Colored candy melts in Michele Foster's fondant

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Has anyone tried making the white chocolate variation of  Michele's fondant,  but with colored candy melts? I LOVE this recipe, especially with the white chocolate, but I'm trying to find an easier way to make red and black batches. Thanks!

Look at this link, you can adapt the fondant part of the recipe but I've used colored candy melts (plus some coloring if needed) and it works beautifully.

These days I'll just purchase most of my deeper colors but this works well, just make it a day or two in advance-the color will deepen overnight which means you don't have to go crazy with the coloring.

Angela from Sugar Sweet Cakes and Treats also has a koolaid method (there's a link to that recipe on post I pasted above), this one I haven't tried but Angela is great so I'm sure it works too.

It's harder to find black candy melts (unless it's Halloween or you order online), in a pinch I'll use regular chocolate (or your brown candy melts) and add black from there.
