[Intro Music] Hey guys, it’s Ro welcome to another Nerdy Nummies! I got so many requests from you guys to make something Steven universe themed. So that is exactly what we’re gonna be doing today. Today, we’re gonna make a recipe that is easy mode. We are gonna be making bonbons and not just any bonbons, we are going to be making ICE CREAM BONBONS! Yum yum yum! In French ‘bon bon’ means ‘good good’ and I would agree with that. They are very good good. Yummy in my tummy. I can’t wait! If you’re not familiar, Steven universe is an animation series and the main character they have these like powerful gems and they save the world of the universe where monsters and Steven, his gem is so similar to this cavity in the gem mold in my baking line because the bottom is shaped like a pentagon. So today, we are gonna be making Steven’s gem as an ice cream filled bonbon. Let’s get started! This recipe is so easy. You only need three things! One, is a mold. I’m gonna be using the one from my baking line. Two, some candy or chocolate melts. Because you can dye white chocolate different colors any color that you’d like and last but not least some ice cream and also you can use any kind of ice cream that you want. I’m gonna be using vanilla ice cream, so that my flavors today are gonna be vanilla and strawberry. It’s basically like a smoothie. (random noises) Now, without further ado, Let’s put it all together! First up to making this dessert, we’ve got to melt the candy melts or chocolate melts, whatever you’re working with. To do so, I’m gonna be using my melting pot cut them open and pour them all into the pot. Turn the pot on, flick it all the way over. hmmmphhhh…… OOOGGHHYAAAA After a few minutes of heating and mixing, this is what it should look like. Once your candy melts or chocolate have melted you just put it on the middle setting, and that will keep them warm. Take your mold, and we’re just gonna scoop in a little bit. We want to coat the bottom and the sides. What we’re doing is we’re making basically a little candy cup and then we’re gonna fill it with ice cream and coat the top with a candy melt as well. Once you’ve filled all your molds, lightly tap on the tray to help get out all the air bubbles. After you have your candy cups made, let them harden. You can leave them here at room temperature or you can pop’em in the freezer for 10 minutes. I like to do that because it’s faster! and I get my ice cream bonbons faster! mmmMMMmmm… [laughter] Okay, I just pop these out of the freezer. Our candy cups have hardened. Now, add your ice cream! Over here, I have some VANILLA ICE CREAM. Yummy yummy yummy!!! You can see all the little vanilla beans in there. Using a spoon, scoop a little bit of ice cream into each bonbon. A good tip here is not to overfill your tray. It’s tempting though. It’s pretty hard Just put a little ice cream in the middle and leave some room on the top for the candy mouth. I know what you’re thinking leaving room. It’s really difficult! I have a hard time doing that even when I’m eating dinner I’m like ‘Ro’ ‘You gotta leave room cuz for dessert. Soooo…’ After you have the ice cream in the little molds, pop back into the freezer again once more for 10 minutes! And while you’re waiting…. Have a treat! mmmbbbcc.. mmm… mcmccm Took this out of the freezer and before it melts, we’re gonna add the final layer, which is gonna seal our bonbons. So scoop a little bit of your melt on top. Then, I’m using an offset spatula to just smooth it out and take off the excess candy. Wooooooooh! Dew-dew-dew-dew-dew-dew-dew-dew-dew-dew-dew-dew-dew-dew-dew-deeww Whoooo, these are looking good. Final step a freeze for the last time. Pop these in the freezer for 10 minutes Our ice cream bonbons have frozen and they are ready to pop out and enjoy! I really like silicone molds because to loosen these little treats, you give them a little tug, Eeergh. And then pull the other way, Eeeup. Flip upside down and put a little pressure. BoOp boOp bOOp BooP.. WOAH! THERE WE GOOOO And TA-DAAA! There you have it. Our Steven Universe ice cream bonbon gems. I love making this treat because it is super easy mode and very customizable. You can use any type of melting chocolate or a candy melt and any type of ice cream. So you can fill them with whatever you’d like I’m gonna be taking pictures of all of these little bonbons and posting the recipe on Rosannapansino.com, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. So you can check it out there. And if you guys make these treats, please take a picture and send it to me. I love seeing your baking creations. It just makes me happy. It makes my day!
