When it comes down to it, there really is something quite magical about these cookies. Maybe it’s the fun chocolate chips or maybe it’s the way that the pastel colors really stand out against the dark coloring of the cookies but whatever is the case, the kids love making and eating these unicorn treats.
And I honestly love them, too. There are so many fun flavors that you don’t have to really worry about anyone in the family not liking them!
You can easily alter the color of the chocolate chips, too. We like to use the pastel-colored because it does remind us of unicorns but you can use any colored chocolate chips that you want. You can even change them out and make them the most festive for the holidays as well.

How to store these cookies
The best way to store these cookies is to keep them in a container with a lid. This also means that you’ll be cutting out the air and they’ll stay fresh for a much longer period of time.
