Oreo® Cookie Embed Chocolate Mold Instructions
By Bob Sherman
This article shows the basic procedure for using our line of Oreo® sandwich cookie embed molds. These are as simple as it gets and everyone loves to eat them. Ive shown a simple mold painted cookie embed here, but these may be made all one color as well.
Many of the items you may need can be ordered directly from this page for your convenience.
PLEASE NOTE!! - Although chocolate making is relatively safe for the entire family to participate, adult supervision is required.
I prefer to use chocolate wafers designed for home molding chocolate. My preferred brand is Merckens which works well with all chocolate molding projects and tastes great.
For a small project like this either melting method may be used.
Double Boiler - See Double Boiler Usage Instructions.
A microwave may also be used but care must be taken not to overheat the chocolate.
- Place the chocolate in a microwave safe bowl.
- Heat for 30 seconds.
- Remove and stir.
- Repeat steps 2 and 3 until the chocolate is creamy.
- Check to make sure the temperature is no higher than 160 degrees F. before pouring. Pouring chocolate molds hotter than this will destroy the mold. Do not place the thermometer in the microwave!

Step By Step Instructions
No modification to the mold is needed. Just make sure it is clean and dry.
Optional - The raised design looks very good when painted with colored chocolate. Mold painting instructions can be found here if you are interested.
Melt some chocolate and fill the mold approximately 1/4 full. Rap it against the counter a few times to dislodge any trapped air bubbles.
Press a sandwich cookie into the chocolate - try to keep it centered.
Fill the mold and place it in your freezer until the chocolate de molds easily.
Note: Check it often as freezing molds with embedded cookies will cause them to crack if left in the freezer too long.
The finished chocolate.
