Chocolate Covered Oreos have been a permanent fixture on desert tables now, and I usually get my designer Oreos from either of my two favorite vendors: Sweeties by Kim or Sweet Temptations. But for this handmade party I styled  for HGTV, I forgot to order in advance and had to make my own...

Mine are nooooo way near as fabulous as the ones from the vendors above, but they tasted pretty yummy, and very handy when you're in a pinch! ;)

How to Make Chocolate Covered Oreos + FREE Printables

It's the first time I attempted these, and basically winged the methodology, so there may well be a much easier way to make them - If you have any tips, pls feel free to leave them in the comments below.

Ingredients and Materials needed:

* White and Dark Melting Chocolate
*  Oreo Cookies
* Chocolate Transfer Sheets - From most baking suppliers
* Flexible straight-edged cupcake tray (I hear there are Oreo chocolate molds, so use that if you have one)

Directions:

1. Melt chocolate over a double-boiler (bain marie) or in 30 second increments in the microwave until fully melted, stirring in between. Meanwhile, using a circle template cut a circle out of the chocolate transfer sheet to fit on the bottom of the cupcake pan. Doesn't have to be perfect. 

2. Place the circles inside the cupcake tray. TIP: Avoid handling the sheet with warm hands as the designs might smudge. Then pour a thin layer (about 0.5 cm or 1/4 of  an inch) into each cavity to completely cover the transfer sheet. 

3. At this point I added the Oreo - But DON'T do that otherwise you risk disturbing and smudging the transfer sheet underneath. Best to freeze this chocolate layer without the cookie for a few minutes until set (as I found out with my next batch). Once the first layer is frozen, then add your Oreo cookie on top.

4. Cover completely with the rest of your melted chocolate, making sure it's as level as possible. Tap the tray gently on your work surface to get rid of any air bubbles. If you are using a proper Oreo mold, then at this stage wipe the tops of the mold clean with a palette knife.

I'm very impatient and put the whole lot in the fridge to set for a few minutes, but setting at room temperature is said to ensure the shininess of your chocolate.

Then simply unmold the Oreos and display on your desserts tables, or package beautifully as shown below:

    1. Hi Reine, I haven't tried, but think that the transfer sheet might sink into the chocolate and smudge? Plus, the 'bottom' of the pan has a more smooth surface than the top' if that makes any sense?

      But if you try, please come back and let us know how it goes? Would love to hear if there's a better way of doing these! ;)

    1. HI, if you get a flexible mold like I did, it's no a problem at all, they fall right off. The transfer paper on the bottom also acts kinda like a "parchment" paper, so they don't stick at all.
