I know I'm not dreaming, but I saw comments made in other threads about using candy melts to make the red fondant.

Can anyone who does this share their recipe for using the candy melts in fondant????????

I would appreciate it! icon_smile.gif

I don't know about that method, but I had to color white fondant red the other day. I tried a technique I hadn't used before, I put the amount of fondant that I needed in a zip lock bag (with some powdered sugar so it wouldn't get too wet), added a good amount of red food coloring and massaged it inside the bag. It worked really well and it didn't look like I had killed someone with my bare hands afterwards and didn't stain my kitchen countertop.

I've done fine with getting red fondant red enough, but know I saw the candy melts mentioned. Just curious if it gets melted in with the marshmallows or at what point they get added and how much!
