She has an amazing YouTube channel, Ro: I’m gonna put links down below so you should go check it out and say hi to her Ro: And today, we are gonna be making some Halloween treats, because Ro: it is right around the corner! Ro: To get in the spirit this year, I have been playing the cute little Ro: Halloween themed RPG Game, Costume Quest 2 So today we are gonna be Ro: making Frost Bites, Bone-Bones, kinda like bonbons but it’s like a little play Ro: on words because they have little bones in it And some Rice Creepies! Both: Let’s get started! Ro: Because we are gonna be making so many treats today from scratch, I’m just Ro: gonna be showing you how to make them one by one Ro: We are gonna be making Frost Bites First

Ro: The things you will need, will be: 2 cups of white melting chocolate, Ro: a bunch of candy canes, we are gonna crush them up to make about Ro: 1/2 a cup 1/2 a teaspoon of peppermint oil, and a few drops of oil based Ro: Blue food coloring Remember, you want them to be oil based because we are gonna Ro: be dying chocolate You will also need… Eva: A finger mold Ro: Mmmmmm! Eva: Some zip lock baggies, and a few hammers

Both: Let’s put it all together! Ro: The first thing that we’re gonna do is we’re gonna unwrap all of our Ro: little candy canes, place them in the plastic baggie, and then crush ‘em up Ro: with our hammers! Ro: Lets smash some candy canes! Eva: Let’s do it! Ro: OK! Oh jeez! Ro: And look at those! Ro: Da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da, da-da-da-da-da-da! Ro: All of our candy canes are crushed up Boom! Teamwork! Eva: Wooo! Ro: We did it! Ro: Now we are gonna take our candy cane and the rest of our ingredients Ro: over to the stove Ro: Turn your stove on to medium heat Melt the white chocolate using the Ro: double boiler method You just have a bowl on top, with a little bit of water Ro: in the pan below

And as it’s heating up it will heat your bowl Ro: Once melted, we’re gonna add our peppermint oil, then add a few drops of Ro: our blue food coloring oil, and mix together until you reach a desired color Ro: Now turn off the stove heat and stir in the crushed candy cane Ro: We just took our peppermint bark mixture off the stove and I just Ro: poured it into a little bowl to make it a little bit more manageable Ro: And I love this recipe because, it’s just like Holiday Bark

I don’t know Ro: if you guys have ever had holiday bark, have you had holiday bark? Eva: Mmmm! It’s so good! Ro: Yes! It’s just like chocolate with a bunch of crushed Ro: peppermint, so it’s taking a really classic recipe, and then making Ro: it creepy! Fwah-wah-wah-wah-wah! Alright Ro: So what you’re gonna do is take your spoon and you’re gonna take a little Ro: scoop, and, we’re just gonna pour it into the trays Ro: You’re gonna fill ‘em up to the very tippy top, and you’re gonna do this Ro: to all of your molds Eva: Now that we’ve filled our molds and we’re just gonna put them in the refrigerator Eva: for about 20-30 minutes to set Ro: Yep! And while those are setting, we are gonna make our next creepy treat! Ro: Now that our Frost Bites are in the fridge, we are gonna be making Ro: some Creepy Bone-Bones! Which are basically a play on words, they’re coconut Ro: bonbons, but they have little bones sticking out of them, so they’re… Eva: So cute! Ro: Super Halloween-y! Ro: The things you will need, will be: 3 cups of powdered sugar, but we might need Ro: a little bit more in the future, so just have a little extra handy

Ro: 2 cups of flake coconut, 1 cup of sweetened condensed milk, 1/2 a stick Ro: of butter And then for decoration, we’re gonna be needing light green, Ro: dark green, and purple candy melts You’ll also need Eva: A mixer, a mixing bowl, a bone mold, some ice cream scoops and a baking tray Eva: with some wax paper Also, some mini cupcake liners Ro: That’s right! Now let’s put… Both: All together! Ro: The first thing that we’re gonna do is we’re gonna put together our butter, Ro: condensed milk, and powdered sugar into our mixing bowl, Ro: until it is well combined

