I want to color melted white chocolate pink (paleish). Will gel color seize the chocolate? Just wondering if anyone has tried it, i don't feel like driving 20 miles just to get some powdered or oil color.

Sorry, gel colors will make the chocolate sieze. I learned that the hard way.

Americolor makes a gel that you can add to regular gel colors to make them work with chocolate.

I just discovered last night that if you use Almond Bark (a sort-of wanna be white chocolate) you can add a fair amount of gel color. Which just proves once again that although Bark taste pretty good, it's not chocolate. But it works.

you can also add some vegetable oil to your gel colors (just mix equal parts together and then add to the chocolate) and it will work as long as you don't have a TON of color to add.

Cool, thanks everyone. I'll try the oil mixed with gel first. I just need a hint of pink. Thank again!!
