Americolor has a chocolate brown color that really looks like chocolate. When I color my fondant with it, I think it should taste and smell like chocolate, but it doesn't icon_sad.gif It might work for you.

the latest wedding cake i added with the brown ribbon was mmf with brown food coloring (wilton), i was afraid it was too dark but she wanted chocolate brown so it can be done with paste coloring, i would suggest adding while the marshmallows are melted as it took almost a whole jar and to make the monogram, i just added tylose powder - hope this helps!
