Fancy Oreos

I saw a tutorial over at Shindig Parties TO GO on how to make BEAUTIFUL chocolate covered oreos! I figured since I am venturing into party planning for hire, I would invest in the oreo trays and try a couple of sheets to see if it was worth the effort. These can be done in endless pattern and color combinations! I bought my molds from Spinning Leaf. They have some beeeeautiful molds, but I bought the standard ones (two of them) so that the tops would be smooth. They included a free sample mold to try too... a heart cookie mold! I'm sure I'll have fun with that one on Valentine's Day! The transfer sheets I ordered from Fancy Flours. I noticed after ordering them that Hobby Lobby offers a few now, but not even close to the variety you can order online. Here we go! Melt the disks and fill the cavities with about two spoons of chocolate.

Press gently down on the double stuffed oreos.

Spoon a bit more chocolate on top and level with an offset spatula.

The bottoms don't have to be perfect. Put it in the fridge for 10 minutes.

Cut a strip of your transfer sheet. Make sure the rough side is up, and lay it on a piece of parchment, on top of a baking sheet.

Spread a thin layer of candy melts on it. Whatever color you choose will become your background color.

After 5-10 minutes it is firm enough to cut, but not so solid that it will crack. I used a biscuit cutter from my Williams Sonoma set. It's slightly smaller than the oreos. Push hard, and when you lift up, this is what you get. The plastic backing stays on the tray.

Here is the other design I chose.

After 10 minutes in the fridge, pop out your oreos on wax paper. Literally, you just push them out. Look at how smooth and beautiful they are!

Then you simply apply a small amount of the melted candy that you used on the transfer sheet, to the back of your circle, and place it on your oreo. Stick those babies in the fridge again to seal the deal!

I'm so glad I tried these!! They look fake, they're so pretty! I wish my pinks matched, but I had no control over that. There's only one shade of pink candy melts and the pink dots came as-is too.

I can't wait to make these again for another party!!
