Ok, I am back for more questions!

When packaging them, I was wondering what kind of poly bags to use. I am doing a baby shower in a few months and am stealing Fraggle's idea about the baby stuff on top!! icon_smile.gif Should be flattered right?!? Anyway, they will be favors included in a small pink take out box with a couple of other small items. I want to put 2 or 3 of the cookies in the bag, what size bags would I use.

I had another question but it has slipped my mind now! I will think of it later!

Thank you to EVERYONE!

A plain, molded Oreo is about 2" x 3/4 inch. If you add on another candy top to it, it'll be a little taller. I use the small cello bags and individually wrap them. I have no extras from all the Valentine's orders so I can't tell you the exact size, but they are small enough to hold only one cookie, with or without an extra topper. They're maybe 3"x4"? You can get 100 of them at our Walmart for pretty cheap (in the wedding section).

Anyway, if you didn't want to do them individually, you can use the 4"x6" for 2 and cut off the extra. Just a thought..

Thanks! That is kind of what I was thinking too. I am actually planning on doing them side by side and if a third one is put in there, to do like a triangular shape.

Thank you very much!

Okay, guys, one more question - how far in advance can these be made?

I try to make them within 3 days. If I wrap them individually and put them in baggies and tupperware, I do a week. However, I've found some (just in tupperware) hidden in my pantry that my husband and friends ate after 2 weeks or so and they gave rave reviews. icon_surprised.gif They tasted the same to me, but if people are buying them, I usually make them within 3 days.

This is such a great idea because I have tons of customers always asking me to put the chocolate covered oreos on their cakes as wheels, etc.
I am looking into ordering the molds, but dumbo me can't figure out what mold is suppose to be for the oreos on chocklitmolds.com. I saw the round mold, but it looked to rounded, if that makes any sense. icon_redface.gif Sorry to ask a dumb question, just wondering which mold you are all ordering! TIA!

loveqm - thanks for explaining that. Makes sense now.

countrycakes - the website is www.choklitmolds.com Download the catalog and I believe it says cookie molds. They're after the business type chocolate molds. Theres at least 15 types - plain, heart, tree, bride & groom, etc.

I am so impressed with 3dmolds.com. I ordered my molds on monday and they came TODAY!!!! They also sent along a free mini mold. It was the plain one. After I had placed my order I was wishing that I had ordered that one too. And to my surprise they had sent along a free mini mold and it was the plain mini mold. I will do business with them again for sure!!!!!!!!!!

I just received the molds I ordered and I also got a free baseball mitt one! Love it - I'm a huge Mets fan-I'm ready for opening day.

Will definitely order more from them. Great service. thumbs_up.gif

Can't wait to try them out.

Saving this thread!!! I've seen these in the gallery and have always wanted to try them, I just didn't know what kind of mold to get. SOOO happy this thread occurred!

And ribbitfroggie- don't feel bad! I was wondering the SAME EXACT thing! LOL.

I ordered mine on Monday, and it showed up Wednesday. I, too, got a free mold (a dragonfly). I was surprised to see that the company is based out of Ogalla, NE. Maybe that's why mine showed up so fast. And I was able to use them right away, because I was stuck home during a blizzard. Tip: Fill the mold half way, rattle it a bit to settle the chocolate, push in the Oreo, rattle a bit, then fill with more chocolate and give one last rattle. It takes no time, and they look great. I'm going to have to order more!

GeminiRJ have you dug yourself out of the snow yet? We got 14" at our house icon_cry.gif
Do they have a retail store or just mail order? Do you have to order 4 of each mold or just 4 total? Is the shipping reasonable? Sorry for the all the questions but I want to order some and didn't know if I could order 4 different ones or if they had to be the same. TIA

I read this post and I checked out the sites posted and of course I had to order 3 molds to start with. I can't wait til they come in so I can try this. I was at walmart a couple of days ago and I found red candy melts on sale for 0.50 a bag so I stocked up. I figure this will be a great way to get some practice and try out the molds. Hubby may kill me for ordering more stuff.(lol).
thanks for the great tips

tiggy2, 3Dmolds does not have a minimum order of molds you have to buy, but choklitmoldsltd.com does. With the latter, you do have to order at least 4 of one kind of mold, but if you're planning to do a lot of cookies, it's well worth it. They also have a $50 minimum order which I always spend easily as they have alot of stuff. Inlcuding the best price I've seen on Lorann Oils (4 drams for $2.85) and luster dust ($1.65 for 2 grams).

tiggy2...I ordered three molds total. I wanted to see how they would work. I picked the UPS Ground for shipping, and that ended up being just over $6.00. (So I figure I got shipping free when they added the bonus mold!) I made up a whole package of Oreo's, and my kids have just about polished them off. They are wonderful! I'm definitely going to have to order more.

I forgot to mention...yes, we finally dug out! We had drifts almost 2 feet deep. I woke up with a migraine on Thursday, so going into work wasn't even an option. And with all the snow and horrible traffic, I'm glad to have had an excuse to stay home. The whole family was home, as I was surprised when UNO cancelled, and my kids didn't have to go in. My husband has more vacation time than he can use, so it was a no-brainer for him to stay home.

So it only costs me twenty cents per cookie to make them and I charge almost four times as much. Here are some pics, also, the ones pictured look like they were hand dipped, you'll get a more professional look if you invest in some oreo molds. You can get them at candylandcrafts.com, sugarcraft.com or choklitmolds.com. The latter is the cheapest place for them (only 0.84 apiece) but they have a $50 minimum order, I find I meet this minimum easily because they sell all sorts of chocolate molds, Lorann oils, lollipop sticks (I use them for cookies) bags, etc.




I am so glad that you posted the pictures of your Oreos! I have been waiting months to see how they turned out! You did a great job!

OMG!!! I just checked out the 3Dmold website, $6.00 for one mold??!!! icon_eek.gificon_eek.gificon_eek.gificon_surprised.gificon_surprised.gificon_eek.gificon_surprised.gif

I paid .84 each for my molds at choklit molds ltd

They also have them on ebay for $2.00!!!
Look up sandwich cookie mold.

Sorry, I am just shocked that a company would charge $6.00 for one mold!!! icon_surprised.gificon_surprised.gificon_eek.gif

Thanks qtkaylassweets, I couldn't have done it without you. 3Dmolds is a little pricey, that's why I only bought the funny face molds from them, I couldn't find those anywhere else! I will say the plastic is a much better quality and they have excellent customer service.

ok, maybe I missed it in this thread... Or maybe you did not say....
Where did you get that baby mold? I have not seen that one. And I thought i had every mold that was ever made icon_wink.gif

I got it from choklitmoldsltd.com, they have one that has the bottle, rattle and carriage in one mold. I bought the teddy bears separately.
