You have to use the wilton colors that are specifically designed for coloring chocolate, otherwise your candy melts will sieze up.

I have done chocolate transfers using white candy melts and wilton paste colors without my chocolate seizing up. I do add crisco which keeps it smooth.

I read this thread a while back when it started and wanted to try "Oreo dipping". I didn't really have the supplies I needed so I was winging it. I used cupcake papers and cupcake pan. I put a little chocolate in the bottom, pushed the cookie in and topped it off to cover. I chilled them and then took off the paper. It was a really neat look. Much like a Reese cup with the ridges on the edge. oh and yummy too! thumbs_up.gif

When you stick the candy molds on top of the dipped oreo, how do you get it to stay? frosting?

A little dab of melted chocolate will make it stick.

If you use a candy mold on top of a molded oreo, you can use some melted chocolate to help it stay in place. thumbs_up.gif

I haven't been able to order the molds yet, so I went to Michaels and found the daisy and flower molds there. I wanted to try it out before I bought the expensive ones. The mold was in the soap mold section, and it wasn't quite like the ones on 3Dmolds because there are made by LifeOfTheParty. But they were the firmer plastic molds and it had 5 cavities on it, but only 2 were round and were perfect for the oreos. I made them and my 16 year old promptly approved (boy can that kid eat!). Since I had the 40% off coupon the mold was only $1.67, but again only 2 cavities were for oreos, the others were square and rectangle.

I hope to order from 3D soon now that I know these are soooo easy to do.
I learn so many cool things from this site! Thanks for sharing icon_smile.gif

katskakes, they are probably back-logged because of all the people from this web-site ordering molds!

Found another reason to love the molds this afternoon -- When I opened the cookie bag, a third of the cookies were broken, cracked, or otherwise not in good shape for dipping, but worked well in the molds.

I Recieved my molds today. They sent me an extra mold as a freebie. i ordered the apple blossom and ribbon (for a sids fundraier in April) and i got the heart free. i'm sure that will come in useful at valentine's day. maybe white chocolate and pink hearts....I ordeed less than a week ago so i didn't think that was too bad. they charged 8.25 in shipping was a little high, but at least i got a free mold out of it icon_biggrin.gif

uhm, are the square and rectangle big enough to hold an oreo?

if so, what's the problem w/ an extra helping (dose) of chocolate???

no chocoholic would complain! icon_rolleyes.gif

Yup Doug, they are big enough. I noticed the wafer cookie would fit in the rectangle nicely icon_rolleyes.gif

Just a quick question....
I have been doing chocolates forever and can't seem to get these to pop out of the molds easily. This first batch I didn't thin the chocolate but am I nuts - I have to sort of push them out which mars the fronts...

Anybody have a tip?

(BTW< love the molds from 3Dmolds - came fast!)

Thanks icon_smile.gif

I lay a clean dish cloth on the counter, flip the molds over and bang them on the dish cloth. They come out easily and the dishcloth keeps them from getting marked up, HTH.

Make sure the chocolate is completely set. They pop out best when they are COLD. HTH.

Just thought I'd add another compliment for 3dmolds.com (now www.spinningleaf.com). I am absolutely thrilled with them. In the comments section of the checkout, I asked them to please include the big heart mold as my free mold, and ta-da! They came through on it! I was totally expecting them to just give me whatever mold was most available but they actually did what I had asked! LOL icon_surprised.gif
I also ordered from choklitmolds.com and countrykitchensa.com; very pleased with both orders as well! thumbs_up.gif

I bought some really cute molds from candylandcrafts.com and made my first fancy oreos and they were a hit. They sell the molds for $1.99 each but I could only find one cute set. They have a flower, butterfly and lips. I posted pics of the coookies I made with them.

Please will someone tell me what all the fuss is about chocolate covered Oreo cookies.

Doesn't Nabisco already make these?

(Please don't flame me, I really just don't get it. Seriously - I don't get it! In my mind I might as well just buy the cake at the grocery store also and bring it home to decorate it the same as these cookies. Honestly, I don't get what the fuss is about.) I'm so confused. icon_confused.gif

yes...can buy them predipped.....

B U T ....

are they predipped in premium chocolate like Ghiradelli, etc. -- NO (sorry, but what most companies call chocolate -- esp. the mass merchandise stuff, is just sweet brown junk)

do they come with interesting designs on them like crosses, hearts, etc. suitable for weddings and special parties -- NO

do they come in custom colors to match the theme/scheme of the party -- NO

so -- that's where we all come in with our CUSTOM dipped oreos

from a baker's point of view, it's the fun of decorating and creating different designs that make people happy. from a customer's point of view, sure, you can get a cake, cookies or oreos in a box, from the store, but isn't it more special when someone puts care and thought into something special for you? does nabisco care if you want their cookies for a special occasion? probably not? can they (or will they) make personalized chocolate covered oreos for your shower or birthday or holiday? nope.

you can get mass produced cookies from anywhere, but when someone puts time and effort into something special, just for you, somehow it just tastes better (if not just look better).

Thank you Doug and Jescapades for your quick reply. I do understand your point about decorating, but they are still Oreo's! Such a nasty little thing it shouldn't even be called a cookie! Might as well decorate a piece of cardboard.

Sooooooo I still just don't get it. Maybe I should pick up some Twinkies and make a wedding cake out of 'em. Can any of you on this thread convince me to eat one of those nasty little cookies? (Even if it is beautifully decorated?) I don't get it..........

She shakes her head and walks away, because nobody could convince her to eat one.........

some people do... and krispie creams, and those hostess cupcake things with the swirl on top and those coconut covered snowball things in abnormal colors, not found in nature. it's all a matter of taste. i can't stand chocolate covered candied orange peel, but i would never deny someone from making them, selling them or eating them.

some people like cake, some don't. (i love it, my dh doesn't) some people like oreos, some don't (i love them, my sister doesn't), some people like a twinkie wedding cake (i, personally think twinkies are nasty). that's what's wonderful about the world: to each his own!
