Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and these V-Day Oreo Filled Hearts are just perfect for your special someone. They would also make a great treat to take to a school party or another Valentine’s Day gathering.
I love this recipe because it uses a simple heart-shaped silicone mold – get yours here! The decorative hearts really showcase the design of the treats and make an elegant dessert for any Valentine’s Day.
Plus, you can customize them with different candy colors – they have pink, purple, red, yellow, blue, green, etc. Each color has different shades to choose from, too. This recipe uses Wilton’s – check out the many colors that are available for your recipe from Wilton’s Candy Colors.
Another thing that is great about these Oreo stuffed candies is that you can drizzle them with icing to accent the look. How adorable are these? Simply perfect for your Valentine’s Day treat or for anytime that you would like to show someone just how much you care about them.
This recipe uses a Wilton Chocolate and Candy Melt Melting Pot, but you can also melt your candy melts with a double boiler or whatever method you choose. What I love about the Melting Pot is that the candy melts perfectly every time.
The first thing to do to make these Oreo-stuffed hearts is to place your chosen candy melts into the Wilton Melting Pot or alternate melting method. Once the candy begins to melt, you can check the consistency of the melted candy. If it is too thick, you can thin it out by using some coconut oil. I prefer the taste and purity of a cold-pressed, unrefined coconut oil like this one: Island Fresh Cold-Pressed Coconut Oil or Carrington Farms Cold-Pressed Coconut Oil.
If you are not familiar with coconut oil, these two brands are highly recommended. Unrefined coconut oil will have a stronger coconut flavor than refined coconut oil and the cold-pressed process allows the oil to retain more of its nutritional value.
Once the candy melts have melted into a smooth, creamy consistency, it is time to place the bottom layer into the heart shaped candy molds. Another thing to note is that this recipe could be used for any occasion by simply changing out the molds and colors. The process would remain the same for any theme you choose!
Fill all of the molds approximately 1/3 of the way full with the candy melt, tapping the mold to remove any air bubbles. Place into the freezer for at least 15 minutes or until firm. Meanwhile, you can prepare the Oreo filling.
Separate the filling from the middle of the Oreo Cookies and crush the cookie to make your Oreo Cookie Crumbs. Once you have your crumbs, add the cream cheese and mix it well using a handheld or stand mixer. This will be the base of your stuffing. We used traditional Oreo cookies for this recipe, but you could make it your own by using the Golden Oreos, Red Velvet Oreos, Cinnamon Bun Oreos or any of their other Specialty Flavored Oreos.

By this point, your bottom layer should be ready to come out of the freezer. Test it to make sure that it is solid enough to handle the pressure of the Oreo layer before you begin the next step. Once the test is complete, you can press the Oreo mixture on top of the bottom candy layer. Next, finish the molds by filling the top 1/3 of the mold with the remaining candy melts.
Tap the molds once more to ensure that you have removed all of the air bubbles and then place the molds back into the freezer for at least 15 minutes. Once they have completely set, you may gently remove the candies from the molds. Drizzle with Wilton’s Cookie Icing color of your choice and enjoy!
