Oil Candy colour is used to colour chocolate and chocolate-based products. You have to use oil based or powder colours to colour chocolate.
This great product is ready to go and made by Americolor.
Everyone knows that oil and water don't mix. So if you want to colour chocolate you can't use gel paste or airbrush colours as they are water based! AmeriColor oil candy colors are specially formulated to work with high fat products like white and dark chocolate. They are also perfect for compound chocolate (candy melts, chocolate wafers).
To use, melt your chocolate as you usually do. Squeeze out the colour a small amount at a time and mix it in until you get the desired shade. If your chocolate gets too thick to work with, you may need to add a small amount of paramount crystals, or- some people use a small amount of shortening to thin the chocolate. If you want to colour chocolate and don't have candy colours or need a special colour, use AmeriColor Flo Coat.
Please note these gel colours are not EU approved for use with food as they use sodium benzoate and potassium sorbate as preservatives, some also contain the colour E127 which is no longer permitted in food products.
These Americolor gels are therefore sold as non-edible and only suitable for non-edible craft projects.
