All I have is wilton colors. I was wanting to make some football cookies tonight, but I can't get the dark brown color I need. I've tried mixing just about every color! Anyone know the combination I should use?

If you have cocoa and don't mind the icing being chocolate, it's the best way to get the dark color.

I love the Americolor brown. Works much better than wilton.

I added cocoa to my RI. It smelled like chocolate, by whoever ate them said they did not taste like chocolate. (I don't eat cookies that have RI on them)
