charge for Chocolate dipped oreos HELP - Page 12

post #166 of 215
Try mixing the CandyMelts with real chocolate chips. A 50/50 mix worked great for me. I didn't have a problem with "bloom" and the taste was very rich and chocolatey. (I'm not a fan of the Wilton's, either, but there aren't a whole lot of options around here.) CK also sells the discs, and I use their "super white" a lot (they really are much whiter than the Wilton).

I finally got a chance to make my awareness ribbon chocolate covered oreos so I figured I'd share.

I also did a bunch of the smiley face ones for a graduation party...

Once I got the hang of them, they are very easy! The problem with my first batch was that I was trying to spoon the chocolate into the mold, but with all of these I used a piping bag and they were SO much better!

Your cookies are fabUlous! How are you getting them so smooth? Are you molding the cookie or dipping it? I tried dipping it and it left runny marks on the cookies and they were not perfectly circle.

BTW, for my molds, I use the plastic bottles that can be placed in hot water or the microwave. So when I'm finished I just put the cap back on the bottle and there is nothing to clean up. They sell 12 of them in a pack at Michaels and Joanns for about $10.

I use a mold that I got at www.spinningleaf.com

I use a piping bag with the tip cut off to about a 2 or 3 tip to fill in the ribbon, let that set, then use a different piping bag cut to a 5 or 6 tip to fill the mold about a 1/4 full, push the oreo in (careful not to push it in too far or it will show when unmolded) and cover with more chocolate.

I've tried using the bottles but I didn't have as much controll with the small details.

I just pour the chocolate into a measuring cup with a "pour spout" and use that. Pour into the mold about 1/3 full, rattle on the table to get rid of air bubbles, push in the Oreo, pour to fill, and do a final rattle. Pop the mold into the refrigerator for 10 minutes, then turn the candies out onto a dish towel. Quick!

i also find, especially in hot weather, that it's best to use a white cotton glove to unmold, paper and/or package the cookies. i had a woman ask me one time, if a mark on the top of one of my plain oreos was a finger print. (it was the circle on top of the cookie when it separated from the mold). i was glad to be able to tell her i never touch the cookies, i always use white cotton gloves.

I can't take any of the credit, I got the idea from this thread. I LOOOVE the molds though. I'm going to buy the plain ones and then add small chocolates to the top for all sorts of occasions.

Post pictures when you do yours twooten!

I have to share my experience with spinning leaf as I am so overwhelmed with the company. I had purchased 1 mold a long time ago and just loved it. I emailed them recently to ask them if I could share their name with 2 local cake and candy suppliers. I volunteer for a camp for handicapped kids and we put on a big annual fundraiser at Christmas each year. We wanted to make the oreo cookies for this but couldn't really afford to spend too much on molds. I thought if our local suppliers carried the molds, we could buy one here and there without so much shipping. A few days ago, a big box arrived at my door and it contained 1 of every chocolate mold that they make. I still get teary eyed when I think of what they did. We will make all kinds of cookies for the fund raiser and the kids will use them at camp next summer to make treats for their parents. It is wonderful to know that there are still kind people out there. Please support this wonderful company.
