Tasty flan, melty caramel, thick mouthfeel. That's all you need to know.
I went exclusively with VTA concentrates for this one, because they have both great cremes and caramels that work quite well when mixed together.
Creme Brulle, Creme Caramel and Warm Custard combined give a nice custard with good mouthfeel, subtle vanilla notes and less subtle sticky caramel notes. Adding Sweet Cream gives an even creamier and full mouthfeel.
The caramel notes from the aformentioned concentrates are not enough to create a caramel topping that sticks to the top of the mouth, so English Toffee and Honeycomb are added to achieve this.
Super Sweet makes it even yummier, don't omit it!
Needs 4-5 days of steeping.
Hope you like it! Would love to hear some constructive feedback from you all!
First of all, I want to address the first 2 bad reviews, they were made just a couple of hours after I posted this recipe which has a 7 day steep time. The first out of them, is not about the recipe, but targeted on me as a person by someone who doesn't like me personally and thought that by putting a one star review on this recipe he will punish me or something. He says that it is bad that I made recipe on a flavor profile that he already recently attempted too. This is not a copy of anyone's work, I worked really hard to make a cookie recipe exactly the way I personally wanted it. If you didn't like the recipe, low rating reviews are more than welcome, but please leave me constructive feedback so I can become better. Thank you for reading this paragraph, even though I did not enjoy very much writing it.
Back to the description:
I know this recipe seems a little bit too complicated for such a simple profile, but this is my take on a well baked, buttery on the inside, crunchy on the outside cookie.
FA Cookie + FA Meringue + VT Biscuit Base + FLV Biscotti is a great start when making a well baked cookie. More than enough to provide with the required cookie notes and crunchy feeling, but they can get harsh and lack the heavy buttery mouthfeel needed.
TPA Peanut Butter is added to bring a different dimension to the crunchiness.
Trying not to create a cookies and cream, VT Pudding Base works wonders bridging the crunchiness of the cookie layer with the mouthfeel and creaminess of the rest of the ingredients.
VT Devon Cream is added as it is a soft buttery cream, taking away some of the harshness of the cookies, and VT Butter Toffee Base brings all the heavy buttery goodness this recipe lacked, along with some caramel notes that pair nicely.
Finally the sweetness part is addressed using just a touch of VT Golden Syrup and a bit more than a touch of FLV Milk & Honey to bring out a dark, brown sugar like sweetness from inside the cookie. CAP Super Sweet is needed here to help with sticking all these flavors to the mouth while vaping, and I really think that a cookie profile needs a fair amount of sweetener.
Cream heavy cheesecake, with a buttery crumbly crust and dragonfruit pieces on top! This is not a fruity vape, it's more of a full cheesecake with just a little fruit to make it more interesting!
I've seen people using FA Dragonfruit on a higher percentage than what I use on this recipe, but I find it to be overpowering over everything else when you use it higher, making it hard to balance it when you want to create a fruity vibrant mix, making it difficult to mix it with other fruits. But with all the problems it can create, it is a really realistic and tasty dragonfruit.
Chocolate Clusters where my favorite breakfast cereal, but since I am still going strong on my new year's resolution of no sugar in 2019 I tried my best to make a juice that tastes like them.
Needs some steep to get extra yummy, so please be patient.
Bavarian Cream TPA + Milk FA + Meringue FA + Irish Cream FA create thick creamy milk, with very slight cocoa/chocolate notes, just like the milk that cocoa cereal have just been dumped on.
Breakfast Cereals FA + Cocoa Rounds TPA + Peanut Butter Cup FW gets you cereal that are coated on both cocoa and chocolate!
Hazelnut FW tastes exactly like the white nut clusters that this brand of cereal uses.
Don't skip the Super Sweet, you can even get it higher if you have a sweet tooth!
Apple crumble! The apple is not subtle, the cinnamon is not overwhelming, and the crumbly graham is on point :) Hope you enjoy it!
Apple Fuji FA + Pair of Pears INW make a nice melty apple, Two Apples INW is added as a fruity apple sweetener. Two Apples INW can work on many fruit mixes as a sweetener, if you keep below 0.5 the apple taste won't be overwhelming (give it a go in pineapple mixes!). The apple in this recipe is not "baked", but sweet and melty.
Cheesecake (GC) TPA + Biscuit Base VTA + Graham Cracker FW create a crumbly, slightly buttery graham cracker base.
Bavarian Cream TPA + Vanilla Bean Gelato TPA are added for mouthfeel, fluffiness, and to blend everything together.
Cinnamon Ceylon FA is a bakery cinnamon, not spicy at low percentages. Can be omitted if you don't want the cinnamon in here. I wouldn't replace it with a hot and spicy cinnamon in this mix.
Let it steep a bit, the crackers used here need some time to develop the full flavor and mouthfeel.
Butterscotch heavy top notes over a hazelnut infused pudding. what's not to like?
Creamy Hazelnut FW + Pudding Base VTA + Custard INW create a nice and thick hazelnut pudding.
Butterscotch Ripple FW + Caramel (Salted) FW create a nice, sweet and thick sweet butterscotch.
Graham Cracker (Clear) TPA is there, since it brings support both to the caramel top notes and the bready cream body of the recipe.
The slow steeper in here is the Creamy Hazelnut, which can dominate the recipe in the first days. For a balanced e-juice steep for 10-12 days, but give it a try a lot earlier if you can handle the hazelnut :)
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Raspberry INW is Raspberry 'Malina' Inawera, not Raspberry Wera Garden!
Biscuit INW, Cheesecake (Graham Crust) TPA, Cookie FA and Butter FA create a buttery and crumbly tart base. A little Almond FA is added to round the crunchiness of Cookie FA.
Raspberry (Sweet) TPA is the main raspberry here, with a touch of Berryl FA and Raspberry (Malina) INW added to make it a little more realistic, tart and sweet.
Custard FA is one of the best creams to add in most fruity vapes, because the lemony notes blend great with sour/tart fruits. Custard Premium FA is added to enhance the buttery feel a little more, and Mississipi INW because it's a great bridge between raspberries and biscuits/cookies.
The Super Sweet here is kinda needed, don't omit it if possible.
Needs some days of steep, for the butter to calm down.
