I am a fan of some YouTube channel, and back in 2018, he posted this video: Slav snacks - Slav party tutorial and I really want to try these foods because I'm an Asian.

In timestamp 7:00, he shows off these stones, which are sugar-covered. I'm certain that since this is slav, it is hard to exactly figure out what the stones are.

Search for "sugar-covered stones" and you won't find the similar dessert. What exactly are these given "stones"?

    Not sure what kind they use in slavic countries, but there are a variety of "candy stones" made throughout the world. They are often filled with chocolate, chewy candy (similar to skittles) or something similar to the inside of a jelly bean. Mar 5, 2021 at 21:53
  • I almost didn't click on the video link, but I'm so, so glad I did. Thank you for that.

From the image, they look like jelly beans (or in Serbian, dželi bins) to me, based on the size, colour (including the slightly mottled pattern which tends to indicate better-quality jelly beans) and shine. The comment 'inside is a mystery' sounds to me like a clear reference to the fact that jelly beans often come in a variety of flavours, and it's not always easy to tell from the colour what the flavour will be.

The more general culinary term (although it's not a common one) for confectionery with a hard decorative outer shell is a dragée. The 'stones' in the video could be sugared almonds, although they look too small in my opinion, or something like coated raisins or other nuts.
