As if Rice Krispie Treats weren’t magical enough already, we figured out a way to make them even more so. These Unicorn Rice Krispie Treats are so much fun!
How to make Unicorn Rice Krispie Treats
If you have kids, they will LOVE this as a project they can eat. If you don’t, YOU will love this for the same reasons.
If you’ve ever tried out one of our other cookie cutter recipes, like Frozen Theme Rice Krispie Treats or Dinosaur Rice Krispie Treats, this will be easy for you to do. The most fun part though is at the end when you get to be creative and decorate your unicorn.
Whenever we have a recipe that is a bit more intricate, like decorating or specific cuts, we make it as a half batch. That makes the treats thinner and easier to cut. But if you want a full sized batch, you can easily double the ingredients.
You will start with your large stock pot. Put it on your stove top burner of choice and set your heat to medium. Put 2 tablespoons of butter into the pot and allow it to melt.
Once your butter is mostly melted, add in half a 16 oz bag of Jet Puff Marshmallows. Stir them together until your marshmallows are completely melted and your marshmallows have a nice buttery yellow hue to them.
Cut the heat to low or medium-low. That is to avoid overcooking your marshmallows. Overcooked marshmallows become rigid and difficult to work with.
Use you spatula to scoop the treat mix from the pot and into the pan. Flatten them out completely into the bottom of the pan and set to the side and allow to cool.
While waiting for it to cool, you can get out your unicorn cookie cutters and other decorating supplies.
For a batch this size, you should be able to get 4 or more unicorn shapes, depending on the size of your cookie cutter. Place your cookie cutter in position and press down firmly and evenly. Lift the cutter up and use a knife or spatula to remove any excess treat.
Continue until you have all of your cutouts ready. Marshmallow treats are nice for these projects because you can usually take all of that extra treat you trimmed off of each cutout, smoosh them all back together, and get another cutout out of them.
Now comes the fun part. Take out your vanilla cake frosting and cover the top face of the unicorn treat. Do this for all of your unicorns.
Take out your black writing gel and color in your unicorns muzzle/nose area. Take some rainbow sprinkles and sprinkle them along the long side of the treat to make the unicorn’s mane. Finally, use a bit of gold sprinkles to cover make the gown nice and sparkly. Place a candy eye on the face and “voila!” you have a magical unicorn!
