600 Chocolate Covered Oreos- Wedding Favors!

I recently had the pleasure of making 600 chocolate covered Oreos for an Indian wedding. The designs were simple yet elegant. The whole color scheme was pink and gold to match the beautiful bride’s reception outfit! One had an edible image with the bride and groom’s initials and an ornate fondant frame around it. The other was made using pearlized gold cake lace from Claire Bowman. The cookies were then packed in these boxes from BRP Box Shop. BRP products and customer service is impeccable! It took about 40 pounds of chocolate to make the Oreos. I made close to 700 chocolate covered Oreos as I wanted to make sure the Oreos were perfectly dipped! I was also lucky to . . .
