    I have colored them, but I used the paste???? or gel??? I think you could use the food coloring too, just make sure you don't make it too runny that they won't set up.

    Thanks Jet! They had some coloring gel there too but it said it was for icing so I didn't know if I could use it with the melts or not! I suppose I can try it and if it doesn't work we'll just have white mints!

    the kind I used was from WM and it was back with the wedding/candy melt Wilton stuff. it was in a container that had a screw on lid, and I just dipped a toothpick in the coloring and would mix it in the melts until I got the color I wanted. It doesn't take a whole lot of coloring......

    Be very careful!  I've never tried to color them, but I know if you get just a teensy bit of water in melted chocolate you get a nasty mess that doesn't even come close to resembling chocolate!