Ro: Eva I’m gonna have you work the mixer Eva: I’m excited! Ro: So you get ready, I’m gonna put in the butter, it’s a little messy, but Ro: you’re gonna want it to be room temperature It’s really important that Ro: it’s soft so that it blends well, you don’t want it to come right out Ro: of the refrigerator And now our condensed milk Ooooooooooh! Ro: Oooooooh! Eva: That was creepy enough, I think we should just stop here! Ro: Powdered sugar

Ooooh! Ooooh! Eva: Oooh! Ro: Oooh! A little ghosty dust cloud in here! Ro: I’ll hold the bowl, you mix Ro: You guys didn’t know I had a fog machine on set did you? Ro: Boom! Look at that, well mixed, now we’re gonna add our coconut flakes and Ro: mix it up one more time Just a little bit Eva: So we just finished mixing it up, and uh, what are we doing now Ro? Ro: We are gonna take our little ice cream scoops, take one big scoop, and then place it Ro: over here on top of the wax paper Eva: Once you’ve got ‘em all scooped out, we’re gonna put them in the fridge Eva: for about an hour to chill

Ro: Yep, and while they are chilling Ro: we are gonna make some little decorations! Ro: Our coconut bonbons are chilling in the fridge and now we are gonna make some Ro: bones to decorate Here I have melted some of our green candy melts, it’s Ro: half dark green and half light green, to make this color I put it into a Ro: plastic baggie and we’re just gonna cut a little opening at the top Ro: And then we are gonna fill our bones about 1/2 way full Ro: Once these are filled you can give them a few taps, boop-boop-boop-boop! Ro: And that will make the candy melts lay flat

And then you’re gonna pop Ro: these in the freezer for about 10 minutes to chill And we’re gonna Ro: get out our bonbons Eva: Mmmm! Ro: And give ‘em a dip Ro: We just took the coconut bonbons out of the fridge and they’re right here Ro: and they’re a little bit colder, so we were able to re-roll them Ro: To make them more of a circular shape, and over here, I’ve just heated Ro: up our purple candy melts

Ro: Eva told me she’s never been to The Melting Pot! Eva: I’ve never even done fondue ever! Ro: This is so exciting! OK, so at The Melting Pot you have these cute little Ro: fondue sticks Eva: Mmmhmm Ro: And then you poke your little food, and then Ro: you come over here and you’re gonna dip it in your chocolate or whatever Ro: thing you want to coat it with Let the excess candy drip off, and then go back over to the wax paper, whoap! Ro: Bone-bonbon! Now you’re gonna do this to the rest of your bonbons! Ro: Now we’re gonna add the final decoration step, this is my favorite! Ro: OK, so we got our little green bones from earlier, and they have completely Ro: chilled and set, and you’re just gonna pop ‘em out Ro: And now, you’re gonna take a serrated knife and you’re just gonna cut it

Ro: I’m doing it at a little bit at an angle so that they’ll sit on top Ro: of the bonbon a little funny Ro: And you’re gonna take a little bit of melted green candy melts that Ro: we saved from earlier and you’re just gonna pipe a little at the end and then Ro: stick ‘em on the top Ro: And you’re gonna have to hold it for a little bit, maybe 20 seconds, Ro: 30 seconds It’s kind of like putting together gingerbread houses Ro: You want to wait until the chocolate has set

Ro: Now, we’re gonna put them in these little liners, how cute are these! Ro: Oh my gosh! Eva: That is so cute! Ro: And you can give them to your friends Ro: Look at those! Ro: Shake your bonbon, shake your bonbon! Ro: We just finished our Coconut Bone-Bones! And now we are gonna make our last Ro: creepy treat, we are gonna be making Rice Creepies! Ro: Hwah-hwah-hwah! They’re gonna look like these little bats from the game Ro: So the things you will need, will be: 6 cups of Rice Krispies Cereal, Ro: 10 ounces of mini-marshmallows, which is about 1 bag 3 tablespoons Ro: of butter, brown and green food coloring dye, and some orange jelly beans Ro: You will also need… Eva: Some cooking spray

