Chocolate Cherry Stout

Ever since I saw the kit that Joe sent Craig I wanted to make this Stout, but it would be too expensive after the shipping and exchange to Canadian funds. After Craig finally posted the video when he brewed the kit I had an idea of what the ingredients were used. So I created my own recipe using Brewer's Friend and modified it because my local HBS does not carry all the ingredients in the kit.

Since seeing this on YouTube... I've wanted to do this brew!

Any thoughts on how this would convert to all grain?

Also, what I gathered from Joe and Craig's videos is similar.
I gathered two LMEs and two DMEs (Added in the order below).
Extra Light LME
Plain Extra Light DME
Light LME
Plain Dark DME

The steeped grains seem to be the big question mark...
I was looking at the following (in quantities adding to about 5lbs per the original item description):
English Dark Crystal
English Roasted Barley
English Black Malt

The timing and additions for the boil that i gathered were:
0 min 3.3 lbs Muntons extra light LME
0 min 1 lb plain extra light DME
0 min UK East Kent goldings
30 min hops 1 oz MT Hood
50 min 3.3 lbs Muntons light LME
50 min 1 lb plain dark DME
50 min 1 oz MT Hood

I have not attempted this yet and was hoping for some thoughts.
I am not sure what I would use to get close to what the LMEs and DMEs contribute.

Also the nibs, vanilla and cherry at the fermentation stage at the appropriate times.
