I’ve wanted to try my hand at chocolate covered Oreos for some time now. They’ve been showing up in my pinterest feed a lot and combined with a burning desire to also try out chocolate transfer sheets, I knew I just had to give these a go.
Now, they do require a little bit of preparation with the purchase of Oreo molds, chocolate candy melts and chocolate transfer sheets but after you’ve laid your hands on these items, the actual chocolate transfer and coating method is deceptively simple (for those in Australia I got my molds, melts and chocolate transfers from Cakes Around Town).
What you end up with is an extremely impressive looking and tasting chocolate accompaniment to serve with coffee at your next dinner party, and you hardly have to lift a finger.
My first batch were a complete success so I took them to work with me the next day. The looks of awe on the faces of my colleagues caused me to utter guiltily “No, really, they are so simple to make!”.
CHOCOLATE COVERED OREOS
WHITE CHOCOLATE AND RASPBERRY
Super white chocolate candy melts 300g
12 Freeze dried raspberries
Chocolate transfer sheet
1 packet Golden Oreos
Mint chocolate candy melts 300g
Chocolate transfer sheet
1 packet Original Oreos
For the white chocolate and raspberry covered oreos, using a chef ring the size of your Oreo mold, draw six circles on the back of the chocolate transfer sheet (I had a mold that fit six Oreos) and cut into six circles. Place a chocolate transfer circle in the bottom of each mold with the printed sugar facing up.
Place 1/2 of the white candy melts into a microwave safe bowl. Microwave at 50% power for 1 minute, then stir well. Continue to microwave for 15 to 30 second intervals, stirring well after each interval, until smooth.
Half fill the molds with melted chocolate and crumble a freeze dried raspberry into each mold. Place a golden Oreo into each mold and press down until the Oreo sits in the centre of the cavity. Cover the oreos with more white chocolate and level the tops of the molds with a silicone spatula.
Pop in the fridge until set (about 10 minutes) then push out of the mold and carefully peel off the transfer sheet.
Follow the same method for making the mint chocolate covered Oreos, leaving out the freeze dried raspberry step.
Serve with coffee and tea at the end of a meal.

That's so gorgeous! I love it when low-brow food gets made into high-brow food.
wow they look amazing!
These look great! What a terrific idea. I've seen these around, too, but haven't given them that much thought. My mistake – these are wonderful. Thanks.

Those are so beautiful I almost wouldn't want to eat them. They would be great at a baby or wedding shower – so festive!
These are the prettiest Oreos that I've ever seen. Also, I love how your coffee cups echo the patterns on the chocolate… such a beautifully styled post!
What gorgeous cookies!!! "Almost" too pretty to eat! Lovely pictures!

My goodness they are so pretty! But you should have told your work friends you stayed up all night painting them, ha!

How fun are these! Now, these are not your little kid Oreos. These are definitely glam grown-up ones. 😉
Ooh I just love these! They look much better than the original cookie!
So do I!
Thanks Chocolate Suze 🙂
I think its the transfer sheets that really make them. Adding the freeze dried raspberries to the Golden Oreos was a last minute thought but really elevated it!
True! I'm thinking of making them again at Christmas for when friends drop over.
Thanks Connie! The glasses were a fluke… I keep buying things that I like the moment I see them (very expensive habit) so I just happened to have these glasses on hand!
…Almost! 😉 Thanks for dropping by!
Haha… my mistake Christine. Next time I'll tell everyone a slaved over them 🙂
Thanks Caroline! They are most definitely not little kid Oreos. But they are still nostalgic enough that the adults love them.
Thanks John. I couldn't believe how quick they were to knock up too… and no actual cooking involved!
Apologies for my ignorance, but where do you get the printed sugar sheets?
These are so darling!
Hi Tracie, it depends where you are. In Australia I get them from http://www.cakesaroundtown.com.au/ and have them delivered. If you aren't in Australia, just google "chocolate transfer sheets" and see who sells them in your area.
I actually found this googling chocolate transfer sheets and seen this picture and had to click on it. Brilliant yet simple! I have a question. When you melt the chocolate in the microwave and after it is melted do you add more chocolate bars to temper the chocolate? Does it set up without tempering the chocolate?
