How do you make colored candy melts?
Besides, can I use gel food coloring in candy melts?
Candy melts/chocolate are oil-based and regular gel colors are water-based. Adding regular gel colors will cause the melts the "seize" which will make the candy melts lumpy and unworkable. I just add a little vegetable oil to the water based colors and it works perfect.
Also, can candy melts be colored? Candy melts contain oil, so you'll need to use oil-based food coloring -- the standard set of liquid food colors from the supermarket's baking aisle won't work. White candy melts give you the blank canvas you need to make custom colors.
Subsequently, one may also ask, can you add food coloring to melted white chocolate?
Adding a water based food coloring to your chocolate will destroy it! When you use coloring oil to color white chocolate, think of them as mixing a colored paint with white paint – you create the depth of color/tint that you want by adding a few drops at a time to the melted white chocolate.
How do you tint candy melts?
To color Candy Melts, add Wilton Candy Colors to Candy Melts a little at a time. Mix thoroughly before adding more color. It's better to add more candy color than to have a color that's too intense or bright. If you do add too much color, you can lighten the color by adding more white candy melts.
