[Music] howdy folks my name's cowboy Ian and this here is my trusty steed plops and this is the brand-new brutal foods kitchen where today we're gonna be preparing to Larrick and desserts that'll leave y'all goin mmm them suckers tasty yeehaw [Music] some of you guys might already know but I recently left the great state of Washington and moved back to my home state of Texas that's why we're in a brand new kitchen and it's also why I'm gonna be dressing like this and saying things like howdy ya and tarnation all day I hope y'all have a hankerin for some sweets because today we're gonna be preparing to Texas treats first up is a recipe I found on all recipes called Texas yum yum which I chose specifically for the name it's actually the username that I use on farmers only so a bit of a personal attachment there this chocolate and vanilla layered pudding pie is a perfect treat for a hot day no baking required and it is really easy to so it's a pudding pie I don't know that I've ever had Texas yum yum but I'm hoping that it will make me say yum yum yum since this is a puddin pie it's unsurprising that we're gonna be needing two boxes of pudding one chocolate and one vanilla we need a 9-inch pre-prepared graham cracker crust some confectioner sugar [Music] you need some milk and some cream cheese and some frozen whipped topping the recipe didn't say I needed any but in the picture there were some sprinkles so I went ahead and picked up some chocolate sprinkles as well step one in a medium bowl mixed together the chocolate pudding mix and one and a half cups of milk until smooth and well blended pour into the graham cracker crust alright so let's get started on the chocolate pudding the packaging of pudding is so weird the inside bag is like unmarked it looks kind of sketchy [Music] whoops actually can't remember the last time I made jell-o pudding was it's been a little while cool I love how it's like bubbling up down there wild looking for some reason I thought pudding would be a little thicker this is a little watery maybe it thickens up after it sits a bit I would believe bad I also need to get the graham cracker crust out of the package [Music] hmm well that's gonna be a good crust I tell you what I'm just gonna pour our pudding into the crust here oh babe it smells really good who doesn't like chocolate pudding how do you hate chocolate pudding right I need to get like a scooper thingy tempted you just in the video here I'm tempted to just in the video here and change it to I just made chocolate pudding and then Aaden plop all right so now that I got all the pudding in here I'm gonna smooth it out level it out a bit I will say that this is filling up more of the pie crust than I expected I hope we're gonna be able to fit the rest of the layers I think there's two or three more layers we got to do [Music] that looks pretty good oh yeah yom-yom step number two in a clean bowl beat cream cheese with an electric mixer until soft then mix in confectioner sugar fold in two cups of the whipped topping and spread on top of the chocolate pudding layer Hey recipe authors stop making all of your steps five different steps step two has four steps what just make it it's separate step well I guess I'm going to need the electric mixer [Music] we've got a little KitchenAid mixer here I have to give you guys a warning though I've never used it so do not follow me as a guide for how to use it I'm just gonna do my best how do I get it to open

okay well I gotta get this thing off oh [Music] oh you push it push it up twist it off there we go hello since it says to beat the cream cheese I think this is the one that I'm supposed to use so let's stick that right on here you have this 8 ounce package of cream cheese that we're gonna use I'm gonna hold it over the bowl just in case I didn't know the cream cheese came to brick like this cream cheese it seems pretty soft to me already I mean I can squish my finger right into it that seems soft to me but I will beat it anyway until it's soft dirt and here we get

[Music] let your fast the only ominous it doesn't I don't know that it's doing the best job at mixing it seems like it's all getting stuck on the on this thing we're gonna post the cream cheese out let go again [Music] you know it's happening again I'm gonna use I'm gonna go back to using this I think maybe this is a better option ooh you know what be sure to unplug your mixer if you're sticking your finger in the rotating part [Music] let's give let's give this one a go oh yeah this is working a lot better I picked the wrong one this is clearly what they wanted not getting stuck it's getting in there softening up that cream cheese I'm just gonna say that soft enough I don't know so now we're supposed to add a cup confectioner sugar I need a cup [Applause] [Music] GUP that sugar oh my goodness cup of confectioner's sugar [Music] is that funny I have no way of knowing if this is right it looks okay [Music] I feel like I wish it was getting the stuff on the sides more it's not it's not quite scraping the sock inside is looking pretty good though that looks correct I would think fold in two cups of whipped topping last time I was supposed to fold something in people weren't happy with me I can't say that I've learned how to fold anything in since then so I'll do my best well that looks pretty tasty you know that's got a taste the ingredients right well I could just eat a tub of that stuff's tasty so my guests for the folding in my guess is that I'm supposed to put it in as it's slowly mixing

