Valentine Oreos for Your Sweetie

The chocolate covered Oreos have been very popular on my blog and with Valentine’s Day just around the corner I thought I would make these early so fellow cooks/chefs would have a chance to make them.  My best source for the molds is spinningleaf.com.

  • candy melts; pink, red, chocolate and white
  • small tipped paint brushes to paint the design
  • valentine molds

First melt the candy in the microwave beginning with  50 seconds on full power, then increments of 30 seconds until the candy is smooth; stir after each time.  The pink is ready to go in the microwave, the chocolate has been microwaved for 50 seconds and the red is ready to use.

The hearts have been painted and allowed to harden in the refrigerator or freezer (the molds are turned over).

The next step is to pour a layer of melted chocolate in the bottom of each mold and then press an Oreo cookie into the soft chocolate.

The last step is to cover the cookie entirely with melted chocolate.  I tap the mold lightly on the counter and if necessary run a toothpick around the outside of the cookies to get rid of any air bubbles.  Refrigerate or freeze until solid.  Pop the molds out and store in a covered container.  These cookies keep well for a long time.

If you want a smaller cookie try these mini molds which use the mini Oreos.

All bagged and ready to give as gifts.  The bags are 3×5-inches and some of them are plain and others have little hearts on them.  I used ribbon that was 12-inches long to tie up each bag.

For additional Oreo cookies/molds search “Oreos” on my site and you will find all of the different ones I have made.

  1. How do you pop the molds, I would imagine the red hearts get stuck in the top and dont come out, or are the molds silicon? they look beautiful but I wouldnt have the patience, loved one or not, or I might have patience to make one 🙂

    • Once the chocolate is hardened they pop right out and are always near perfect! You can see from my pictures that nothing got stuck and no they are not made out of silicone. For me they are fun to make and people often request a certain theme. Very easy to do…
