I'm trying out cake pops for the first time, and my customer wants neon colored pops. Is there a way to color candy melts so they are neon colored?

Thanks!!

I believe those are water based. I know for real chocolate you need to use oil-based colors, but I don't know about candy melts. I hope someone else can add their knowledge.

Has to be oil based for candy melts too. Even then, adding a lot of colouring can make them thicker.

you can add flocoat (alot of it!) to your gel paste colors to color chocolate.
