I love Oreo’s and I love sharks so of course, I love shark Oreo’s. I came up with the idea for shark Oreo’s after I saw these super cute Goldfish Oreo’s a few months ago. I wanted to make them for Shark Week but I had a lot of auditions that week and never got around to it so I didn’t get to make them until last week. #bummer Oreo Cookie Sharks
Step 1: Melt your candy melts and put in you Oreo’s Oreo Cookie Sharks
I used the Wilton Chocolate & Candy Melts Melting Pot because it’s really easy and it’s not as messy. If you don’t have one, you can melt your candies in the microwave or on the stove. After your candy is melted you want to pour it into the cookie molds. I got my molds from here. If you don’t have one you can totally use a muffin pan. After your candy is melted, put in your Oreo’s.

Step 2: Cover Oreo’s Oreo Cookie Sharks
Once you put in your Oreo’s, use the rest of the melted candy and cover the top. Try to fill it all the way to the top so they are even. After you’re done, stick them in the fridge for 30 minutes and start making the shark face.
Step 3: Make the shark face Oreo Cookie Sharks
To make the sharks face and fins, you want to use air heads. I used airheads because I love them. You can also use fruit roll ups. You want to cut the blue airheads into fin shapes. Kind of like a triangle with a slanted point.
The red airheads will be the mouth and the white airheads are the teeth. I wanted my shark to have funny looking teeth so I cut my teeth funny.
Step 4: Gluing on the fin and face. Oreo Cookie Sharks
To glue on the face and fins you want to use a gel tube or icing. Put a little on the edges of the fin and then sit your cookie on top to hold it in place. Try not to pick it up for 30 minutes so it can dry and stick.
Use the same gel or frosting to glue on the eyes, mouth, and teeth. You want to let them dry so everything will stick. If you don’t want to wait you can put them in the fridge for 10 minutes.
Don’t they look super cute?!?! I want to try and make the goldfish ones I saw and a few other ones I’ve seen on Pinterest. If you end up making these please post them on Instagram with the hashtag #imanittybittybaker and tag me @reesealvarado, I would love to see them and share them on my page.
