Valentine’s Day is just around the corner so how about sharing these chocolate covered mini Oreos with your loved ones! This is one of the easiest to make as there is no detail to fill in – the writing is imprinted on each mold – a total of 3 molds with 6 different sayings per mold are available.
Many have heard of “Sweethearts”, the small candy hearts printed with a message. These are an American candy made by New England Confectionery Company or NECCO and are available around Valentine’s Day. I certainly don’t remember the messages being so smudged or blurry – only about 1/4 were readable from a box and even those (below) are not too clear.
Anyways, these chocolate covered Oreo hearts taste much better, you can read the message and they are chocolate after all. The colored hearts are white chocolate.
Valentine Mini Chocolate Covered Oreo Hearts
- assorted wafers
- mini Oreo cookies
- mini Valentine heart molds (there are 3 sheets available and each sheet has 6 molds with different sayings)
Microwave each wafer color individually. Start out with 30-50 seconds; repeat and then only 10 more seconds if needed. I don’t let the wafers melt entirely as I will stir them with a spoon to finish melting the wafers. Some colors have a tendency to get thick and not melt good; this time it was the red and pink.
Spoon a layer of chocolate in one or two hearts at a time; gently drop in a mini Oreo; then cover completely with more of the same color. Tap the mold to remove any air bubbles. You will note that if you do not add enough chocolate with the first layer, the Oreo cookie may show through. You can see this in a couple of my cookies.