that's looking pretty right right okay let's get the second cup in there okay chefs rate my folding in performance how did I do did I correctly fold it in this time it looks right I'll put this back in the freezer for later okay so we're supposed to spread this on top of the chocolate pudding layer mmm I mean doesn't that just look yummy okay and we push it twist it open well this goes on top of here [Music] yeah not everything blended we're getting some stray confectioner sugar in here you know I think I should have let the frozen topping thaw a bit more there's definitely some frozen chunks still in here that are making it a little bit difficult to spread all right well that is looking and tasting pretty tasty so now we're supposed to make the vanilla pudding and it goes on top and once again I have my doubts that it's gonna fit but let's see [Music]

I supposed to do that a little closer to the bowl okay we need one and a half cups of milk man plops keeps trying to get away from me here stay stay you you don't stay put we're gonna cook you on a future episode one the half cups of milk ah turn so yellow I mean I know it's supposed to but it's still not the best site that I've ever seen it ain't the best site I've ever seen sure ain't spread on top of cream cheese layer spread the remaining whipped topping oh so we're gonna use the rest of the whipped top okay well it's it's solidified enough to where maybe we're gonna be okay that looks like it's gonna fit okay so we spread this oh it is I mean it's really heaped up on here guys actually you know one camera doesn't look that bad on camera looks pretty normal so maybe it's normal okay last but not least we're going to add the rest of the whipped topping to the top oh no it's too solid okay we've got a problem the whipped topping is too solid to spread I don't want it to mess up the layers if I try and spread it too much I'm gonna mess it up it's not gonna look near as nice I mean it's not gonna look nice with a giant glob of whipped cream in the middle either but I'm just doing my best

[Music] [Applause] [Music] and that's it doesn't look like it turned out quite like the pictures said it would I feel like our proportions of the layers are gonna be way off but it does need to chill for at least 30 minutes so I'm gonna put this in the fridge and while we're waiting for it to cool we're going to make our second recipe our second recipe for today is cowboyed bark Trader Joe's copycat recipe just looking at the pictures really got me interested at first glance it looks a lot like a take 5 candy bar which is one of the greatest candy bars of all time we are going to need 16 ounces of dark chocolate one and a half cups mini pretzels and the only mini pretzels at my local store came in prepackaged bags it's kind of dumb but I really wanted to make sure I got the small ones so I've got 8 specks Oreos the recipe calls for toffee bits which I was unable to find so I'm gonna do my best to improvise I'm gonna use Werther's it was I promise it was the closest thing I could find it's caramel but I love Werther's so I think it'll go fine on cowboy bar almonds and sea salts which I definitely have somewhere first thing we're gonna do is line a baking sheet with parchment paper does not say how big the baking sheet should be so I'm using this one it is approximately size long and sighs why'd the parchment paper is a little big but it should be fine before beginning to melt the chocolate have all the ingredients chopped prepped and ready to go so that they're ready to be added while the chocolate is hot and melty easy enough I've got to do some prep work got to do a smidgen of prep work but it'll be over faster than a rattlesnake on a second rattlesnake first up let's do the peanuts need a third of a cup of them's I'm gonna be honest here don't quite know what I'm doing when it comes to the chopping I just don't want to hurt myself I mean I'm okay I get a little messy I just don't want to cut a finger off because I feel like I need them a little bit hey Ramsey I know you're watching is this proper knife skills is this how we do it

