Pink Chocolate Covered Oreos (and a surprise!)

Nothing is sweeter than chocolate, especially when it's a pretty shade of pink.  I'm planning a candy buffet for my wedding and am going to include chocolate covered Oreos.  Recently, I spent an afternoon making about 60 of these beauties and have some fool proof tips to help you make your own treats.

Since I needed to make a lot of Oreos, I used several Oreo cookie molds that I purchased on Amazon to help the process move a little bit faster.  In the past, I've melted the chocolate wafers in the microwave or double boiler, but found the Wilton Chocolate Pro Electric Melting Pot to be a miracle for making candy and melting chocolate.  It melts quickly and evenly and has a "keep warm" feature that makes life easy!  Double Stuf Oreos are such a fun treat, too!


After the chocolate melted, I used a spoon to fill each space of the chocolate mold about 1/3 full.


Place an Oreo in each space and cover the remaining space entirely with melted chocolate.


Make sure that there are no bubbles or empty spaces in the candy mold by gently tapping it on the counter.  I also used a spatula to remove any excess chocolate and make sure that the bottom of the chocolate was even and flat.


Place the chocolate mold in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes.  The cookies pop right out of the mold easily!  If you're wondering how much chocolate to buy, a bag of chocolate wafers from the local craft store makes about a dozen Double Stuf chocolate covered Oreos.  The process to make about 60 Oreos took about 2 hours with cooling time included.


And in other exciting news, I'm hosting a giveaway on my Facebook page for Maryland Pink and Green fans.  Visit my page to enter to win a chevron printed dress!  So pretty and perfect for your summer wardrobe.
