Chocolate eLiquid DIY Recipes
For me, nothing is quite as satisfying as a clean and pure bite into a plain milk chocolate candy bar. A Hershey’s chocolate bar is my absolute favorite, because it’s simple and creamy and sweet. However, trying to find that same happiness in a vape juice flavor is extremely tricky. I’ve had the pleasure of trying a few chocolate flavored e-liquids over the years, ones that tasted and smelled like the real thing. Truffleberry by The Milkman Delights and Half Vaped by Banger eLiquid were my personal favorites, but you can’t even find those flavors anymore. Instead of lamenting their loss, now you can make your own chocolate flavored e-liquid! I did some research on some of the most beloved chocolate DIY recipes out there, and this article is devoted to several recipes that looked absolutely scrumptious. Let’s dive right in and see what these delightful chocolate e-liquids have to offer!
GATHER ALL YOUR INGREDIENTS
Before we get to those delightful chocolate e-liquid goodies, I always like to offer a recap on how to read the recipes, where to get the ingredients, and basic DIY e-liquid information. If you’ve been making e-liquid long enough or you’re one of our readers who’ve read my previous DIY e-liquid articles, you already know the tricks of the trade. But for newbies and intermediate mixologists, this information might serve as a good refresher. Feel free to skip down to the actual recipes! We’ll start out with where you can find the actual e-liquid recipes.
A lot of times, a simple google search can yield results of several websites to get all sorts of delicious sounding e-liquid recipes (my favorite is E-Liquid Recipes and All The Flavors). The problem with that is the sheer volume of recipes available can get overwhelming VERY quickly. Unless you have a certain flavor profile in mind, you can easily get distracted or you might decide that making your own e-liquid is too much work. I’ve tried to make that task a little easier buy posting up a few recipes each week. Last week was First Day of Autumn flavors, the week before that was End of Summer flavors, and this week is Chocolate Flavors. Are you noticing a theme yet?
Once you do find a recipe, you realize that there are a ton of things that you’ll need to buy first. You’ll want to make sure you have mixing tools (e-liquid mixers, beakers, cylinders, and bottles) vegetable glycerin (VG), propylene glycol (PG), and nicotine if you like a bit of a throat hit in your vape juice. You can get all these from pretty much any vape supplier but I prefer to use Liquid Nicotine Wholesalers for all my DIY supplies, except the flavoring. While Liquid Nicotine Wholesalers does offer flavoring, most of these recipes call for very specific flavors made by specific brand names. These specific flavorings are marked with abbreviations that will become more familiar as you go along, but some of the most popular ones are as follows: CAP, FLV, SA, PUR, and etc. You can find these flavors and many others on the The Perfumer’s Apprentice website.
READING & CUSTOMIZING E-LIQUID RECIPES
Once you’ve purchased all of the necessary tools and ingredients, you can officially start mixing your e-liquids! As I mentioned before, there are several websites you can use to get DIY e-liquid recipes, but I prefer E-Liquid Recipes for their extremely handy customization tool. I’ve noticed that a lot of the recipes use a different nicotine strength than I prefer or a smaller e-juice amount than I normally go through. A simple click on the wrench icon immediately fixes this problem and allows me to experiment without wondering if I did the right calculation. E-Liquid Recipes also allows me to search for something extremely custom. For example, I wanted to search for a variety of chocolate candy recipes, but tailored to specific types of chocolate. Instead of looking for German chocolate cake or chocolate rice pudding, I was able to find recipes like Hershey chocolate cream pie and Heath bar e-liquid (which I’ll upload shortly).
I also liked how the E-liquids recipe has the option to use grams or drops in the e-liquid creation. Unless you have a kitchen scale, making a recipe using drops might be a little easier when you’re first getting started. Just make sure you don’t lose count halfway through! You can opt for a kitchen scale if you know you’ll be making these recipes somewhat frequently.
For the actual reading of the e-liquid recipe, you may have to look up some of the flavor abbreviation. Some of the most common ones are FLV for Flavorah, PUR for Purlium, CAP for Capella, and SA for Solubearome. Keep in mind that not all of the flavorings are available on the same site, so you may need to make purchases on different sites to get all the flavorings in one place.
Lastly, all e-liquid should be left to steep before loading it up in your tank. Not all the recipes I upload will have a recommended steep time. A general rule of thumb is at least a week, unless someone specifies otherwise in the comments. The longer you leave it, the better the flavor. You can experiment with different steep times to figure out your preferred flavors. And that sums up our recap of the ingredients you’ll need and how to read the recipes, so let’s check out the actual recipes now!
DIY E-LIQUID RECIPES
This is by far my favorite part of the article because I get to finally share the recipes I found! We’ll start off with my all-time favorite candy bar: Snickers! There are quite a few Snickers bar recipes available, but this was the only one that had four members rate and approve this as a spot-on match. This particular recipe only uses 1.5 mg of nicotine, and makes about 15mL of e-liquid, so consider it more of a trial size. As a 60/40 VG/PG blend, this is very close to the popular 70/30 blend. If you like it, you can always edit the portions to be higher nicotine, different VG/PG ratio, or a greater quantity size. But check out the mouthwatering ingredient list! Caramel, nougat, peanuts, and milk chocolate, just like the real thing!
Next, I found my second favorite chocolate candy: Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Again, there were quite a few of these, ranging from the cereal to the candy with a touch of tobacco. I selected this one because of the simple ingredient list and the fact that two members voted this as 5-stars. This recipe uses a 70/30 VG/PG ratio, has a 3mg nicotine content, and yields 60mL of e-liquid. With only three flavors, this would be an excellent starter e-liquid for beginners and avid chocolate candy lovers.
Lastly, I have a special treat for all the Hershey lovers. In college, we weren’t allowed to have ovens, hot plates, or stoves in our dorms, so we were stuck with no-bake desserts. A microwave was our only friend, and around Christmastime, we craved the home-baked goodness of our families. One such treat was called the no-bake hershey chocolate cream pie, a name that makes my mouth water to this day. In trying to find a Hershey’s chocolate bar recipe, I stumbled across this little gem. In the spirit of nostalgic memories, I decided to save this recipe for last. It’s quite a lengthy flavor list, with seven different flavors from some unheard of brands (MolinBerry and INAWERA were new to me). But there were several comments praising this flavor and a very lengthy description, so if any of you do end up making this flavor, you’ve got to let me know how you like it! It does end up being a 70/30 VG/PG ratio with a 0mg nicotine rating, but since it’s a 30mL, you can customize this recipe quite a bit in terms of nicotine and quantity.
I hoped you liked this little collection of chocolate treats for DIY e-liquids! Some of these have e-liquid flavorings you’d never think of, but that’s what is so fascinating about the world of DIY e-liquids: someone’s already thought of it, made it, and improved it. All you have to do is make it yourself! Obviously there are so many other chocolate flavors, but we’ll settle with three for now and perhaps revisit it around Halloween time, when all the candy flavors come out to play in our trick-or-treat buckets! For now, it’s been fun, but it’s the end of the article. Hopefully you’ll try some of these and discover new ways to make your taste buds dance with delight!
