I need help with finding a bulk supplier for boxes that will hold 1/2 dozen and 1 dozen chocolate covered oreos.

Anyone have any referrals to an on-line store?

Thanks!

I use candy boxes. i get them from CK. 1/2 pound box hold 6 cookies, 1 lb box hold 1 doz. Be sure to check the measurements of the box, though.

Thanks Leah, that's exactly the answer I was looking for!
I have a feeling this order may not happen. She is looking for 100 dz, teal colored with a custom stenciled logo on top in white chocolate and wants to pay $12/dozen.
I am not the type of person who asks general pricing questions.......I know what I charge and will not do this for less!

I've been just dying to buy these gorgeous boxes.....wonder if they'd work for you? Might not be a good price though for what you'd need?

Those are awesome boxes, thanks! I have a few customers that would be willing to pay that price to stand out from the rest of their friends!!

Wow! She agreed to my per dozen price! She did lower her order to 75 dozen to fit into her budget.

One last question........
What is the best way to make teal colored chocolate to cover the oreos? I read you can mix blue/white/yellow chips to achieve it, but what about starting with a white base and adding teal coloring?

Those look really nice! Did you end up using boxes for chocolates?

Thanks! She wanted slightly bigger boxes than the CK 1/2 lb ones for her labels so I ordered a bigger 1/2 lb box from Papermart.
