I am making chocolate suckers for my DD birthday party with the heloo Kitty mold. But everytime that I try to color the chocolate with Americolor, the chocolate seizes up and I cannot paint the mold with it. Any suggestions? It is the candy coating sold in blocks at the super market. Is it just the Americolor?
Add some shortening to it. I usually do just a little at a time until it's creamy.
You can't use Americolor or Wilton paste or gels in chocolate bark. they contain water and it causes to "chocolate" to seize up. You have to use color made especially for candy. Michaels and Hobby Lobby carry these.
I've had this problem before too, before I knew about candy colors. However, I fixed it just like Kaka said, by adding shortening to it. It will melt and mix up really smooth. Hope that helps!
