Tastes like a moonpie ice cream sandwich but you replaced the marshmallow with vanilla ice cream.
I threw this together for my husband's pod and it actually came out pretty well. The chocolate isnt quite as pronounced and the graham just kind of makes the ice cream seem like they used a heavier cream but it's tasty either way.
For him I used some of the precious lb lava cake v1 but I can see v2 working in it's place because its just to bend the graham a bit into a chocolate graham direction.
Mixers Club April Submission
Unknown to Kitu5, I was assigned to make something from our common flavors.
"Flavor: TPA Mocha (i have a metric f**ton of this...i'd like to use it)
Bonus brownie points if you can also use OoO Vanilla Frosting, cos also have a shtton of this.
Eh, either some decadent frilly coffee bullsh*t, Something nifty and dessert-like...or mebbe sneak in a hint of tobacco? Just something that'll finally give me an excuse to start killing the hell outta this that's yummy."
Unfortunately, I don't own TPA Mocha yet so my only option was the latter while keeping in mind that one could add Mocha later on to end up with something similar to a tiramisu. Or vape it on it's own.
Update: After Kitus' review I decided to add the agreed upon 1% tpa mocha. Enjoy!
Paw Paw Pie (Dismal Pie)
Paw Paws are a strange sort of fruit called a custard apple. It works wonderfully as a non-descript soft tropical flavor. It also makes great desserts (although I've seen it paired with fish before). It's creamy with a raw/ earthy sweet flavor. This is not a pastry sort of pie but more like a fruity custard pie in a graham cracker crust that was hand pressed with butter and sugar into the pan.
It's the wrong time of year for this fruit that naturally grows in the American Applachia as it's far too DISMAL outside ;).
VT Paw paw is nearly spot on for a real paw paw but far too soft so in order to bring it forward and make it a richer flavor over the creamy bit of the pie I brought in it's incomplete cousins to bolster it: Flv mango and wf cherimoya. The mango is sweet and bright whereas the cherimoya brings the rind and edge of the fruit with a slight bit of pineapple sweetness. To keep the smooth creamy flavor/texture a touch of flv vanilla pudding was used.
The crust is mostly flv graham cracker for the crust with a tiny bit of TPA CC (graham crust) that ties it in with the paw paw rather than sitting completely separate from the rest of the pie.
When used at 4% NF Almond is a thick cooked cherry, very realistic too.
SA VCN does all of the heavy lifting for the custard all by itself.
Simple and delicious.
Update: so my bad, I dumped the 2 testers together to create this and its been pointed out to me that these % should have been cut in half. I'm altering the recipe now to reflect the change.
Crap! You're late because you got caught up enjoying this sweet and delicious crepe filled with smooth buttercream with apple chunks and crushed almonds, topped with a gooey spiced amaretto sauce. Still have to get to that AA meeting though!
So I've had this sitting around awhile and it seems to have gotten a bit harsh even though it was smooth to start with. I am trying to work out of it's the apple, the cinnamons or just my change in hardware.
Update 2: lowered the fuji, marzipan and crepe. Much smoother now.
Made for Mixers' Club Feb 2020
Take the best parts of existing recipes to create something new.
Green Bastard (parts) + Panther Blood (parts) + Bert's Soda Base (whole)
I started by simply trying to take half of 2 recipes (the first 2) and make it work but it was too much fruit and nothing else. It needed something more. Green Blood didn't work by itself even after tinkering the harshness of the blackberry and grapes down.
This is where I tried out a few bases for it to settle on top of with the soda taking me by surprise. It's not a berry-sprite as I was expecting given the ingredients.
I hope that this too takes you pleasantly by surprise, as true love often does.
[Btw, my ws23 is 30% in pg]
Strawberries and cream
I have come a long way in the past 6 months as a mixer and felt it was time to revisit the profile. Fresh ideas and a better stash.
(To anyone who suffered my old strawberry delight recipe, this is my apology)
To be begin with, I made a 10% dilution of FLV Alpine Strawberry with pg. Added 0.1g of that 10% dilution which equals out to 0.01% of actual flavor into my 10ml tester.
4% tfa strawberry ripe really fills in the rest of the strawberry notes. It's also still my single favorite strawberry.
Now, as for the cream and body, I went with a 1:1 FLV Cream and Marshmallow Vanilla which is good by itself but I found that it needed a bit of heaviness. Something to fill in the bottom. Custard really brought the more pudding-like cream that I really wanted for this.
Time: To be honest, after mixing this up I forgot about it on the shelf. I finally remembered 12 days later. Protip: always write the date it was mixed up on the bottle because otherwise I wouldn't have known how long it had been there.
