Hi Alicain

White chocolate contains a lot of cocoa butter which, when coloured, turns out green. To help tame this, either use oil-based colours for chocolate as seen here:

or chocolate/food whitener here:

You could also use pre-coloured candy melts. I have used Merckens brand which seems to taste better than others.
