Unicorn Popcorn

It’s impossible to eat just one handful of this colorful, salty-sweet treat.

In a very large bowl combine one 3-oz. bag plain, lightly salted microwave popcorn (popped!), 1 cup Rice Chex, 1 cup mini pretzel twists, 1 cup chopped dried-pineapple chunks, and 8 oz. white-chocolate chips, melted. Spread on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Immediately top with pastel sprinkles and refrigerate for 15 minutes to set. Store in the fridge. Makes 16 servings.

Unicorn Hot Chocolate

Like the enviable hot cocoa available on top-secret restaurant menus, this is a rainbow dream of white chocolate, whipped cream, marshmallows and sprinkles. You can get creative with the toppings using a pre-made cocoa mix and pink food coloring, or you can go all the way to mythical bliss with Love and Olive Oil's from-scratch recipe.

The key to this adorable Unicorn Milkshake is not to skimp on the pizzazz! It's all about the decorations: sprinkles, chocolate and whipped cream.

Unicorn Bark Milkshake

This milkshake is downright majestic. Bethcakes’ creation combines two hot Instagram food trends: the overflowing shake and the unicorn theme. A strawberry milkshake, unicorn bark, whipped cream, sprinkles and any other candy your heart desires: It doesn’t get more Instagram-worthy than this.

Sprinkle Explosion Unicorn Bark

This candy bark is a stunning addition to any dessert table. The swirls of pastel purple, pink and blue look fancy but the recipe from Peony and Ink only uses three ingredients: white candy melts, food coloring, and sprinkles. It’s as sweetly easy as melt, color, swirl and cool.

Unicorn Ice Cream

You don’t need an ice cream maker to whip up this colorful frozen treat! Bread Booze and Bacon's homemade Unicorn Ice Cream freezes overnight, garnished with edible glitter of course.

Unicorn Bars

Beautiful blue buttercream tops these bars from Cookies and Cups. The buttery treats don’t skimp on the sprinkles (they’re unicorn bars, after all); they’re in the dough and the frosting for maximum fun.

As everyone knows, unicorns poop rainbows. Kids (and grown-ups) will get a kick out of the name—and the colorful cookie dough-like centers within the white chocolate truffles from Princess Pinky Girl.
