caramel Butter to counter the brightness of the fruit.
WF Coconut Custard to thicken the cream and add coconut.
WF Passionfruit for Passionfruit.
WF Sesame Candy for some god damn flare.
Some might say that Die Hard is a Christmas movie, others refuse to acknowledge that. What I believe to be indisputable however, is that Die Hard’s antagonist Hans Gruber planned nearly every detail of his heist perfectly. What detail did Gruber fail to account for? Lunch.
When you’re hungry, you’re distracted, and when you’re distracted you make mistakes. Gruber was no exception. Underestimating John McClane might be something we all chalked up to hubris. Then again, it could just as easily have been that Gruber was trying to expedite things as his stomach protested the long day at Nakatomi Plaza. Gruber needed to pack himself a lunch, and what is the single most American lunch he could have packed to further solidify his claim that he was a hostage and not, in fact, the leader of the criminals who had stormed the plaza? Peanut butter and jelly. That’s right. I submit that the key to preventing the Die Hard franchise from making it past the first installment was little more than a quaint sandwich that could have helped sell Gruber’s claim that he was an american, and further prevented him from making non-trivial mistakes that cost him his escape in the end. This… is that sandwich.
So lets break down the actual recipe, yeah?
Okay, so there are 3 things I was absolutely certain of going into this one: PB DX, Concord Grape w/ Stevia, and INW Grape(s) would be core to success here.
I was absolutely certain from the minute that I tasted CAP Concord Grape that the Concord grape and Grape(s) would be enough to sell grape jam authentically. A light touch of FW Sweetener really helps push the sugary sweet jam aspect and separate it from the other two elements.
TFA's Peanut Butter DX is still, in my opinion, the gold standard for Peanut Butter flavors, and in this case it needed a little help from FW Hazelnut to help it remain present, and FLV Beer nuts to add a touch of salt and to help it stand up separately from the jam and bread.
Plain ass white bread, this should be simple, right? This was honestly where I struggled more than anything else. I came to the conclusion that WF Croissant would be too dry and flakey on its own, a little too authentic to an actual croissant. So I needed to make it a little chewier, a little gummy. FLV Starch base brings the croissant back down from its high horse and turns it into a much more authentic bread rather than pastry.
I'm calling for a 7 day steep, but I can't say I feel it needs the extra time, if you're impatient it's good right off the shake but it should fully come into its own in the course of a week.
This is basically an apple turnover milkshake....was trying to make a McDonald's apple turnover, inw biscuit+ wf croissant( the inside)+ VT croissant ( the outside), apple filling+ caramel rice crispy treat for the jammy filling and vanilla custard cheesecake for a sweet icing....but apple filling melted everything in a milkshake thing so....why not add VT sweet cream and blend that sh*t. He'll yeah! A delicious apple turnover milkshake...kinda... haha! Love it! Personally i add .75% of FW sweetener because I like it even sweeter! Enjoy!
Pasteles con guava y queso
A Cuban pastry with guava and cheese. Usually a stuffed pastry, but I wanted the guava and cheese on top because this isn’t for eating.
VT/WF Croissant & FA Apple Pie for the pastry shell.
LB Baker’s Touch for a little spice and thickness.
LA Cream Cheese icing for cream cheese icing.
CAP Sweet Guava as the fruit base and FW Blood Orange to make it sticky and vibrant.
*I’m going to try this next time with 1% OOO Vanilla Custard Cheesecake instead the the LA Cream Cheese Icing.

Lets break this one down:
VT Jam It : I have a love hate relationship with this flavor. The jam effect is pretty on point in my opinion, however, it has a very citrus like top note to it, and almost an apricot taste and aroma. This makes it slightly difficult per se to pair with other fruit flavors when making a really convincing jam. However, if youre like me, you spread butter AND jam on your toast, and when you pair that with strawberry jam, it almost gives it that light citrus kind of flavor that I get from VT Jam It. Check this flavor out if you dont have it, its pretty fun to mess with.
WF Croissant - This one is an interesting one. WF is probably my favorite flavor company right now, and thats not because im a Canadian. I actually love the way this one tastes, and after a week to two week steep, it tastes like those oily buttery flaky croissants you get by the dozen at the supermarket. This isnt the "jam monster" toast taste that you might be hoping/expecting, however, give it a try. I find it to be a really nice almost 'lite' version of the commercial juice but with a unique twist to it.
TPA Butter - what can I say, its fuckin butter. Tastes like butter. Dont use too much or youll be drinkin butter. Butter butter butter.
Chemnovatic Strawberry - Im still on the fence about Chemnovatic. Their Lemon Cream Wafer is out of this world amazing, so I had to order their whole lineup. Chemnovatic Strawberry is nice and flavorful but not too dense. Lacking a bit in mouth feel but I dont want to press it higher and get a candied strawberry taste, so thats where FA Juicy Strawberry comes into play.
FA Juicy Strawberry - helps give some body to the red touch and make it an overall nice strawberry jam. Helps overpower the citrus notes of Jam It.
You can essentially swap out the strawberry flavorings for any fruits that you wish. Thats the beauty of Jam It and this recipe. Go ahead and try it and feel free to let me know what you think. I wouldnt go too high on the fruits, and be careful, as some dont pair too well with butter.
adjust sweetener to taste. Going for that dirty dangles commercial sweet here with 1% SS.
This recipe was featured on DEVELOPED LIVE: Blind Remix Ep.2. Full recipe notes at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6lbDGKduU8 . Our goal was to improve upon the original and try to come as close as we could. We let this steep for about a week to determine if it was ready to be released and we think that it is. After revisiting the original and also hearing from the viewers, we determined that there was a possible banana note in the original. So, we made another version utilizing this recipe but adding TPA Banana Cream at 1%. So if that's what you taste in the original, by all means add that flavoring.

A buttery flaky cronut with ooey gooey caramel cinnamon for this weeks episode of Mixin Vixens
WF apple-cin strudel adds pastry and cinnamon notes as well as light apple note which pairs well with pear. Croissant adds that note. Glazed donut at a low percentage adds mainly glaze (which goes with the LA cream cheese icing for the filling) and a light donut note. LA Cream cheese icing gives a cream cheese note. Marshmallow vanilla adds nice vanilla note and body.
