I made this as a tribute to the guys @ Developed the Real Three Musketeers!
Trying my hand at a classic. The Three Musketeers candy bar. The original is a soft fluffy chocolate nougat surrounded my rich Milk Chocolate how hard could it be? Shows how much I know. 20 versions later to get the flavors right.
I Started with the Nougat. Inw Nougat to be exact . And to give the nougat that fluffy chocolate taste I decieded to use VTA Chocolate Mousse because its a fluffy chocolate. And to fluff it up even more I went with FA Marshmallow because it's fluffy and has some body to it. Then for my favorite part the chocolate coating. Gremberry Farms Chocolate Overload is the best chocolate that I have but feel free to use Cap Double Chocolate V2 or another chocolate of your choice. The FA Cream Fresh helps to soften the chocolate into a milk chocolate. And then add some FLV Sweetness and its done. Let it steep a few days for everything to settle.
The Classic American sandwich from our childhood. Peanut Butter and Strawberry Jam on white bread.
Being I have never been a fan of grape jam so I tried for a Strawberry Jam.
Developed started this journey with their episode of We hate Goober Grape were they attempted a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. And now with the creation of Forment's Gruber Grape recipe and his addition of FW Hazelnut (it's what I've been missing all this time) to assist the DX Peanut Butter.
I started this with the idea that VT Croissant is a really good light bread note. And with the addition of Cap Golden Butter and VTA Pudding Base to increase that bread note and crust we get a great sandwich bread.
Then on to the Peanut butter and Strawberry Jam. Of course Dx Peanut Butter is my peanut butter of choice. Forment's use of FW Hazelnut increases the lifespan of Dx Peanut Butter and I used VTA Peanut for a peanut boost. Any other peanut would work also. Now for the Strawberry Jam I could have gone with a good mix of strawberries and something like Vt Jam it, but being a fan boy of VTA I love VTA Strawberry Jam but it does need back up to make it more jammy. So I used WF Strawberry Gummy Candy to increase the syrupy strawberry jam. Of course sweetener is optional.
Hazelnut Millefeuilles are a flaky rich coffee infused cookie filled with a hazelnut cream.
This starts with the two main cookies the Crispy Coffee and the Crispy Wafer with a boost of FA Cookie for extra mouth feel. Then on to the Hazelnut cream. VTA Sweet Cream and Vanilla Cream make for a delicious combo with the added creaminess of FW Hazelnut then a boost of hazelnut flavor from TPA DX Hazelnut and WF Roasted Hazelnut. Sweetener is always optional but I feel it helps make the hazelnut pop.
This was my entry to the Developed summertime challenge. A creamy Pina Colada, I was able to create the original with a little advice from NaChef in the form of his recommendation of LB Coconut Milk. It really made a huge difference in the creaminess of the mix. During the airing of the the live show NaChef gave an awesome review of the recipe. Since that time I have messed with the profile several times. Including lowering the Coconut milk way down because after around a month of steeping it took over and ruined the mix. Also during the show NaChef mentioned that he likes to use MB Funky Pineapple with INW Pineapple and I have to agree with him, even though Cap Golden Pineapple was what I had at the time MB Funky Pineapple is a much better choice. I kept most of the original flavorings aside from MB Funky Pineapple and I dropped the Fa Menthol. I've had this recipe private on ELR since just after the challenge. And with Spring 2021 coming I figured I'd add it here for everyone to enjoy.
Good as a SNV but better after a few days.
This is my rendition of a breakfast crepe, I had once in a small diner in Georgia. A sweet crepe filled with a luxurious sweet whipped cream and peach compote.
Start with the WF Crepe because its a thin pancake, WF Angel Cake to give the pancake some extra body, originally I used WF Cannoli Shell for extra flavor to add a cooked aspect to the pancake, but it fell short. So, I switched to WF Brown Sugar Cookie, because the Brown sugar in the cookie works well with cooked peaches. Then add WF Bavarian Cream. To get the filling of the Crepe, I used WF Peach Pie & Cream which has a very light crust, light cream, and a great peach flavor. Also, I boosted the cream with WF Whipped Cream. I added a tiny amount of the WF Peach Gummy Candy but it definitely pack some punch. It helps keep the peaches from being overpowered.
