I tried a recipe for mint choc chip ice cream but it didn’t come out that great so I’m looking for ideas to improve it.
The recipe had a strong menthol taste but I couldn’t taste much chocolate or mint. Also I don’t really like menthol.
I have to admit I didn’t steep it at all as it’s too impractical at this stage as I am only making 5ml tester batches so far so I just made do with giving it a good shake.
The recipe called for 4.5% chocolate fudge brownie (CAP), 4.5% creme de menthe (TFA) and 5% vanilla bean ice cream (CAP) plus 1% sweetener.
I’m thinking I might try a little Capella peppermint, some stronger chocolate and drop the vanilla down to 2%.
I used to buy a ready made strong mint liquid from Hangsen that didn’t taste of menthol but gave my other eliquids a nice freshness which I think is better for an ice cream flavour than anything with menthol.
@MarylinC this is where I’d start I’d make my chocolate icecream base and once i was happy with that I’d add candy cane 0.2% 0.4% 0.5% and so on in till i find the sweet spot I’d also add bit of powdered sugar by one on one you probably thinking candy cane yuck but people underestimate the flavour just start low
That sounds like a great idea. I’ll check out the recipes to see which flavours and brands people seem to prefer for chocolate ice cream then I’ll look for a good Candy Cane and also a good peppermint and give those a try.
I dont play with those flavors any longer, @MarylinC…
but you can click on them to read up more… like the brownie:
This is why @anon28032772 was saying to try them all as a solo first… find where you… not anyone else… enjoys it… then work on combining. It will give you a better vape mix that you yourself will find better made.
I know you said you do not want to get into drippers… that is fine…
you can look at the average usage and try maybe half the suggested amount used, and work up… in solo flavors in your tank… Its called SFT… and keep your notes.
Your mouth and body changes and so will the flavors made from the companies over time, and this way you can keep track of everything… if you keep your notes… doesn’t matter if you want 1 juice or 10… but knowing how to do it, is half the battle
Hopefully someone will pipe up with better reply on that particular recipe…
