'bubbling' on soy surface?

l made some hot chocolate 'drink' candles yesterday. The first pour was a disaster, major frosting and wet spots everywhere. (pic attached.) l warmed them up in the oven for a bit, and things just got worse.

So yanked them out of the glassware, pulled them apart, re-melted & repoured much cooler, (almost slushy) into just warm glasses. l then covered them with a box and let them cool overnight. (it's quite cold here at night). The sides turned out great, only a tiny bit of frosting on the bottoms and no wet spots, but should l be concerned about the surface? (see after pic) These ones were covered with whipped 'froth' anyway so the tops were hidden, but l want to make glasses of 'milk' too, and would love smoother tops if possible :smiley2:

Two factors I am curious about. What type of wax are you using? The wax just might not be working with that particular dye. Browns are tempermental. They are notorius for throwing frost because of the red in them. Especially if its a liquid dye. Try making one without the dye. If you get different results its the dye. If you don't then it's your pouring temperature.
