I made white chocolate candy using a mold and it set up just fine. Then I used candy coloring and it's not drying. Help? Do I need to spray it with something?

It's probably not gonna dry I guess. But how di dyou apply it.

You can probably wipe it off and go again maybe.

Or next time color the mold first--paint it with the colored chocolate then pour in the molten chocolate. Or you can pint it with just th ecolor sometimes too--depends.

But chocolate is a fat so stuff dosn't always stick real good. It's finicky.

I put it in the mold then took it out and painted it with candy coloring using a fine brush to get it in all the details. Any other suggestions. I would hate to start over.

I think the candy coloring is meant to be added to the chocolate itself.

Options at this point are wipe it off and use some spoofle dust (my collective name for all those non-toxic and edible luster, flower & pearly dusts) Or you could brush it with powdered food coloring too. But at this point we are going for accent color to spiff up the white --I don't think you're gonna get true blue bold sea to shining sea coloring.

Another option is wipe off the color and melt & color some of the chocolate with the candy coloring and paint the mold first then pour the mold full and let it set up.
