Mother's Day: DIY Chocolate Covered Oreo Flowers + FREE Printable Gift Tags



Remember these decorated Oreo cookies I shared here? Well, imagine my excitement when I discovered the fabulous and super funky cookie molds from Spinning Leaf?!! 

Check out the pretty, super easy flower cookies I made for Mother's Day + grab yourself some FREE printable gift tags to add to your handmade (and de-lish) gift!

Working with chocolate-transfer sheets can be tricky, but the molds offer a really practical and fun way to create a chocolate-covered Oreo masterpiece without the fuss. And they have so many designs, I can't wait to try them for every Holiday!! :)




DIY Chocolate Covered Oreo Cookie Flowers

Ingredients and Tools:

* Oreo Cookies
* Flower Chocolate Molds from Spinning Leaf
* Red and Pink candy melts
* White Chocolate
* Heat-proof bowls
* Food-safe, clean paintbrush
* Food-safe Gift Boxes
* FREE Printable Mother's Day Gift Tags




Directions:

Step 1 - Melt white chocolate in the microwave at 30 second intervals. Using  a food-safe clean paintbrush, paint the center of each mold with white chocolate. Place in fridge to set for a couple of minutes.

Step 2 - Meanwhile, melt candy melts in the microwave again in 30 second intervals until fully melted. Stir between each segment. Add a little flavorless cooking oil (like sunflower) if the mixture is to stiff. Add a tablespoon of the candy melt to the molds and tap the mold to level the chocolate.

Step 3 - Place an Oreo cookie inside each mold cavity.

Step 4 - Cover with more candy melt, ensuring the cookie is fully submerged. Tap the mold a few times on the counter to get rid of any air bubbles and level the candy melts. Fill to the top of each cavity and scrape off excess with a palette knife or spatula. Set in fridge for 30 minutes or until firm. 

Then all you have to do is take molds! 

PLEASE NOTE: The cookies came off quite easily by just turning the molds upside-down. I did use a little cooking oil to loosen my candy melts though - If you skipped this step, you may find you need to oil the molds lightly with cooking spray beforehand.
