Well I like to experiment, so this year for Thanksgiving I decided to try using chocolate transfer sheets. Of course chocolate dipped Oreos with some drizzles look great, but I like a challenge. I’ve included a few tips that I learned along the way that will help make things a little easier.
What you’ll need:
Melted Milk Chocolate
Chocolate Oreo Mold (I bought mine from fancyflours.com*)
Chocolate Transfer Sheets (I bought mine from fancyflours.com*)
Circle Paper Punch (slightly smaller than mold**)
Take the chocolate transfer sheet and place a piece of thin paper on the dull side (this is the chocolate side). Place in paper punch and punch out circle. I found the extra sheet of paper helps keep chocolate from clogging up the paper punch.
Place punched chocolate transfer circle, shiny side down, in mold. Yea, I did this incorrectly a couple of times and ended up with the chocolate transfer on the mold. No worries, you don’t have to clean it out to reuse, just put transfer circle in correctly next time and the next batch will come out perfect.
Spoon more chocolate over Oreo until covered. Tap again on counter to remove air bubbles and to make sure the chocolate has gotten down the sides of the cookie – this will also smooth out the chocolate. Place in refrigerator for 10 minutes or until chocolate is firm. Turn over mold and pop out cookies. They look great, but remember you still have to remove the clear plastic from the chocolate transfer.
Using a sharp knife, carefully lift up edge of plastic and peel off.

**I originally started out with a 2″ hole punch. This was slightly large for my mold…you can see my edges on top of cookies are rounded and not sharp. Now I have a 1.73″ punch. I’ll try this again at Christmas and let you know how it works out.
Quick update. The smaller punch worked great. See my results…
