Chocolate Covered Oreos Tutorial: Supplies

Supplies You Will Need

  • Cookie Mold
  • Chocolate or Candy Wafers
  • DoubleStuff Oreo® Cookies
  • Optional
    • White Chocolate
    • Oil Based Candy Colorant
    • Colored Candy Wafers
    • Decorator Brush
    • Silicone Spatula
Chocolate Covered Oreos Tutorial: Melt Chocolate

Melt the Chocolate

Microwave Oven: Place coarsely chopped chocolate or candy wafers into a microwave safe bowl. Microwave at 50% power for 1 minute, then stir well. Continue to microwave for 15 to 30 second intervals, stirring well after each interval, until smooth.

Double Boiler: Place coarsely chopped chocolate or candy wafers in the double boiler over hot, not boiling, water. Stir until smooth.

Please note: For best results, do not overheat the chocolate, and avoid introducing moisture. Both these conditions will ruin the chocolate.

Chocolate Covered Oreos Tutorial: Paint Designs

Paint the Designs (optional)

Use your white chocolate as is, or color it using oil based candy colorants (do not use water based colorants), or use colored candy wafers.

Using a decorator brush, dab the white/colored chocolate into the mold designs. After filling each design, tap the mold onto the table to settle the chocolate, and remove any trapped air.

Tip: If you are making many chocolate covered Oreos®, you may want to substitute the decorator brush with a squeeze bottle, or cake decorator, to facilitate filling the mold designs.

Chocolate Covered Oreos Tutorial: Partially Fill

Partially Fill the mold

Fill the chocolate into the mold cavities, approximately 1/3 full. Tap the mold onto the table to settle the chocolate, and remove any trapped air.

Tip: If you've painted the designs, avoid remelting them by filling the cavities with chocolate that's as cool as possible, and tap the mold very gently as this can also cause the colors to bleed together.

Chocolate Covered Oreos Tutorial: Embed Cookies

Embed the Oreo® Cookies

Press the Oreo® cookie into the chocolate, and center it in the mold cavity, horizontally and vertically.

As you press the Oreo® into the mold cavity, the chocolate will rise up around the sides, embedding the cookie, and leaving only the top uncovered.

Chocolate Covered Oreos Tutorial: Top Off Mold

Top Off the Mold

Pour the chocolate over the embedded Oreo®, completely filling the mold, and covering the cookie.

Gently tap the mold onto the table to settle the chocolate, and remove any trapped air.

Chocolate Covered Oreos Tutorial: Level Chocolate

Level the Chocolate

If necessary, level the chocolate by scraping away the excess with a silicone spatula.

Chocolate Covered Oreos Tutorial: Unmold Chocolate Covered Oreos

Unmold Your Chocolate Covered Oreos®

After the chocolate has hardened, chill the mold in the refrigerator for approximately 10 minutes. Turn the mold upside down and press on the back of the cavity to release the chocolate covered Oreos®.
