Lily, what a wonderful story. It's nice to hear about the good things that people do!

I have a similar story...

I made the pink ribbon CCO for my friend to sell so she could raise money for the 3-day walk. I emailed the pictures of them to Spinningleaf and I got this email in return...

"Dear Teresa,

Thanks for your email!

Great Job! These look fantastic!!! You definitely did the molds justice, and it's great to see them put to such good use! And it was your free mold no less! If you ever need more of these for such a noble cause, just let us know and we donate as many molds as you need.

Thanks again, we greatly appreciate your business!"


My friend requested that I make more of them and when I informed spinningleaf that I was making them again, they sent me 3 free molds! They really are such a great company!!

Wow.. I just posted in another thread asking about them.. wanting to know if there was a particular free mold that they send out... Anyway, I'm glad that I decided to order from them, reading how generous they are.. I ordered this morning.. ($50.00 worth).. I'm excited to try them especially since the ones that are posted look so perfect...

I love this thread. I do have a question, I have never really used molds before and was looking on the spinning leaf site and was looking at the celtic mold. How do you get the green top for this mold. Is a seperate mold or do you have to put the green in first. Also, how do you get the candy melt green. I am really anxious to try these, so any help is appreciated. Thank you.

You can buy green candy melts or you can buy food colors made specially for candy (it has to be oil based). You could also try the candy melt "pens" that SpinningLeaf is now selling. It comes in a tube with a tip, you heat it up in the microwave, and fill the cavity. Let harden slightly, then fill with the regular chocolate.

I've got the Celtic mold, and whenever I make them, I just fill with chocolate and don't even bother using green! They look fantastic either way!

Thanks for the information. I looked on spinning leaf and found the tubes, that's looks like the way to go. Now it's just deciding which molds to get. Can't wait to try these!!

I love the chocolate covered Oreos, and have had wonderful luck with the SpinningLeaf molds. I made 210 of them for my nephew's wedding as their favors, and not a single one was left on the tables! I even got fancy and did the Doublestuff golden Oreos for the bride cookie and the Doublestuff regular Oreo for the groom cookie. Quick, fun, and very yummy.

When the cookies are done how do you package them other than individually? Can they be stacked on top of each other & placed in the clear bags? Thanks.

I place them in cupcake liners and put them in a 10x10 cardboard pie box, with 25 fitting perfectly. I've also put 3 in a small ziplock baggie for when my sons sold them at a school bake sale. When I made them for my nephew's wedding they were placed in the cupcake liners and then two were placed in a small tin container that had a lid, one cookie on top of the other. They had glued strips of scrapbook paper around the outside of the tin and then tied with a ribbon. Very pretty!

How far in advance did you make them? I'm wondering when I can start making some for Christmas, as well as wondering which molds I should order!

I made them the week before, as that is when I had time. I remember reading somewhere that they will stay fresh for up to 3 months, and I can believe it. Once the Oreos are encased in chocolate, no air can get to them to cause them to go stale. So keep them in a cool, dry place and you can certainly do them weeks in advance without worry!

Thanks! I hope to order some molds in the next few days, if I can ever decide which ones. I keep changing my mind! I hope to make Christmas Oreos (and maybe even peanut butter cups) by mid-November.

I made some for my family last year and we were still eating them a month later. I kept them covered in a cool place.
