Covering oreos....

post #1 of 53
Thread Starter 
I posted this in the How do I forum but nobody's responded yet. I figured this is another place I could post this too

So I really wanted to make Christmas cookies for everyone this year but I so don't have a lot of time to make anything detailed. So I was thinking of making chocolate covered oreos instead...

The problem is that I don't have any molds.

Does anyone have simple instructions for me to make them without a mold and make them look nice...

So do I use chocolate of candy melts?? Do I use a microwave or a double boiler???

If anyone can help it would be awesome. I just need tips and advice.

TIA!

just melt your chocolate in which ever way you prefer. Then dip and shake the excess chocolate off, to help minimize the pooling around the base, then while wet you can shake some sprinkles on. The mint oreos dipped with crushed candy canes sprinkled on are very festive and quite easy to make.

My families favorite is the peanutbutter oreos dipped in chocolate, then i will add sprinkles or drizzled colored chocolate to make them look fancy.

I like to use merkens to dip with, cause i can get it locally and it tastes better then the wilton candy melts.

You could also just purchase the white chocolate covered ones from the store and decorate with your own royal icing. They're delicious!

You can use cupcake liners for molds if you want. Place the liners in your cupcake pan. Add some melted chocolate (I prefer Ghirardelli's Dipping Chocolate), add the Oreo, add more chocolate. Rattle the pan to settle any air bubbles. Refrigerate at least 20-30 minutes before un-molding. Drizzle with different colored melted chocolate. Or lightly coat the top with more chocolate and cover with sprinkles or crushed candy. Or add a bit of melted chocolate to the bottom of a Hershey's kiss and set on the top. Good luck!

I made them for the first time this year, much easier than i expected. I used the Ghiradelli candy making and dipping bar in double chocolate. When they were wet I just added those hard sugar decorations from wilton. They looked adorable and those sugar decorations were easy to pull off in case someone didn't want to eat them. I used Double Stuff oreos, I think the extra filling helped with all the chocolate. I didn't use a mold, i just dipped them in, tapped off the extra and let dry on parchment paper.

I ordered some molds from Spinningleaf.com

I can't wait for them to arrive.... they seem to be taking forever to make their way here to the UK, though.

And btw, peanut butter Oreos? OMG! They sound delicious. We do have those, here. Just the regular ones.

I have several molds from Spinningleaf. They are such nice molds and very sturdy compared to the normal plastic molds!

One tip when making the oreo's using the molds. The molds call for the double stuff oreos. First off, make sure you like that thick of a cookie.
I personally don't. Then, by the time you pour all that choc. into the molds, the cookie is very large. Even my choc. loving kids said that was way too much chocolate AND a cookie.

Next time, I'd use the regular cookie and only fill it to cover the cookie and not all the way up which th double stuff does.
Just my opinion.

I have been making the chocolate covered oreos a lot this season and it's been fun and much easier than I thought! I have a few of the spinning leaf molds and I am finding I like the plain molds best so far then just add my own decorations on top. I have had a few people say the regular oreos covered in merkens chocolate is too much chocolate but the double stuff oreos make the mold explode they are so big. I will say so far my favorite it the limited edition candy cane oreos dipped in mild chocolate, YUM!b

I'm so glad this topic came up again... I've been meaning to post a question about the cookie molds and just keep forgetting.

I ordered the molds from SpinningLeaf, including the Nutter Butter ones. I've tried a few times now and CANNOT get my cookies out of the molds. What am I doing wrong?

I'm using Ghirardelli chocolate, double-stuff Oreos. Someone help, please!

Pop them in the freezer for a few minutes and they will come right out.

Make absolutely sure the chocolate is completely set. I refrigerate no less than 30 minutes, and have had no trouble getting them out of the molds.

Meh, regular Oreos, double stuff, they both work. If you're using the doubles, then don't use so much chocolate. And yes, pop them in the freezer and then they come right out of the mold.

I just ordered my molds. Can't wait! TejasRebel....you're not putting double stuffed in the standard mold are you? I just saw when I placed my order that there are different molds. Just a thought.
