Cute idea for holiday packaging of Oreo cookies!!! - Page 23

post #331 of 347
I was at Sam's yesterday to see if they had any Ghirardelli bars left. Not only were there still some stocked, but the price had been dropped to $4.03 a bar! My husband ordered me to buy 10 bars...I was dithering about buying 5 or 6. I now have enough chocolate to keep me dipping Oreos for a very long time!

I bought some here in NY for the same. Last year when they went on clearance they were only $2!! I bought 6 yesterday and will keep going back every few days to see if they go lower.

The package says not to freeze them, but I did that last year and they were fine. Can anyone think of a reason they would go "bad" in the freezer?

The only problem with freezing them is sometimes choc from the freezer will have a kind of white look to it after it thaws. Its not a problem just storing it in a cool place for at least a yr .

So, you think it's just because of the "Bloom" that it says not to freeze them?

I want to really stock up while the blocks are on sale and in case I can't get them again until next year. (I have only found them during the Holiday season at Sam's--thus why they are on clearance, I believe) Having a lot of blocks in my pantry will take a lot of space. I'd rather they were out of the way in my extra freezer until I need them.

If they go down to $2 like last year, I'll freeze them for sure.

That would be my guess but sometimes that goes away after you melt it anyway, but I have had it show back up after its been melted and molded/dipped.
And yes it is a seasonal thing so when their gone thats it ! I also keep some of my extras in a big box on a closet shelf in my guest room and its just fine there to. Depends on how full my pantry is at the time.

I don't want to count how many bars I have stored downstairs! We have a lot of storage, and it always stays nice and cool in the basement. No problems with the chocolate whatsoever.

I love these molds!!! icon_biggrin.gif I had to stop though, because I have to get the kids soon & start a little girls b-day cupcakes due tommorrow.

Can anyone tell me if the "food writers" or "gourmet writers" will write on white chocolate covered oreos? I would think it might work if you didn't press too hard.

Thanks in advance,
Cheryl

Does anyone know how to get sprinkles or small candies such as M&M's to stick to the top of these after they are molded? If you put them in the mold they are covered with chocolate. I've seen pictures of the cookies completely covered with different kinds of sprinkles.

Once they're out of the molds, I brush on a bit of melted chocolate then cover with sprinkles. It doesn't take much time at all! I've also added "toppers" like Hershey's kisses, almond bark covered pretzels, molded chocolate designs, and royal icing decorations. The plain top mold is my favorite because you can personalize and "accessorize" the oreo in a variety of different ways.

Thanks! This worked like a charm. I thought this might be the way to do it. I thought about corn syrup but thought that might be too sticky and wouldn't hold larger candy pieces.

I like the plain ones the best too. I've used small cut out fondant shapes, piped icing, and royal icing decorations too. There are just so many different things you can do with the plain ones.
