If you're using a chocolate-type thing, you need to use oil-based colors.

You can also use Flo Coat from Americolor.  5 parts Flo Coat to 1 part gel color.  The Flo Coat will help the gel colors integrate with the chocolate.

I don't think the color will integrate.  Kinda like if you try to mix water and oil.  You're better off using orange color candy melts.