Ro: Mmmhmmm Eva: A 9×13 glass pan, black candy melts, a bat shaped cookie cutter and Eva: some white frosting that we placed in a decorating bag Ro: Yum! Now let’s, Both: Put it all together! Ro: Best evil Witch laugh on three, one, two, three! Both: Ah-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha! Ro: The first thing that we’re gonna do is take our Rice Krispies, marshmallows, Ro: butter and food coloring over to the stove Ro: Turn the stove to medium heat and in a large pot you’re gonna add the butter Ro: and stir it around until completely melted Then you’re gonna add your Ro: marshmallows and stir again until completely melted

I’m using Ro: a wooden spoon, just be careful because this mixture gets really hot! Ro: Once the marshmallows have completely melted, we’re gonna add our food Ro: coloring I’m gonna add 3 drops of green and 1 drop of brown Ro: Mix them together until you get that creepy green color and then remove Ro: your large pot from the stove I’m just placing it on the counter Ro: Here we’re gonna add our Rice Krispies to the pot and fold them together Ro: until they are well combined, and head back over to our baking station

Ro: We just took the Rice Krispies off the stove, they’re nice and hot, Eva: Now we’re gonna spray the pan with our baking spray so they don’t stick Ro: Give it a good spray, a little shake, a little spray, just like hair spray Ro: Easy to use Eva: Oooh! Ro: The pot is hot! So be careful, don’t burn yourself! Ro: I’m gonna hold the pot, you scoop it in there, it’s super sticky! Eva: Ooooh! Ro: here’s my sneaky little trick, you’re gonna take a piece of wax paper Eva: Mmmhmmm

Ro: Place it on top Eva: OK Ro: And then we’re gonna pack Ro: it down Eva: OK, oooh! That feels nice! Ro: So you can spread ‘em all around Ro: evenly and make it flat Ro: Eva, remove the wax paper slowly! Eva: Oooooh! Ro: There you are, there you are! Eva: Alright, so our Rice Krispies are ready and now we’re just gonna set these aside to cool Eva: for about 30 minutes to an hour

Ro: Mmmhmm, and while they are cooling Ro: we’re gonna make some fun decorations! Ro: While our Rice Krispies are setting, we are gonna make some decorations Ro: using this little template I made this in photoshop, and I’ll put a link Ro: down below if you want to download this template, or feel free to make Ro: your own But, you’re just gonna print it off, and then right here, Ro: Eva and I have got these two little boards, you can use any surface you’d like, Ro: And you’re gonna take your template, put it underneath a piece of wax paper, Ro: and then we’ve taped them down at the top and the bottom so that they won’t Ro: go anywhere Here we’ve got two little baggies with the black candy melts, Ro: we’ve melted them, and for a little bit more control we’ve added a number Ro: 2 tip here at the end You don’t need this, it’s totally optional

Ro: I just like to have a little bit more control because I’m messy Ro: And now we’re just gonna trace out our little shapes, these are gonna Ro: be the mouths of the bat Ro: Once we’re done with these we’re gonna set them off to the side and we’re Ro: gonna take our Rice Krispies and cut out little bat shapes, Ro: with a cute little cookie cutter! Eva: OK, so we have our Rice Krispies and we’re just gonna plop them onto Eva: the cutting board Ro: Alright, give it a flip Both: Wooooooo! Ro: We’re in business, we’re in business! Ro: Take your little bat cookie cutter, and we're gonna cut out a bunch of bat shapes, you Ro: can make as many as you’d like

Ro: The first thing that you’re gonna do is take your little mouths that we made Ro: earlier And then we've got a little bit of melted black candy melts, we’re gonna add a little to Ro: the back, and then stick him right on the front Ro: And now you’re gonna take some Jelly Beans, and I like to cut ‘em in half Ro: to make the two little eyeballs, take a dab of the candy melts, put it on Ro: the back, stick on your two eyeballs You’re gonna take your little candy melts Ro: And we’re just gonna pipe on some little eyebrows, and make two little Ro: eyeballs on top of the jelly bean Ro: Now, we’re gonna cut up a bunch of jelly beans, I like to use the ends of the Ro: jelly bean, and you’re just gonna cut the very tip of your jelly bean

Ro: Take these little guys and I’m just gonna stick a couple onto each side, Ro: the left and the right Eva: So now we’re gonna take our white frosting and put some teeth on them Ro: Errrr!
