Where can I find dye to color candy? I've tried the water-based food colors, but the chocolate seizes. I read that I need dye that is made specifically to color candy/chocolate

Have you tried the Wilton Paste colours? i have not tried it myself but they should not seize the chocolate I wouldn't think. anyway, it might be woth a shot.

Wilton paste colors are water based you cannot use them with chocolate.

For chocolate you need to use either oil based or powdered food coloring you can't use gel or water based food coloring. fondantsource.com carries both. If you don't have time to order online your local cake supply store will carry these products. http://www.fondantsource.com/candycolors1.html
