Have heard about the FBCT and the chocolate ones. Thinking I will try the chocolate one because I heard it is easier. I haven't heard however, what the mixture is that u use for it. Can someone please tell me...is it just melted white chocolate chips that you use food coloring to tint? Would appreciate any tips I could get on this. Thanks in advance.

Thank you so much. I had seen the first one before but was disappointed that she didn't say what kind of chocolate to use. The second one looks like they are using the bakers chocolate squares? That is what I needed to know...what kind of chocolate to use. Going to attempt this soon. Thanks agan.

If I was to do it, I'd probably use candy melts.

I used candy melts.
Here is a link to the pictures I made. First I started with a paint brush than I switched to some snack sized zip bags.

Wow, this is great I will try it. For FBCT do you use the same technique just using BC?

thank you again. I am completely new to this so sorry to ask such silly questions. Where would I find the candy melts and then do you just color them with gel food coloring?

Candy melts are also called candy coating or chocolate coating. Sometimes you can find it in the grocery store especially around christmas time. It can be found in cake stores or craft stores like Michaels or Hobby Lobby. You can not use gel colors unless you first color something like coco butter than stir that in. You can buy candy melts in many colors look at wilton.com
