Here is the scoop on creating these lovely Unicorn swirls of pink an blue unicorn bark.   

Candy Melts.  You can purchase the colored  candy melts or you can custom color white candy melts or white chocolate.  If you decide to color white chocolate or the white candy melts, you will want to make sure you use a food coloring that says, “for candy” on it.  It is oil based instead of the water based food colorings.  The water based ones will cause your chocolate to “seize” up and it will be ruined.  Toss it out and start over.
