Just realized you can use unsweetened dry kool aid/flavor aid/wylers to color candy melts, and as a plus it gives it a flavor to boot. It is a powder and not water, or oil based. I tried this with frosting and did the blue rasberry and it tastes like cotton candy!! Added plus, they are very inexpensive!!

How much kool aid do you use in your chocolate when you are making cake pops or cake balls. I would love to make some and try with my new cake ball machine. Thanks

Does the kool-aid leave a gritty texture in the melted chocolate?

As long as you use the unsweetend kind, and I don't mean the kind with artificial sweetner. I'm talking about the kool aid you can get 8 packets for a $1. Or the flavor aid packets.

oops, I meant to say it does not leave a gritty texture as long as you use the regular kool aid. I would start with 1 packet 1st per pound and then see how that turns out. I used a packet of grape and blue rasberry a few months ago and it turned out pretty good.

Sounds like you could use the Kool Aid to flavor regular cake too.
I feel an experiment 'coming on'.

I have a question about adding Kool Aid to Chocolate Melts. So do you just add one pack to a 1 LB package and melt it all together. Do you have to mix the color of melts to the flavor of Kool Aid. Thanks all of the information you have posted for us.

I usually melt the melts first, and then add the unsweetened koolaid/flavor aid packets to it. I usually start with 1 packet and see how it works and if it needs more keep adding a little more til you get the desired color. The blue one give the flavor of cotton candy
