Instead of food coloring… what about colored chocolate?  You can paint the little area you want colored then pour in the white chocolate.  

They have tons of colors at Michaels.

@droidlizzie:  Based solely on that picture, I like the looks of the white ones better anyway!  🙂  I think they look adorable!

youre problem is you can’t used water based food coloring with chocolate.  water causes chocolate to “seize up”.  it only takes a drop.  there are other food colorings out there,  try looking at the cake decorating section at michaels.

Yea, as others have said – you need a specific type of coloring to tint chocolate.

once chocolate seizes you can’t bring it back, it’s ruined.

i like the look of the gemstones personally.  I’ve made both chocolates and hard candy many times, and hard candy is defintely easier to make.  Just make sure you keep an eye on the thermometer.  Once I walked away for just a few minutes and when I came back the candy was burnt 🙁  awful smell!
