I was just introduced to this fun and easy way to decorate cookies and cakes earlier this year (I should say last year). So far I have only used them on chocolate covered Oreo cookies. The designs I have are footballs, gingerbread men, Christmas stockings, Mardi Gras, yellow ducks, jack-o-lanterns, ladybugs and flowers.
I also have a number of posts on Oreo cookie molds and the cookies themselves. Instead of listing every post, just search “oreos” and you will see what I have.
Of course the big game is coming up soon so these are a great dessert to feed your crowd. I received my Masters from the University of Michigan and being an alumni and still living in Ann Arbor I enjoy watching college football, especially when my home team plays. Pro football is not high on my list but I do enjoy watching the Super Bowl. The commercials might have a lot to do with it 🙂
All you have to do is melt the chocolate and pour a thin layer in the bottom of a plain mold. Place an Oreo cookie in each well and pour more chocolate over the cookies to completely cover them. Tap on the counter to get rid of any air bubbles. I did use the football mold as well. Try to make it level with the top of each well. Cut out a square of chocolate transfer and carefully place the rough side down on the warm chocolate. The sheets average 11×15-inches and I got mine from fancyflours.com. Refrigerate or freeze until hardened. Remove the transfers and pop out the chocolate covered Oreo cookies. One thing good about these cookies is you can make them way ahead of time, just keep them in a covered container.
You can see below that it is better to use white chocolate as the design shows up better.
You can see the ladybugs better on the white chocolate.
The red and chocolate melts make this transfer shine!
You can see that the best color of chocolate for this transfer is chocolate!
Both white and chocolate look good.
