A Simple Treat that Looks Hard

These cookies are easy and fun to make with the kids. The kids help me with these at every holiday and they are always a hit. I was lucky today when I went t the store that the mold was already on clearance, if I had know that before I checked out I probably would have bought more mold to speed up the process. Regular price for the mold is just under $3. I spent $15 for all of the ingredient and supplies for this project and will make over 100 cookies.


The ones featured in the pictures were for Easter but I have molds for several holidays at home. I try to buy them just before the holiday or right after to get a good price on the molds. If I can find them for $1 a piece I buy a few to make the process speed up.

How To Make Chocolate Covered Cookies

The first thing I do is pick my initial color. For the first batch I am going to use yellow. I let my oldest pick the initial color. We place some yellow chocolate pieces into a ziploc bag, I like to use the ones with slides for this project because they close easier and I will be opening them and closing them a lot. You can use any type of plastic bag you like. I melt the chocolate in the microwave using intervals of 45 second to 1 minute and "mixing" the chocolate by squeezing the bag.

I then take a corner and snip off a small piece. I then squirt the chocolate into the mold slowly and tap the mold on the counter to even out the chocolate. I only go to the edge of the image in the mold. I am going to do two colors on this cookie. I then put the mold into the freezer for about 5 minutes as I prepare the next color.

We have picked pink for the second color for this batch. I start to melt the chocolate, I will need slightly more chocolate for the second color because it will cover the cookie.

Adding the Second Color

I start to add the pink chocolate into the mold. I fill it about halfway and then press the oreo into the mold.

I put the mold back into the freezer until the chocolate is solidified. i tend to leave them for about ten minutes while I run around one room in the house and do a mad dash clean up and then return to my regularly scheduled cookie making.

Take them out of the freezer, flip it over, and pop them out. Beautiful Cookies perfect for an Easter gathering.

I personally don't like the mint oreos but my husband and kids do. so I had some with mint oreos and some with regular ones. I make cookies in various color combinations including chocolate and white chocolate.


Holiday Treats

There are many holiday treats that can be created and this is just one that I like to make. My friends always think these are fabulous. My favorite are the white chocolate covered Oreos.
