Hi all!  I need to make FSU cake pops.  Anyone have a clue how to get the chocolate garnet?  Red, brown and purple maybe?  Looking to the experts...thanks in advance!!

Have you tried adding those colors of candy melts to your chocolate?  There are also candy colors which are oil based.

If you are dipping them in chocolate, using chocolate, not white chocolate, then using pearl dust & brush to apply the color you are wanting to add is a very effective way to get the color you are seeking. The chocolate color underneath the dust (crimson, garnet or red) adds to the color, surprisingly. Test dusting before you commit, but it could also be a very effective way to get 'er done. :)

@Pastrybaglady - No, I can try that...but I thought it might be better to color white chocolate.  I bought the oils and will play with it all this weekend. 

@gigiel - I will check to see what I can find for colored pearl dusts. 

Thanks for the responses!!
