How to make chocolates in different colors!
- Choose mold.
- Figure out what areas you want certain colors.
- Get those color chocolates.
- Melt them down. *Hint when using a lot of colors use small containers and an electric frying pan with water on the bottom. Keep pan on lowest setting.
- With a paint brush, dab the colors you want into the area you want, then let dry.
- Fill in the mold with the color that takes up the most space.

Americolor food writer set.
We mixed a little black chocolate into the super white to make the shade of grey we wanted. The lollipop we filled with grey, added the stick and when it was removed from the mold, dotted the eyes with black chocolate.
The one on the cake we painted in the teeth and eyes with white, let that dry, then filled it with grey. When we took him out of the mold we used a black food writer pen and drew a line for the mouth and lines for the gills.
The lollipop and the one for the cake were done the same way except we did not use a stick for the one on the cake. Dot a little blue in for the eyes and let it dry. It will only take a few minutes. While it is drying dot in purple chocolate for the spots on his arms. Now dot white chocolate over the blue and fill in the rest of the eye. Let it dry. Fill mold with orange chocolate. If you want it to be a lollipop, place the stick in and roll the stick so the chocolate is covering the stick. Put in the freezer for approximately 10 minutes.
For the lollipop, we mixed light green chocolate and yellow together to get a lime green color. We dotted in white chocolate for his eye. We dabbed in lime green for the fins, let it dry and then filled it up with orange. We put the stick in, rolled it, and placed it in the freezer for approximately 10 minutes. When he came out of the freezer we used the black food writer and dotted his eye and made his mouth. For the one on the cake, we used the same procedure but we used regular light green chocolate for his fins and yellow for the rest. When he came out of the freezer we used the brown food writer to add lines on his body, made his mouth and dotted his eye.
For the lollipop, we painted in the white chocolate for the eye and yellow for the fin and let dry. We filled mold with blue chocolate, added the stick and put in freezer. When he came out we used the black food writer and dotted the eye and added his mouth. The sea horse for the cake we painted the eye in white, painted the fin light green and filled it with yellow. When he came out we used the green food writer and added lines on the belly and the brown food writer for his mouth and eyes.
The lollipop and the one for the cake were done basically the same. The one for the cake we painted in the white eye first. Then for both we mixed a little milk chocolate in with the yellow for under his shell. We painted in dark green for his arms, legs and head and let that dry and then filled it up with milk chocolate. For the lollipop we used a stick and for the cake we did not. After it came out of the freezer we used the black food writer and dotted the eye and drew the mouth. The one for the cake we also outlined the shell.
On the cake we also used mold # N-15 crab lollipop (we did not use the stick). We just poured him in red and when he came out we used some melted red chocolate and attached small candy eyes. For the octopus, we drew him on a piece of paper and covered it with parchment paper. We outlined him with orange chocolate in a squeeze bottle, and then filled him in. When dry, we added details with food writers.
