Pink Strawberry Chocolate

During our attempts to make cake balls yesterday we wanted to see if it was possible to dye the chocolate.  We used a few drops of red food colouring in the bowl but I think we may have added it too early, as the chocolate then didn't want to melt and started to resemble butter cream icing. We attempted to coat one ball but it fell apart so instead we decided to just turn it back into a chocolate bar.  I took inspiration from Hotel Chocolate and made a rectangular slab of the stuff and sprinkled it with all the left over chocolate we had from making the balls.  We also added a touch of strawberry flavouring and do you know what it may have looked odd but it actually tasted really nice!!