no I need the same amount of almonds here I'm gonna be honest I don't care too much for almonds almonds just don't really do anything for me I don't know boring you know what these are actually looking pretty tiny almonds more like small moons so last but not least we're gonna have to break up our Werther's original

that's about 1/3 up I wouldn't mind a little more were there big thing people had a really good idea the last time I had to break something up about putting them in a bag so the bits don't go everywhere pretty smart okay so we've got all of our words in a nice little bag here but to break them up we're actually gonna have to go to the new brutal foods kitchen lab because I don't want to mess up anything here in this nice kitchen so let's mosey on over to the lab now do y'all and welcome to the brand-new state-of-the-art brutal Foods Food Lab where today


bag broke open a little bit

[Music] [Applause] [Music] so now we've got our smashed Werther's here I actually think I may have gone a little overboard with the Smashing I kind of turned it mostly in the powder and ripped a decent amount of holes in the bag so it's kind of spilling everywhere but they look tasty all right so now we got to get started melting some chocolate from here on out it should go pretty fast I'm just gonna melt the chocolate pour it on the parchment paper and then put the toppings on it and we're done sixteen ounces of chopped I think that I think that if anything we want a little more chocolate because worst case scenario we have more chocolate [Music] [Applause] [Music] [Applause] make sure you use a microwave-safe bowl and we're gonna put this in the microwave on HIGH for two to three minutes [Music] okie-dokie that is looking and smelling great so now we're gonna act kind of quick because the chocolate is nice and melty we're gonna pour it out onto this parchment paper here [Applause] [Music] [Applause] [Music] let's read it out I gave some dimensions and how thick the chocolate should be but don't really remember what they were so I'm just gonna spread it out on this parchment paper until it looks it's just got to look like a it's bark thickness right okay well that looks pretty great now we sprinkle stuff right where I need the pretzels first is there and the bigger things I think wait wait our gluten free pretzels different bummer wait I may have real pretzels for some reason I thought the gluten free pretzels would be the same I didn't see any other kind of pretzels there I've got backup pretzels I could do a whole video on those things weird you know since our backup pretzels aren't mini I am gonna break them a bit all the pretzels I saw at the store were listed as gluten free so I guess I kind of thought that all pretzels were and they'd be the same maybe I was just in the gluten-free section I guess that's a possibility maybe I was just looking in the gluten-free section okay does that look like enough pretzels I guess it's just up to your personal taste what you want to put on here and how much of it I'm gonna go ahead and do the Werther's here I might just be able to shake it out of the bag there's so many holes actually that's that's actually working surprisingly okay well I obliterate the word there's so much that it's letting me make this really nice even coat of Werther's on the chocolate so I don't know that might work out pretty good now I'm gonna put the peanuts on there first before the almonds rocks pretty good put some almonds on there and then I salt it right that's everything Oh Oreos I'm supposed to put Oreos on here duh in retrospect I think the Oreos should have gone on first maybe even before the pretzels I'm worried that because of the all the toppings we've already put it's not gonna stick to the chocolate and it's just gonna sit on top just gonna try and distribute them you know you want it to be evenly distributed but you don't want it to look too exact that's probably enough cookie right that's plenty of Oreo this is what it looks like and boy howdy does that look little bit didn't turn out quite as good as it did in the pictures but this is my first time and I also got a lot of the wrong ingredients so maybe on round two now you can let it set for an hour in room temperature or put it in the freezer for 30 minutes I'm gonna opt to go for the freezer so we can taste it sooner I hate these types of refrigerators whoever decided the whole split down the middle thing who did this you can't put anything in here it doesn't fit okay I got it in there it's gonna sit there for 30 minutes I think it's about time we tried our Texas and y'all know but before I do that let me do a little bit of cleaning up [Music] well I'm Texas young young boy in a Texas yom-yom world

