While unicorns are a magical, mystical, and yes, a fictional being, they are super real in our hearts. Whether it’s a unicorn-themed party or fun classroom decorations, we can all use a little unicorn magic in our lives.
What’s even better than unicorns? Unicorn desserts! That’s right, unicorn dessert ideas are out there just waiting for you to make them! We’ve compiled a list of fun unicorn dessert ideas for you to try on for size this weekend!
DIY Edible Unicorn Horn Recipe
You can have your very own unicorn horn… and eat it, too! You just need a couple Jell-O packages (as many different types of Jell-O as you want colors in the unicorn horn), some clear soda, powdered sugar, and some love and you are good to go!
- 1 package Jell-O (or more if you want more colors)
- ¼ cups clear soda
- 5-6 cups powdered sugar
- Combine the Jell-O packets and the soda in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for thirty to forty seconds, or until the Jell-O has dissolved into the soda.
- Combine two cups of powdered sugar with the Jell-O and soda mixture in a large bowl and mix on low until the combination is completely combined.
- Continue adding the sugar into the mix until a soft, doughy consistency forms.
- Place the dough onto a surface coated with powdered sugar and knead until the dough is no longer sticky.
- Wrap in plastic and store in the fridge until you are ready to form it into the horn shapes. Enjoy!
Unicorn Rice Krispie Treats
If you’re looking for an easy, unicorn dessert idea to swap for the classic party treat we all know and love, look no further. Instead of using Rice Krispies cereal for this treat, use Fruity Pebbles and turn this classic marshmallow treat into a rainbow unicorn surprise!
- One 10 oz. package marshmallows
- 5 tbsp. butter
- 5 ½ cups Fruity Pebbles cereal
- 1 cup mini marshmallows
- If you want thicker treats, butter an 8×8 pan. If you want them to be thinner, butter a 9×9 pan. Set the pan aside.
- Melt the butter and marshmallows in a large pan over low heat, stirring frequently. When the marshmallows are almost completely melted, remove from the heat source and continue stirring until it’s melted completely.
- Add one cup of mini marshmallows and Fruity Pebbles cereal to the mixture. Stir until well combined.
- Pour into the pan you prepared earlier. Press it evenly into the pan. Let the treats cool completely before you slice and serve. Enjoy!
Unicorn Cheesecake Dip
Three classic crowd-pleasers are at play in this super simple dish: unicorns, cheesecake, and dips. If you make this at your next party, girls’ night, or even a simple night in watching movies with your family, you are sure to have a hit. You can even serve this unicorn dessert idea as an appetizer if you want; we won’t judge if you and your guests snack on some dessert before dinner!
- 12 ounces cream cheese of choice (regular or vegan if you need to go dairy-free)
- 1 cup of yogurt of choice (regular or vegan if you need to go dairy-free)
- Food coloring
- Graham crackers (or whatever else you might want to use for dipping!)
- Let your cream cheese sit until it is room temperature.
- Blend all the ingredients except for the colors using a food processor, blender, or hand mixer until the mixture is smooth (you can hand mix it if you want, but this will take some patience and elbow grease!)
- Divide the mixture evenly into four separate dishes. Stir the different food coloring into their own dish. A little goes a long way!
- Drop spoonfuls of each color into the serving bowl, alternating colors. Swirl the color mixtures together with a spoon and enjoy! If needed, the leftovers can be covered and refrigerated for up to three days after you’ve made it.
This rainbow version of chocolate or peppermint bark will add some color to your party, goody bags, or even the tops of your cupcakes! Even if you want some tasty candy just because you feel like it, this unicorn dessert idea is the right one for you.
- 1-pound white candy coating
- 4-6 ounces candy coating (four to six colors at one ounce each)
- For garnish: 1 package rainbow sprinkles
- For garnish: 1 package candy pearls
- Cover your baking sheet with waxed paper or aluminum foil.
- Melt the white candy coating in their own separate bowls in the microwave. Heat and intermittently stir until each color is smooth, liquid consistency.
- Pour the melted white coating onto the baking sheet and smooth into an even, ¼-inch thick layer.
- Now that you’ve melted the candy coating, you need to move quickly and efficiently!
- Before the candy coating hardens again, drizzle the other colors of the candy coating over the white candy coating in a random pattern. Drag a toothpick or knife through the bark to create a swirled texture.
- While the candy coating is still a little wet, add the rainbow sprinkles and candy pearls to the top. Again, just sprinkle that stuff on there in a pattern you think looks pretty, there’s no real right or wrong way to do it!
- Refrigerate the tray to set the bark for a minimum of 25 minutes.
- Once the bark has set, cut or break the bark into pieces. They can be stored in an airtight container at a cool room temperature for up to two weeks (but they probably won’t last that long!)
