DIY: African Oreos

This summer I did a Jungle Safari Baby Shower. I have gotten a lot of requests for how-tos on the "African Oreos" I did. These oreos are so easy to do, I thought, hey, why not share?!
You will need....
A cookie sheet covered in wax paper
Chocolate transfer sheets
Something to melt your chocolate in
Chocolate chips (or candy melts, whatever you prefer)
Begin melting your chocolate. While chocolate is melting cut your chocolate transfer sheets into squares just big enough to fit over your oreo.
Dip your oreo in chocolate, place on wax paper.

Press chocolate transfer sheet into wet oreo. Make sure to press textured side down.
Repeat with remaining oreos. Refrigerate until chocolate is set.
Once chocolate is set, peel back the transfer sheet to reveal the print. (And ignore my creepy chocolate covered fingers!)

Viola! You have "African Oreos!"


Too keep this OOPS from happening, make sure to press out all air bubbles when you place your transfer sheet on the oreo.
UPDATE: I've gotten a lot of emails on where I got the chocolate transfer sheets. I ordered mine online HERE 
At the time that I ordered them they had lots of selections for animal prints, holiday prints, and other designs.

  2. Where did you buy the chocolate transfer sheets from?
