  • Hey guys it’s Ro! Halloween is my absolute favorite holiday!

  • I have been going all out this year! So today we are gonna be making some DIY

  • Halloween Themed and Spooky Treats! So let’s get started!

  • The first thing that were gonna be making are these simple and delicious

  • Candy Corn Cookies. And even if you aren’t the biggest fan of candy corn,

  • I would give these cookies a try, theyre really good!

  • The things you will need, will be: 2 cups of flour, 3/4 cup of brown sugar,

  • 1 cup of white chocolate chips, a bunch of candy corn, 2 tablespoons of

  • cream, 1 stick of unsalted butter, 1 egg, 1/4 cup of sugar, a tablespoon of

  • vanilla extract, a teaspoon of baking soda, a pinch of salt, 2 teaspoons

  • of corn starch and a cookie scoop!

  • The first thing that were gonna do in a big mixing bowl, we are gonna cream

  • our butter. Mix it together until it’s light and fluffy.

  • Now youre gonna pour in the regular sugar and your brown sugar, and then

  • were gonna cream it together!

  • Now were gonna add one egg, the whole egg, and our vanilla.

  • Give it another mix!

  • Now were gonna add our dry ingredients, were gonna add the flower,

  • corn starch, a pinch of salt, baking soda!

  • Now were gonna mix it up one last time until it’s evenly combined and

  • were gonna slowly add our cream while were mixing.

  • Lastly were gonna add our white chocolate chips to the mixture, and, you can

  • mix these together with a spatula, or I’m gonna do a really quick mix

  • with the hand mixer.

  • Now that weve got our dough were gonna scoop it out and place it on our pan,

  • I’ve lined it with a piece of parchment paper so that it doesn’t stick.

  • So you just take your little scoop like this and go doo-doo!

  • Weve got all of our cookies scooped into the pan and now were gonna

  • cover them with saran wrap, and popem in the fridge for about 2 hours.

  • Once the cookie dough balls have chilled, I like to transfer them to another

  • baking sheet lined with parchment paper to bake. I like to bake 6 at a time, so I’m gonna take 6 little

  • balls, transfer them over, leave a couple inches in between each one of them

  • because they will expand. And, with your palm, press down flat.

  • And, don’t worry about the Candy Corn, I have not forgotten!

  • What were gonna do is we're gonna pop our cookies into the oven at 350 degrees, bake for about

  • 6 minutes and be careful because the baking sheet is still super hot!

  • What were gonna do now is place a few candy corns right on top, near the middle,

  • try not to have them hanging over the sides because they will melt!

  • Once we have all our Candy Corn in the cookies were gonna pop these

  • back in the oven for 4 minutes. Then take your cookies out of the oven,

  • give them plenty of time to cool on the pan and then place them onto

  • a display plate! Or take a bite for yourself!

  • Mmmmmmm! Mmmm-mmmm-mmmmm-mmmm!

  • The next thing that were gonna be making is this Jack-O-Lantern Bean Dip!

  • I love making chip dips for parties, because it’s just a fun appetizer that everybody

  • can enjoy! The things you will need will be: A bag of blue corn tortilla chips,

  • 1 packet of taco seasoning, 1 can of refried black beans, 1 can of black beans,

  • 1 stick of cream cheese, 1-1/2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese, 1 cup of

  • sour cream, 1 teaspoon of hot sauce, I’m using Crystal Louisiana because

  • that’s my favorite. 1/4 cup of chopped green onions, some olives and

  • 1 tablespoon of diced, pickled jalapeños!

  • The first thing that were gonna do, is in a big mixing bowl, were gonna

  • add our cream cheese, sour cream, our taco seasoning, our jalapeños,

  • hot sauce, oh I love you! Green onion, and our beans!

  • Now take your hand mixer and were gonna mix our dip together until

  • everything is evenly combined.

  • Boom! Delicious!

  • Now that we got our chip dip all mixed up, we are gonna pour it into our

  • serving dish, I’m just using a pie pan, I like this white one I had

  • lying around, I thought this would be really cute!

  • Now I’m gonna completely cover it with a layer of cheese, it’s gonna be our

  • top layer! I’m using Cheddar Cheese, because when it melts that nice orange

  • color is gonna look just like a pumpkin.

  • Once youve got your layer of cheese on top were gonna pop it in the oven

  • at 350 degrees and bake it for 20 minutes.

  • Dips in the oven and over here I’ve got some olives, a small cutting board

  • and a knife. And youre just gonna cut them into slices like this, for some little details, you won’t

  • need too many ofem. Were gonna use them to make the Jack-O-Lantern’s mouth.

  • Our dip’s fresh out of the oven, it’s baked! And now it’s time to decorate!

  • Take your chips, and youre gonna look for the flattest chip you can.

  • Like he’s a good one, this one not so good!

  • So these ones, I can have a snack. Oh!

  • Then were gonna stickem on here, to make a little face!

  • Then for the nose, you're gonna take another chip, and I'm just gonna break off the

  • end, so it’s a little bit smaller, and that is gonna be his nose!

  • Now were gonna use those olives we sliced earlier to make his little mouth.

  • I just like to go up and down, up and down, up and down!

  • And there you have it! A Jack-O-Lantern Bean Dip!

  • The next treat that were gonna be making are

  • Mini Peanut Covered Caramel Apples.

