What supplies do you need for Unicorn Rice Krispie treats?

In addition to the Rice Krispies and marshmallows, you will need a few additional supplies. Here is the list with links:

  1. Mold for the HORN
  2. Unicorn SPRINKLES
  3. White CANDY MELTS or white chocolate chips.
  4. GOLD EDIBLE INK to color the unicorn horn.
  5. BLACK decorating icing.
  6. Pastry bag with a FINE TIP or a piece of parchment paper. 
  8. Pink and Purple food coloring.

Let’s Make Unicorn Rice Krispie Treats.

Measure out 3 cups of Rice Krispies and set aside. In a large bowl, melt 1 1/2 Tbsp of butter.  Add 20 large marshmallows or 2 cups of mini marshmallows.  Stir to coat the marshmallows with butter—microwave 60 to 90 seconds to melt the marshmallows until they are puffy.  Then add 3 drops of pink and 2 drops of purple food coloring.  Swirl the food coloring in to create your unicorn marshmallows.  Add the 3 cups of Rice Krispies and stir to mix.  Once the Rice Krispies are coated with the Unicorn marshmallows, press the mixture into an 8 1/2 X 11-inch baking pan and chill for 1 hour.   Remove the treats and cut them into unicorns.

Decorate the Unicorns: 

  1. Make the horns: Use the white candy melts and the horn mold.  White chocolate chips will also work. Add a little vegetable shortening (1tsp/1/2 cup chips). Melt the candy melts in the microwave and fill the horn.  Let the melts harden, then unmold and color the horn gold. 
  2. Make the ears by cutting a mini marshmallow on the diagonal. 
  3. Attach the horn, ears, and sprinkles, as pictured using the melted candy, melts as “glue.”
  4. Draw on the eyes with the black decorating icing.
