QUICK DIRECTIONS: To melt your chocolate or candy wafers,coarsely chop and place 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. For best results, do not overheat the chocolate, and avoid introducing moisture. Both these conditions will ruin the chocolate. Once your chocolate has been melted, use a craft paint brush and carefully "paint" the white or colored chocolate into the mold designs. After filling each design, tap the mold onto the table to settle the chocolate, and remove any trapped air. Once your painted design chocolate has cooled, fill the the mold cavities approximately 1/3 full with the contrasting colored chocolate or candy wafers. Tap the mold onto the table to settle the chocolate, and remove any trapped air. If you've painted the designs, avoid remelting them by filling the cavities with chocolate that's as cool as possible, and tap the mold very gently as this can also cause the colors to bleed together. Press the Oreo cookie into the chocolate, and center it in the mold cavity, horizontally and vertically. As you press the Oreo into the mold cavity, the chocolate will rise up around the sides, embedding the cookie, and leaving only the top uncovered. Pour the chocolate over the embedded Oreo, completely filling the mold, and covering the cookie. Gently tap the mold onto the table to settle the chocolate, and remove any trapped air. If necessary, level the chocolate by scraping away the excess with a silicone spatula. After the chocolate has hardened, chill the mold in the refrigerator for approximately 10 minutes. Turn the mold upside down and press on the back of the cavity to release the chocolate covered Oreos.
Tips for Great Results:
1. Use Candy /confectionary melts/buttons
2. If using genuine chocolate, the chocolate should be tempered prior to adding to the mold.
3. Do not overheat the chocolate or candy melts - extremely hot substances can cause sticking in the mold.
4. Do not melt your candy melts/chocolate directly in the mold using a microwave.
5. Hand wash the mold. Mold is NOT DISHWASHER SAFE. Dishwashing or putting the mold in microwave will cause damage to the mold and effect performance.
