icon_smile.gif The local elementary school that my kids attended is having their 'Fall Festival' tommorrow night....I usually donate things for their Sweet Shop.....

I got out my plain front Oreo cookie molds, the ones that you melt the chocolate and pour in, add cookie, cover with chocolate....

I melted some Ghiradelli chocolate and made a pan of brownies......I scooped out a piece of brownie, made it into a 'cookie' added it to the mold and covered in chocolate....TADA! It looks like choc. covered Oreos! thumbs_up.gif I am boxing them 2 per box, and they are 'gourmet brownie bites'......they are so good! I would share a pic, but dh has my camera with him..he's hunting. icon_rolleyes.gif

Anyway, wanted to share another use for those great cookie molds! thumbs_up.gificon_biggrin.gif

as a vegetarian and an animal rights activist, the word"hunting" makes me cringe......

But, that aside.....thats a great idea for the oreo molds. Thanks for sharing.

that sounds so good. I'm going to have to try that. I was actually going to post this same question since christmas is going to be here before we know it and I like to do more then just the oreos. Thanks for posting this and the brownies are a great idea!

I purchase my molds from spinningleaf.com. They are a wonderful company to order from. Fast shipping and excellent customer service! icon_lol.gif

question... could you use chocolate chip cookie bar scraps? Hmmm... would you need a "binding" if they were chewy enough to form? Hmmmm... my mouth is watering. I think I'll try that tonight.

THANKS!

you can also use them for cake balls, but they wouldnt be balls anymore!

GeminiRJ Posted 29 Oct 2008 , 7:35pm

I've often thought "cake ball" mix would be good in the molds. Mix thecake scrapes with BC, smoosh into a cake pan, freeze,cut to fit (or use a cookie cutter), and treat like an Oreo. I've just never gotten around to it.

Thanks for the great idea, countrycakes! I don't have the molds yet, but would like to get some....especially since those chocolate covered brownines sound so awesome!!

I've made the chocolate covered oreos and actually made the chocolate covered brownies tonight. Do you all make them to the thickness of the mold? It seems so thick. Do you have a thick chocolate shell or do you have a special way of making it thinner? I'm actually kind of dissapointed with it. The product works fine the chocolate just seems to thick. My husband who loves chocolate even said he didn't care for the chocolate covered oreos. Is there a special way to use these. Thanks for the help.

This is why I only use DoubleStuff Oreos in the molds. If using the regular ones, there's no reason you have to fill the mold completely to the top. Just use enough chocolate to cover the Oreo and call it good.

I need to know, how do you guys get these out of the molds?? I am in no way a small, frail person and I really had to push on those suckers to get them out. And of course some broke. Did I not let them chill enough? Should I have waited for them to warm up a bit before unmolding? Is it because I used chocolate chips in stead of melting chocolate? Help!!

fiddlesticks Posted 10 Nov 2008 , 12:26am

I would guess that you didnt let them set up enough! I stick mine in the freeezer till set and then they pop right out, if they dont want to come out I stick them back in the freezer for another min or so !

Skirt Posted 10 Nov 2008 , 6:14pm

Thanks! As soon as I get a chance, I'll try again! icon_smile.gif
