How to Add Food Color to Almond Bark

By Suzanne Burns

Almond bark is made from white chocolate, which allows it to be dyed a range of colors. Almond bark reacts to liquids by clumping into a unworkable paste, so food coloring in oil, powder or paste form should be used. Two easy ways to add color to almond bark are by melting the chocolate in either a microwave or a double-boiler then adding the color.
