I wouldn't think so, when we did chocolates in school to colour them we had to use a cocoa butter type colour because it solidified on the chocolate.

I can't say exactly what we used because it was years ago and I haven't done chocolate stuff in a long time. Maybe someone else knows what I'm talking about lol.

But I imagine just regular airbrush colour would just wipe off it it can't be abosrbed into whatever it is sprayed on.

I don't think they will stick either. Most colors are water based so won't stick to chocolate. In culinary school we, too, airbrushed chocolates with coco butter mixtures. It was cool, but not anything I ever did in "the real world."

Yes, actually it does. I airbrush my cake pops all the time. It dries perfectly fine and looks good.

edited to add....take it slowly when using the airbrush on chocolate, just a little bit of color will go a long way. If you use too high of a pressure it will act like oil to water.
