No... size isn't the issue. It's that my chocolate isn't setting up and I'm having to dig the cookies out. I'll try freezing/refrigerating them longer.

Thanks, everyone!

Tejas,

How are you melting your chocolate? Real chocolate is tricky. If you use candy melts it is very easy. I've always had trouble with real chocolate because it has to be tempered (melted at the correct temperature, then cooled then melted again). I'm determined to get it right though! My kids also said that there is just too much chocolate on the oreo. I wonder if I ordered the molds for the double stuffed. I am going to try using the molds with just a little bit of chocolate. I've never had a problem getting them out when I use the candy melts. When I melted real chocolate they were harder to come out and I could tell that I didn't get it right because the chocolate was a little soft and had a cloudy color on top.

So I just made my first oreo cookies. When I take them out of the molds, I find the color of the design has spread a little and isn't crisp and clear like vickymacds. What is it I'm doing wrong?

Yep, same thing happened to me too. Also, the first two batches I did that were plain came out wonderful and I was really happy with them. I did two more batches, using the same chocolate, the same cookies, placed them in fridge the same way for the same amount of time and I had to end up digging the cookies out of the mold. I can't figure it out to save my life.

I didn't put mine in the frig. When the chocolate hardened, I put the min the freezer for about 10 min. Then I just pushed on the round part and they popped right out. It was just the coloring - I did the snowflakes and used blue for the snowflake. The blue kind of spread out

Yeah, I also made some with the Christmas tree mold. I used white chocolate and I colored the tree green. I let the green harden and then poured the white chocolate in, the cookie, the white chocolate and I did in fact place those in the freezer for I believe 8 minutes. Those popped out but the green ran. Did the same with the star mold as well. I know I didn't over fill the star or the tree so I don't know what happened.

I do a lot of painted chocolates and the color has to be completely dry before adding another color. The only thing I can think is when you take them out of the freezer the hot to cold makes it run. When you bring it out of the freezer maybe it should be room temp before you pour the other color on. I don't know this is just a guess, I don't put mine in the freezer between colors.

sorry for the confusion
I don't put them in the freezer between colors. Only when completely finished and the chocolate has hardened. The instructions are to put them in the freezer so they will pop out

Same here. When I did the tree and the star I didn't place them in the freezer. I just let them sit out on the counter until they appeared to be hard. I then poured in my melted chocolate, cookie and melted chocolate. Let them harden a bit and placed in freezer for about 8 minutes. Sorry, in my first post, I said fridge but I meant freezer icon_rolleyes.gif

I have always put my molds in the freezer betwen each color. I also paint my chocolate in the mold with a brush so that it's not so hot as to make the color underneath run. When I have all the details plus alll the side coated and cooled, then I pour in the rest to fill and freeze for the last time. Chocolate must be cold all the way through to "pop" out.

Aah, thanks for the explanation. I'm making more tomorrow so will try that. Is there a special chocolate you use?
