Yes, you can use the gel food coloring colors as long as it is an oilbase color....no water.

Thanks for the info, as I, too, am interested in doing some of these. But what about the thickness? Mine are always too thin, too.

Hi Flakycake, I don't know if this will help, but how I used to make them is to use a chocolate mold and let the chocolate set for a couple of minutes. Then I turned the mold upside down and tapped out the chocolate. Just the middle blob will flow out. If you want thicker edges, keep the chocolate in there for a longer time. Of course if you let the chocolate sit for too long, then you get a half an egg. icon_biggrin.gif

Thickness also depends on the brand of chocolate too - some chocolate is naturally thinner than others.
