I figured it costs me approximately 30 cents each to make chocolate covered DoubleStuffs. The molds make them pretty quick and easy to make. What you need to do is figure out exactly what your expenses are, and then decide how much of a profit margin will make you happy. I've seen where people charge as much as $1 per Oreo, and as little as 50 cents per Oreo. What will the market bear in your area?

Are these bars coating chocolate or regular chocolate -- would I have to temper them?


How many Spinning Leaf molds do you need to buy to get one free?

The Ghirardelli bars are dipping chocolate, so you don't have to worry about tempering. I think any order from SpinningLeaf will get you a free mold...at least, that was the case in the past. If there is a particular mold you'd like to have as your freebie, ask nicely in the "comments" box and the chances are good that you'll get the one you want.

Thanks GeminiRJ, I've decided to go with 1.00 per cookie.

I needed to figure in the packaging also for my pricing, but I get $1.75 for one cookie in a little pyramid box, $5 for three in a box, $9.75 for 6 in a box and $19 for a dozen in a box.

Leah's!! I've missed you on Friday nights!!!

I think costs are lower in my area b/c I make a hefty profit with $1 each or $9/dozen for plain ones. (Especially with the sale price for the Ghiradelli Bars!) I've only made the "painted" ones for practice and am still not good at it--they are time consuming! icon_sad.gif

My designs on top are still always smeared when dry. No matter what I do with them. I put them in the frig until they were nice and hard. Before I added the chocolate. Should I freeze after I put the colored designs in to stop that?

I need to make 50 choc. covered oreos with the little feet design for a baby shower, what would be best, to place all of them in one big clear box or separate?

To make the Oreos (frankly I use store-brands) with a colored design, put the colored choc into the design. Don't fill the design completely. Freeze. Put the main color choc in. tap, tap, tap, tap. Lay in cookie. Put in more choc. tap, tap, tap.

Hold the mold up and look under and at the sides to make sure everything's covered.

freeze for 4-5 minutes. Pop out.

I guess it depends on if they are favors or will be served at the shower. If served, I would put them on a tray wrapped in celphane and a ribbon. If favors, it's better to do them seperate-maybe in small, clear treat bags?

Thank you Imacakes, I think I saw some small treat bags at Michaels. I will use those. Thanks again

Which store brand do you use? I tried a local brand and they were a hair too big for the mold.

Thanks Leahs
I figured maybe I should freeze the colored design. Got any idea how long?

Anyone know where to buy these boxes or similar ones wholesale?

Thanks, Gemini. I'll look for that chocolate -- I just love their candy.



Twooten, try here. I've never ordered from them, but a lot of ladies here have and said nice things about them. I think they do wholesale.

I think CK does wholesale, too.
