I was asked by my friend's mom to do the cookies, strawberries, and choc. marshmallows for my friend's wedding. She wants the tuxedo & wedding dress strawberries. I'm wondering, how do you get the black colored chocolate, or is that just dark chocolate, for the tuxedo?? And also, her colors are black & champagne gold. How can I get that color with chocolate? Is that even possible?

I suppose you could start with white chocolate and gradually mix in tiny amounts of peach and pink candy colors. Just make sure you use the oil stuff specifically for candy so the chocolate doesn't seize.

I did something similar once. The bride's colors were red and gold and she wanted strawberries dipped in gold chocolate. I took white almond bark and followed the directions on melting and added gold coloring that I had for frosting. I had to gradually add a bit of Crisco to keep it soft and shiny, but it worked well, the bride was well pleased. HTH. icon_smile.gif

interesting the gold color... never thought of that...

The tuxedo part of the strawberry is just chocolate melted.. not colored or anything special....
