If you want a special color for your candy or chocolate, you can add this Candy Coloring because it is oil based. Cake colourings are water based and may ruin your candy. If you are trying to make a color darker, start with candy coating closest to the color you are trying to achieve. Sometimes, adding coloring will thicken the candy. Melt a bit of Paramount Crystals with the coating to thin.
All of the oil-based candy colors by Chefmaster & Wilton are specifically designed for use in chocolate or candy coatings. The colors are rich, vivid and professional quality.
