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.

Microwave

Stir in the dye until the almond bark is evenly colored.

Tip

Almond bark has a tendency to harden quickly after being melted; it can be reheated using either method.

Warning

Even a drop of a water-based food coloring will ruin the almond bark by hardening it to a state where it is unable to be melted. Read the ingredients of any food dyes to make sure they are oil-based.

Almond bark will burn more easily than dark chocolate, so it must be continuously stirred during the melting process.
