For those that love sweets, it doesn't get much sweeter than white chocolate. This sugary treat can be melted down and used for dipping strawberries, fondue and many other desserts. You can also add colour to white chocolate to create brightly coloured desserts. However, you can't just put a couple of drops of liquid food colouring into the chocolate as you would with white frosting. Speciality food colouring products must be used to successfully colour melted white chocolate.
- Skill level:
Things you need
- Double boiler
- Colouring oil
- Powdered food colouring
- Gel paste food colouring
Fill the bottom pot of the double boiler with water and bring to a simmer over medium heat.
Add white chocolate chips or chunks to the top pan of the double boiler and stir the chocolate until melted.
Stir in the oil-based food colouring one to two drops at a time until the chocolate reaches your desired colour. If you are using powdered food colouring or gel paste food colouring, stir in 1 tsp at a time.
Tips and warnings
- Do not use the traditional water-based liquid food colouring as it will cause the chocolate to seize up and become chunky.
