I bought a bunch of cookie molds from them when they had a huge sale. Some of them are square shaped and i assumed that the oreo cookies would fit, but they don't! It's very upsetting.
I'm not sure what to use them for now. They are way to big for chocolate, and i am only interested in using these for things that can last awhile (not truffle or cake) which is why i really wanted them for oreos.
Any suggestions?

What kind of cookie molds are you talking about? Do you have a link or pictures? Do you mean you intended to make home made oreos in them? Or did you want to press oreos into them.

were they specifically stated as being for oreo cookies? or were they soap or other molds?

example: the baby blocks are the only square ones specifically stated as being for oreos, but none of the chocolate molds would work as 1/4 in too small.

of course you could use MINI oreos in the smaller molds. And you could do more traditional candies filled with nuts or ganache.

The molds say they are cookie molds. They are the ones that you fill halfway with chocolate, stick an oreo in them, and fill with more chocolate.
The oreos do not fit in the baby block ones.

I use the mini oreos in those and also in some of the other ones, I have problems with getting the cookies out after they firm up. I even put them in the freezer for a while and still had to pry them out. I then have messed up cookies, do you know a way of getting them out without breaking the cookie?

I've never had a problem with the molds from Spinning Leaf. (Wilton molds on the other hand!!!!)

They do have a great customer service, so give them a call. I'm sure they'd be more than happy to help.

What kind of chocolate do you use? I use the molds all the time with the Guittard chocolate candy melts from my local cake supply shop. The cookies pop out beautifully after 10 minutes in the freezer. I'd be interested to hear what kind of chocolate others use.

candy melts by wilton, do you think that has something to do with it. Do you coat your molds first, I didn't

Not sure about the Wilton candy melts. I don't coat the the molds with anything. I have also used the cheap almond bark coating sold at Wal-mart (doesn't taste as good to me) with no problems.

humm, I just don't understand, I love the designs and the taste of the cookies, sure would hate no being able to use them. I painted the design with the candy melts and then let it dry. Then I poured the melted chocolate and then put the cookie and then poured chocolate on top. They looked so cute from what I could see on the chunks. lol

Are you using regular Oreos? I found that the double stuff oreos don't fit in the molds. And some no-name brands won't fit either.

nope, plain old oreos and they don't fit. I thought maybe the store brand ones would fit as they are slightly smaller, but they don't.
I actually tried breaking up the cookies into chunks and sinking them in but there is so much chocolate (i use couveture and temper it) that you can break your teeth trying to bite into the darn things.
I want to find something to do with them because i like them very much.

Check with the company. Perhaps you were just sent the wrong molds. (I've got at least 10 of the molds from them, including the mini Oreo & the Cakester molds). They are a much better quality than any others I have found.

I have nothing but good to say about Spinning Leaf. Call them or email them or whatever. But definitely contact them. They are awesome. I usually wait til the chocolate sets in the mold and then put in the freezer for approximately 7 minutes. They pop right out of the mold.

I agree. I love their molds which is why i own almost all of the cookie ones. I'm going to try it out one more time with the oreos and a different store brand, and if the cookies don't fit, i'll give them a ring.

That's so weird that the Oreos didn't fit! The only time I had a problem was when I used a brand other than Oreo. I can imagine how frustrated you must've been....get a new toy....want to try it out....doesn't work!!!!

I bought oreo molds at my local cake store and they told me to buy the oreos they sell that are made for vending machines because they are a bit smaller and work better in the molds. I didn't so I'm not sure if it's true but thought I would mention it.
