Okay CC Members could someone out there help me with pricing for these cookies? I was asked to make them for a friend of a friend but I have no idea how much to charge them as I have always just made them as gifts.Thanks and have a HAPPY MONDAY

Hi there,

I charge $7 for 8 cookies. The cost for me to make 8 is $1.12 - $1.50. I may be cheap, but I live in the San Antonio, Texas area, and people order a lot at this price. I have a couple pictures in my photo gallery. For Valentine's, I actually packaged them in this really cool little package, not the heart. However, those heart boxes cost $1 (so you'd add that to the price to make).

On line you can find boxes of 12 oreos for about $19 - $22, plus $13 or so shipping. Ebay has people selling them for $7 - $20 or so, plus shipping.

Does this help any?

I just started doing more cookies this past Valentines. But this is how I priced mine. I add up what it cost to make them & try to at least double that for the total price.

Wow, I must be really cheap, I only charge 0.75 for my chocolate covered Oreos. I buy the Oreos bulk from Sam's and I when Michael's has their candy coating on sale for $1.70 I stock up. So it only costs me twenty cents per cookie to make them and I charge almost four times as much. Here are some pics, also, the ones pictured look like they were hand dipped, you'll get a more professional look if you invest in some oreo molds. You can get them at candylandcrafts.com, sugarcraft.com or choklitmolds.com. The latter is the cheapest place for them (only 0.84 apiece) but they have a $50 minimum order, I find I meet this minimum easily because they sell all sorts of chocolate molds, Lorann oils, lollipop sticks (I use them for cookies) bags, etc.

Wow! You are cheap icon_wink.gif I guess mine come out to about 88 cents per cookie. I hope we don't live in the same area! icon_lol.gif

I like your oreos. I use a mold too.

I sold 35 orders of 8 oreos for Valentine's and every person was so happy with them. They were individually wrapped - like yours. That's why I decided the $7. That, and the price of the Internet! A few even ordered more after their original. I know they only cost about 15 cents to make, but when you dress them up pretty.... It seems like one of the few things I actually make some money on.

I live in the country between SA and New Braunfels. What about you?

Ha ha, don't worry we don't live near each other. I live in NC San Antonio off of 1604 and Bulverde. I was actually thinking about raising my prices on the oreos after doing a little research of what people are charging for them on the internet. But, it's so hard to raise prices and I am still making a profit, can't ask for much more then that!

Those are cool looking and sound yummy. I never thought to do this, but I absolutely love the store bought fudge covered oreos. Do you just melt milk chocolate? Do you add anything to the chocolate to cover them? How do you get them so smooth? I usually make such a mess when I try to dip things, so I think I'm doing it wrong.

Sorry for being a dingaling, but how did you get the faces on the oreo cookies, obviously a mold but how do you put an oreo into a mold?
post #10 of 215
to gt them smooth you just use an oreo mold. fill the mold with a little candy coating, press the oreo down and fill with more candy coating. you can get the molds from the sites imentioned above.

sorry for all lowercase, i have a nursing baby in one arm, so i'm typing one handed

Around here they get $1 each as is, $1.50 on a lollipop stick with a bag and some ribbon around the bottom.

Thanks for the info!!!! I'm not much into cookies, I burn them sooo badly, so these oreo's are right up my alley, no baking cookies!!! People assume that since I make great cakes that I must be this awesome cook/baker - NOT!!!!! I burn green beans!!!! icon_surprised.gif I'm checking out the oreo molds now!!

forgot to add to stick the molds in the fridge to let the coating set up, then flip the mold over and bang it on a flat service to pop the oreos out.
