post #76 of 99
Oh no not again........I want to cry. icon_cry.gif

Groooooaaaaaan, oh you guys.............such beauuuuuutiful decorations on such an awful, nasty, ugly little cookies........Tis a shame "she shakes her head".......I'm so sorry, but those dried up little cow chips are just plain Ishy-Ka-Ka to me. Just my humble opinion. It's like putting a million dollar diamond necklace on Roseanne Barr. icon_eek.gif It just doesn't work in my head.

When the world is nuked - - - only the cockroaches and Oreos will be left....oh ya and maybe those foul Twinkees also. icon_rolleyes.gif

What in the world? Oreos rock! I can't think of one person I know that doesn't like chocolate covered Oreos. Especially when they are decorated and packaged nicely. Such a treat!

i'm sorry, but isn't this thread for helping people who have questions about making and decorating chocolate dipped oreos? and not for insulting people who do?

i thought i could come to this thread to learn something new.

well digresssion and fun are a part of life --

and do we ever digress on here sometimes all the in the name of fun and "gemulichkeit"

it's a fact of life on CC that even the serious threads will take twists and turns that go way off track -- but we always get back on track --- eventually!

and a little levity never hurt anyone (tho' too much leavening might make your cakes too poofy)

-----

SO -----

(in best teacher tone he can muster for a Saturday)

::clears throat::
::putting on most serious face he can::

OK PEOPLES!!!

LISTEN UP!

IT'S time to get back to work and have a serious discussion here about making chocolate covered oreos that are so decadent that even the most die-hard dieter would forget about "die"ting and pig out!

You shouldn't put your molds in the dishwasher. It messes up the finish on your chocolate (well, when using couverture that needs to be tempered, etc).

You can do like the PP said and hand wash first. They wouldn't really need to be washed after that, as long as the chocolate came out. They can be rubbed with a soft cotton cloth.

I wonder if that is why some are having problems getting their CCO out of the molds, because they "washed" the finish off in the dishwasher?

i had some problems getting them out last time and have never put the molds in the dw. the last batch i made. the chocolate would stick and pull off the cookie. i had two that i couldn't give to the recipient. i was pretty bummed, but dh ate them, so no worries!

i was wondering how you all package them for selling?

i was invited to a craft fair in may and i would like to sell some oreos, but i have no idea what to package them in. i am not too into those cello bags. something like a plastic sleeve or a box?

thanks so much!

I package them a few different ways. It depends on how many are ordered.
I use these boxes that fit 6 perfectly. It is a white box with a clear lid. I also use these clear plastic containers that also fit 6.
I also have a box that fits 24. It is more like a cake type box but it is about 1 1/2 - 2 inches tall.
I also sometimes use little bags that fit them perfectly with only the end left to put a ribbon or twist tie on. I have people ask me for the way they want them packaged. For Christmas, My friend wanted them packaged in singles so she could hand them out as favors. So i put them in these little bags with red and green ribbon tied around them.
Look at my pictures, you can see the different ways I have packaged them.

I just posted a picture in the gallery (you can look in my photos) of a little thank you gift of oreos. I packaged 6 in a box. Maybe you could do something like that?

Hmmm, the only thing I can think of as to why the chocolate would stick in your molds is that maybe it wasn't set all the way. When I'm ready for my chocolate to set, I stick it in the freezer for 5-10 minutes and they pop out beautifully. HTH! thumbs_up.gif

wow, your cookies look awesome! where do you buy your packaging??

those ones i made that stuck were weird. i let the chocolate set up, then stuck them in the freezer for 10 minutes, then when they wouldn't come out, i stuck them back in for a few minutes. they all came out great but two and those two popped out but left some chocolate and cookie behind... weird.
