I saw this post earlier last week and decided to order from SpinningLeaf. I am very pleased with their product and with their shipping. The plastic is so sturdy, these molds will last a lifetime.

I made the Oreo's last night...very easy and every one loved them.

This may sound like a silly question but...the molds with designs in them like the footprint or dragonfly etc..do you have to brush that colored chocolate in first, let dry and then put in the dark chocolate?
I saw this some time ago and think they are fabulous. I just wonder how time consuming they are to do. Are they easy to release from the molds? How long does it take for it to set up?

Ok.. Just melt your choc add some to the mold (plan or design ) add the oreo, add more melted choc to cove the oreo. Stick in the freezer to harden and pop put on parchment /wax paper ! Thats it super simple ! You will have to do a few to know how much choc you need to add before and after you add the oreo,and to see about how long it takes to harden.Im sure its a little different for each person ! I will say that after you add the 1st melted choc to tap the mld on the counter a few times to make sure your design ( if any ) is filled in and I also tap mine after its all added to get out any air bubbles.

One more question..When looking at the tutorial it looks easy enought to use these molds but how on earth can you 'paint' the design on some of these molds..eg..snowflakes, small flowers or dots. It would seem very difficult to color such a small design with so much detail even with a small brush.

You can either paint the design and let it harden, then add the rest of the melted choc ,cookie etc ,or after its all done you can then add the detail ! And yes it can be a pain . But even if you add it before you can hold it up and look through the mold from the bottom and see if you like what you have before you finish it.

I have seen people put them 2 to a little candy box with some shredded colored paper to match the event.And also in a small cookie bag ,again 2 cookies back to back so the design shows on both sides also with matching paper ribbon etc !
I think it depends on the event what you could come up with . Somthing ( container ) that goes with the theme of where they are ending up.
Maybe plain Oreos with persons name on it as a place marking just set on each plate to ?

I just tried to order online...I get the response that their security certificate is no good...not secure...when I try to go to "checkout"....so I guess I'll be phoning...what a drag!! At least maybe they'll be able to give me an idea about shipping...will let you know...

Just checked..I'll have to wait till monday...they're closed now I think...

hi everyone! i have a question? someone had asked how much to charge for them, but noone wrote a response. i am curious now cuz i seen them on dylans candy bar for 9 decorated pkgd for 24.00 and that just seems like an awful lot. icon_surprised.gif

I have only seen a price one time and someone said they sell them for 2/$3.00. I dont know what that included or anything though ,just plane or a drizzle or bagged or what ! I would also like an Idea!

post #53 of 347

thnx for that info tho fiddlestcks, your always so helpful!!! i hope someone who has sold them can tell us cuz i am curious. i mean if you think about it a bag of oreos is at most four dollars and of course the choco and pckging, but that just seems like an awful lot to still charge, 9/24.00. hehe or maybe i am just cheap, lol!!! i am making some soon for a baby shower, so i will post them and hopefully won't get to harsh of comments, hehehe, i love constructive criticism tho, for sure! i love fall!!! icon_smile.gif

Your Welcome Im sure you will do great! I always try to by the oreo,s when they are $2.00 a bag ! Like right now the halloween ones are that price so I buy some and freeze them If I know I will need them , or anytime the reg ones go on sale through the yr I try to buy a couple bags to freeze just in case .You should figure out your cost and go from there with a price that will make it seem worthwhile to you.

YES! I've ordered from them a couple of times. They are excellent! I've ordered 3 molds at a time an have recieved a free mold each time! Fast shipping!

There is another thread like this one. I charge $3.00 a piece. It does seem like alot but they are alot of work if you are painting them etc.

For pricing, it might help to know that they cost about .25 to.30 each to make (depending on the type of chocolate you use). I think it took a 2.5 lb. block of Ghirardelli's dipping chocolate to make 52 Oreos. I always use the DoubleStuff (it'll take less chocolate, but you'll get fewer Oreos per package).

Yes, strictly cookie and chocolate. And the price is if the cookies are NOT bought on sale.
