Can I use icing colors to color Candy Melts?

Joyce - from Chicago, IL

Icing colors should not be used to color candy. Wilton offers a line of Candy Colors, concentrated oil-based colors designed specifically to blend into Candy Melts. Use a single color for a vibrant look, or combine colors together to create a whole new hue. There’s a Candy Color Chart available to guide you.
