I picked this up not even looking for it while out shopping the other day. It's for my favo...
Alex loves Oreos, he could and has sat and eaten an entire box with me. So I am looking to create a wedding favor made of chocolate covered oreos that are a bride and groom, or something along those lines. I found a few pictures as my inspiration and cute ways to package them. Overall, it seems like it would be a relatively inexpensive and yet personal wedding favor.
I did however attempt to make some around valentines day in a cookie mold I found at Michael's. But they didn't turn out so well and I did some research online and found that I was not waiting long enough for the chocolate to cool and therefore the heart design on the front broke and crumbled.
So now I have been looking for an easier (and still cheap) take on the whole thing.
There are several different ways to decorate chocolate covered oreos. Different colored chocolates, festive sprinkles in your wedding colors, transfer paper or even drizzling oreos in multiple colors or chocolate. And if I perhaps think my abilities good enough, creating the bride and groom without a mold.
For the cookies professionally done, with a bride and a groom nicely package in a little box, I'd pay at least 5 bucks a piece, not including taxes and shipping. For the professionally created bride and groom packaged separately and packaged in a cellophane bag, it's at least 1.50 without tax and shipping. These all seem like relatively expensive routes.
I would need at least 120 favors, that 240 Oreos.
A box of Oreos is roughly $2.50 and has 45 cookies in each.
So I'd need about 6 boxes, at $15 bucks total.
5 lbs of white chocolate ($17.20) and 5 lbs of milk chocolate ($17.20).
Then you have to package them. A small favor box is .30, and 120 is $36. Totaling the project up at only $85.40.
