charge for Chocolate dipped oreos HELP - Page 2

post #16 of 215
thanks for the info on the oreos... i just ordered some of the molds and cannot wait to get them!

I just ordered the molds too from 3dmolds.com and they never gave me a shipping charge - That's SCARY, they have my credit card number!!! Hopefully it won't be that much for just a mold.....

Yeah... the TBD shipping was a little scary but i agree that it should not be too much (i hope!)

They will email you with the shipping charge, it's very minimal, they only charge actual UPS or USPS shipping charges.

Thanks for the oreo info, I cant wait to impress some people!! tee hee hee

Does anyone know if there is a way to make the chocolate around the cookies softer? I had made some of the petit fours with the white chocolate banana butter cream icing and banana cake on the inside and they were super yummy but I found that my friends were having a hard time crunching into the chocolate to get to the good stuff. Any suggestions? I also put my choc. in the mold and banged it out so it was super thin and it still had quite a crunch.

To make the chocolate softer you can add some crisco while it is melted or something called paramount crystals, to get a better consistancy for biting. The crystals are available at sugarcraft.com or countrykitchensa.com

gingersoave, did you use actual chocolate or did you use candy coating? I could be mistaken but if you use real chocolate you may have to temper it before putting it in a mold and maybe that's why your chocolate was so hard.

Also, I just checked my invoice from 3dmolds and they charged me $5.15 for priority mail shipping for three molds. I only actually ordered two molds, but they sent me a free sample mold also, HTH.

I used candy melts, not real chocolate. Will the paramount crystals work with candy melts or should I use real chocolate (like the chocolate chips?) I'm not even close to being a candy girl, it's so foreign to me, but being a Wilton instructor I need to do it all so that I can teach it.

Gingersoave,

Could you explain to me how you did your petit fours? Are you saying you coated them in chocolate, but that inside they had buttercream? If so, how did you do this (if you donn't mind sharing)?

Thanks,
Kathi

Hi Kathi, sure I'll share. I bought some soap molds and melted white candy melts and poured them into the molds then banged the chocolate out as much as I could then I popped them into the fridge and let them get hard. Then I squired buttercream icing into the mold and then added a piece of cake then added more melted chocolate and put it back into the fridge and once it was hard I popped them out. They were super big b/c they were soap molds but the friends were having a hard time biting into them since they there was chocolate around it.