  • The things you will need, will be: 1-11 Ounce bag of caramels, a rolling pin,

  • peanuts, some apples, I’m using some granny smiths. Some mini cupcake liners, I

  • found these cute little polka dot ones at a local bake store, a small cookie scoop, or a

  • melon baller, a plastic zip-top bag, and some wooden skewers.

  • The first thing that were gonna do is crush up our peanuts.

  • So we take the peanuts, pour them in our plastic baggie, then youre gonna

  • take your rolling pin and roll over the top, to crushem up!

  • Next were gonna scoop our apples to make little apple balls, this is very

  • similar to melon balls if you guys have ever done that.

  • So you take your little scoop, and your apples, got some apples over here,

  • and you just scoop it in there, get a little ball! And then bewp! Oh!

  • Just gonna pat it dry with a paper towel to absorb some of the moisture,

  • and put it right here, boop!

  • Once you have as many apple balls as you want, were gonna put them into the fridge

  • and then were gonna melt our caramel! Or caramel?

  • Caramel, caramel! Tomato-Tomato!

  • I just melted the caramel, you can do this over the stove or in the microwave,

  • whatever you’d prefer. And now were gonna skew, dip and roll!

  • This is very easy, you're gonna take the little wooden skewer, and skew one of

  • these cute little apple balls, then youre gonna dip into the caramel,

  • let it completely cover. Then bring it up, let the excess caramel drip off.

  • Now youre just gonna place it in the middle of the peanuts and roll it around!

  • I’ve lined the baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper and sprayed it with

  • a little bit of cooking spray, so that the caramel won’t stick.

  • Huhhh! Oh my gah! So good!

  • Weve got all our little apples assembled and now I’m gonna popem

  • in the fridge for about 10 minutes to set.

  • Da-dew! Here are the candy apples that we made! As a final touch I put

  • them in these mini cupcake liners after they were done chilling in the

  • fridge, and then I just linedem all up on a cute little serving tray!

  • Now onto our last treat, which happens to be a Halloween Themed drink.

  • Wah-wah-wah-wah-wah-wah!

  • Next we are gonna be making Monster Mud Slides!

  • For these drinks were gonna be making 2 different versions, 1 non-alcoholic,

  • and the other one spirited. For the spirited version, the things

  • you will need, will be: 3 ounces of Vodka, 3 ounces of Bailey’s Irish Cream,

  • 3 ounces of Kahlua Coffee Liqeur, and 3 ounces of milk.

  • And then for the non alcoholic version, youre gonna need 1 cup of milk,

  • 2 big scoops of vanilla ice cream, 3/4 cup of heavy cream, 1/4 cup of

  • chocolate syrup, and, 1/4 cup of cold coffee.

  • And then to decorate both of these drinks, you will need: Some Reese’s Pieces

  • candy, Cool Whip, and some fun straws!

  • First were gonna make the spirited version of our Monster Mud Slide.

  • Over here I’ve got a blender and were gonna add 2 cups of ice into our blender.

  • And then were gonna pour in 3 ounces of each liquid here into our blender.

  • OK, so it’s gonna be two of these, because each one’s a ounce and uh, oh.

  • Oh geez! I am not a bartender, I am not a bartender! Oh my!

  • Ooooh! Feel the spirit! Oooh-hoo-hoo-hoo! That’s something isn’t it? OK.

  • We got all of our ingredients in here, were just gonna pop it on the

  • top, weve got your lid on, now blend it up!

  • Our drinks all mixed up now, so I’m gonna take it off of here.

  • And youre gonna take your chocolate syrup, and youre gonna line your

  • glasses with a little bit of chocolate syrup, this is very, very easy, you just

  • tilt it, like this, and then squeeze and rotate around.

  • Boop-boop-ba-doop!

  • Oooh! It just drips down, like a mud slide!

  • I let the glasses sit for about 20 seconds to let the chocolate drip down the

  • cup, and now were gonna fillem up!

  • Oooooh! Yummy yummy! Now we are gonna set these off to the side and

  • we are gonna make our non-alcoholic version, and then well decorate!

  • Now were gonna make our non-alcoholic Monster Mud Slide!

  • The first thing were gonna do is we're gonna scoop 2 big scoops of ice cream into

  • our blender. I’m a firm believer in big scoops of ice cream.

  • So if you get a little extra, that’s OK!

  • And then add your milk, your heavy cream. Ooooh! One of my favorites, coffee!

  • And chocolate syrup!

  • Look at this, doesn’t it look like emo Frankenstein Monster?

  • You just don’t understand Dad!

  • And leter rip!

  • Were all done mixing our mudslide, and, I just lined the glasses with

  • chocolate like I did before. Now let’s fillem up!

  • Time to decorate, this is my favorite part!

  • Over here I have a little plastic baggie with a coupler at the end for

  • more control. This is totally optional, you don’t need to do this.

  • And then over here I have the frozen whipped cream, really important,

  • you want to use the frozen stuff so it will hold shape.

  • So I’m just scooping it, woop! Into my little plastic baggie, over here, and then on the

  • top were gonna pipe, it looks like a ghost monster.

  • Alright, here we go, you go all the way around, doo-doo-doo-doo-doo!

  • Fill in the middle! Make the ghost! Boop!

  • And then were gonna put a little Reese’s Pieces in the front for his mouth,

  • and you can pick any eye color you want, I’m gonna do yellow.

  • And a little straw, boop!
