AHi. I've been asked to make cake pops for a birthday, but I can't seem to find black candy melts, only red. The only available things are white candy melts, white chocolate, and chocolate. Can I tint either one of those three to make black? Thank you!

AYes, you can use black candy color and mix that in with dark chocolate candy melt to achieve black. Just make sure its an oil based color and not water based :)

Do you have a Michaels near you for balck candy melts?  They usually have black at this time of year-before Holloween.

APersonally, I just stick in the black candy melts after the cake pop is dipped in the red and black, I seem to have a problem with them melting if I dip it back into my chocolate. I don't see why you couldn't just cut out black fondant circles and attach those once dried and then dip into the chocolate.

AI wouldn't think so as long as the fondant has firmed up a little and the chocolate is not too hot
