Everybody was out of white Merkens this time and I had to buy Kroger brand "candy coating". Not labeled as almond bark....so I'm not really sure what the difference is
I was wondering how you can color it. I know some of the candy melts I've bought from cake decorating stores can only be colored with oil based colorings.
I had to grab some this week too. It's very sweet, It's also on the thick side, so I had to add Paramount Crystals. I like Merckens better, but when you can't find it . . .
I didn't need to color it, so can't comment there.
I use Kroger's brand a lot and I haven't an issue with adding color either. The only time I've had trouble with the Kroger brand is when I keep reheating the coating several times - that's when it get's to thick to handle.
