These are tiny chocolate covered oreos. I was looking for more soap molds and I saw these frogs. Thought they were darling and figured I could put some tiny oreos in them. Sure enought it worked. TFL

Fairytale, I am soooo impressed! That is just a great cco!!!! I love the little ?warts? on him. I will have to go look at Michaels for more molds now! thumbs_up.gif
It seems to me that you ALWAYS (and I mean ALWAYS!) break the mold (no pun intended icon_lol.gif

thumbs_up.gifhaha!! Those are adorable!!! What a fun idea! I have to learn to look at things differently. I would have just walked right by that and thought "Oh, what a cute SOAP mold!" Not, "Wow! I could make a kick a$$ cookie out of that!" hahaha!! Really cute!

Those are great! What a CUTE party favor for my daughter's birthday! I have to make sure I go look at the soap molds more.

One question, you say that you used "tiny oreos". Can you expand on that as well for me. You didn't use the regular or double-stuffed?

Thanks much!!

Yep, those are them. Thanks for posting them. You can also get a mini peanutbutter cookie that would probably be good. Also those little Ritz mini cookies. Their just adorable.

Thank you! I did spot them at the grocery store last night so I know what you were talking about. I'm going to Michael's today to pick up the mold and give them a shot!

Another question since I haven't seen the mold up close yet, how many mini oreos did you put in the middle? Just one or did you stack a couple in there?

Thanks again!

HI !
These are the cutest!!
I am new to the cookie and the chocolate thing and trying to break out of cakes only. I am lost on how these work. I have done 1 chocolate mold- it was the high heel shoe, hollow that I made. It was a pain! Could someone explain the steps to this? Like do you dip the oreo first then pour chocolate into the mold? Then attach? Or am I way off??
Thanks for helping me learn!! icon_smile.gif

Since the mold is shallow, I only put in one oreo, but you could probably take the top off another one and it might also fit.

To make these, I poured the eyes first, then let that set up in the freezer. Then poured part of the head and let that set up. I then placed the Oreo in the center and filled in around it, up to the top of the mold. To finish it off, I dotted the eyes so that they had pupils, places some more dots, and applied some luter dust. (Don't apply luster dust when the chocolate it still sweating or the dust will streak.

Glad you guys like it. No, that's not the mold, but I sure wish I had that one. It's a better than mine. The one I used had 3 frogs and two trutles. I'll be it's just a little version.

Please everyone, be sure and post your frogs. I can hardly wait to see them.

Those are the cutest things! I have the mold jescapades has. I got it at the local cake shop but I never dreamed of using it for mini oreos. Now I'll have to check all my molds to see if they are big enough for mini oreos!!! Thanks Fairytale.

I orginally got this mold to do Harry Potter chocolate frogs!