[Music] all right so that's clean enough let's start tasting okay so first up we are going to try the Texas young yo turned out looking pretty good I wish I had had enough whipped topping to cover the whole thing what I'm not sure about is how to serve it it's pudding Willa you slice into it do you spoon it let's find out so I don't think I need like a huge piece or anything I'm gonna try and just get a little tiny bit just a little slice for us to try I'm worried I'm not gonna be able to make it through the crust oh there we go [Music] well I'm gonna leave it on the little slice thing but that actually did kind of slice right through check that out oh I smelled a chocolate too you can see the all the layers in there you can see there's the chocolate layer I think probably turned out too thick I think too much of the chocolate but everything else looks pretty good I need like a fork well I guess it's on a thing [Music] yom-yom that's really good I don't want to talk about it I'm just gonna eat it some more [Music] that's freakin good if you're familiar with pudding and whipped cream you can envision it on your minds tongue it's pudding and whipped cream pretty much I actually know what that's kind of under selling the cream cheese layer because that may be the best layer it is really stinking good the crust really ties it all together that graham cracker crust man maybe I just haven't had pudding in a long time and I've been missing the pudding but I'm all about this [Music] it's so good I want to get a glass of milk with well boy howdy if that ain't a crowd-pleaser it's got chocolate it's got vanilla it's got graham cracker I mean what's not to love before I actually made it I kind of thought this was gonna taste cheap oh and lame I mean it's just like pudding or whatever but pudding is good so let's mosey on over and see how our cowboy Bart is doing [Music] well that looks pretty solidified to me [Music] I just realized I forgot to put salt on it you know the pretzels have salt the peanuts I think have salt I really should have done that I don't even know where my salt is I know I've got salt somewhere but before I tear up the kitchen looking for it let's just try it without adding salt and see how it is it might be fine all right I'm gonna cut out just a little piece I don't need too much I did just have some Texas yum yum I mean it definitely definitely barked the Oreos some of the Hori OHS are already kind of loose really should have put the Oreos on earlier oh it just broke it just broke right down the middle ah that's fine so that I'll just put it around there we go it's chocolatey its pretzel II I mean I'm really excited to try it though I have my doubts it's gonna live up to the yum-yum and the yum yum was pretty stinking home was very hard [Music]

[Music] I'm getting a lot of dark chocolate I mean look at this look at how thick the chocolate is there I think with the way I did my toppings a little unbalanced I'm gonna go for a part that's more in the middle it's got a little bit more pretzel let's maybe try one of these I got to be careful because I don't want to break my tooth on a Werther's [Music] it's very rich that dark chocolate man okay here's my verdict on the cowboy bark right it's okay not great I really like the idea especially the sweet and salty angle but I would I would make a few adjustments first of all I wouldn't use Werther's I don't know what idiot thought it was a good idea to use Werther's but terrible idea another change I'd make would be using milk chocolate instead of dark chocolate but that's a huge personal preference it's not that I dislike dark chocolate but in this particular case it really overpowers everything else honestly I mainly just taste the dark chocolate I really like this idea though and I feel like it's got room for personalization cause really all you're doing is laying down a chocolate base and just sprinkling on your favorite toppings that could be a fun family activity just melt some chocolate grab some toppings and just sprinkle away and I definitely recommend putting the salt on there I thought maybe I could get away with just the salt on the pretzels but it really needs that extra kick of salt in my opinion I'm a big fan of salt though I want it to be super salty I love the salt however although this was a recipe I think I enjoyed more in theory I didn't do it exactly right though so maybe if you do it exactly correct it's a bit better I hope you enjoyed taking a look at these two Texas treats the cowboy bark a little disappointing for me but man that Texas yum yum is yum yum I thought this was gonna be the thing I was clamoring over once all was said and done but all I'm left thinking about is getting another bite of that Texas yum yum mmm you know I just realized that plops here didn't get a taste of anything did you flops [Applause] [Music] no well here I got some yum-yum for you what do you think about like that thanks y'all for watching this video I hope you enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed that Texas yum-yum getting up trying out any of these recipes yourself leave a comment let me know how you liked it I love seeing how you guys feel about what I make I'll be back soon with another video but for now I got a ride off into the sunset I'm gonna get along my little doggies and mosey on into the cowboy place here I go
