AUTUMN CHOCOLATE COVERED OREOS
Posted on September 04 2015
When the kids go back to school, and the first signs of fall appear, we get excited about making chocolate treats in our kitchen! These chocolate covered oreos are inspired by the colors of autumn in pretty shades of orange and purple.
Using a variety of chocolate colors, instead of just one, really amps up the wow factor! Follow our easy steps below to make your own delicious and beautiful chocolate covered oreos.
Melt your candy melts in the microwave, in a heat proof bowl, 30 seconds at a time stirring between intervals. Heat just until melted. Do not overheat! Pour each melted chocolate color into disposable decorating bags and secure with a rubber band. We used a 50/50 ratio of super white and orchid candy melts to make a shade of lavender.
Snip the tip of your decorating bags. Fill one cavity 1/3 of the way, press an oreo into place, then fill remaining cavity with a different color. Tap the mold lightly on a countertop to release any air bubbles. Repeat in the remaining cavities creating different color combinations.
If the chocolate in your decorating bags becomes too firm to work with you can pop the whole bag in the microwave for 15 seconds or so to remelt. Keep in mind that the decorating bags are not intended to be microwave safe so they could easily melt. This trick works wonderfully as long as you heat up carefully, only 15 seconds at a time.
Place your filled mold in the freezer for a few minutes. Once the chocolate has set flip the mold over and lightly tap to release your chocolate covered oreos. If they don't easily pop out they may need a few more minutes in the freezer.
You can store your chocolate covered oreos in an air tight container for up to a week. This is a great make ahead treat! We love serving these on a white plate or cake stand stacked nice an high. They are gorgeous!
