Simple Unicorn Rice Krispies Treats
The great thing about making these Rice Krispies treats is that they are so pretty to look at, too! It’s like taking your food and then turning it into a beautiful piece of art – before gobbling it up and reaching for the next one.
There are very few treats that are this pretty and taste this good. Plus, you don’t even have to break a sweat while making them. This is one recipe is that seriously simple and seriously delicious.
It’s even a recipe that younger kids can help do as well! Let them help with the stirring and adding in of ingredients. The end result always tastes so much better when everyone helps!
Start this simple recipe by gathering up all your ingredients to begin. The good news? There isn’t a lot that you need to have on hand! (and you might already have several of them in your pantry at home!) Getting to make a treat without having to head to the store would be pretty great, right?

Finding the unicorn mold is half the fun! Who knew that there were so many options out there to choose from?
Find one that is a good “treat” size and keep that in mind when you’re looking. Too big of one and it’s too much to eat in one sitting, too little of one and it’s not enough!
Once you cut them out, stand back and look at your creation! Have you ever viewed something so beautiful that is also edible?
Have fun devouring the first bite! (and the next one, and the next one!) When we make these as a family, we always end up with a lot fewer than what we’re supposed to because we’re too busy gobbling them down.
But in my mind, that’s what cooking together is all about! The time that we bond together in the kitchen is a great way to spend our time together. The kids love being able to create a fun dessert and I love being able to cook with them and teach them fun life skills.
Now that you can see how simple this unicorn food recipe is, it’s time to make it yourself. All you need are a few things to get started and the kids are certainly going to love jumping in!
Just give yourself a limit on how many you’re going to snack on as you make them…because if you’re anything like me, you just might eat through quite a large potion of them!
PS – Don’t forget that sharing is caring! Your family and friends would love to partake in some of the snacking as well! Being delivered homemade unicorn treats is a simple way to brighten anyone’s day!
Set aside a few extra treats as you’re making these up to ensure that you have plenty left over to share!
- 1 box fruit-flavored crispy rice cereal - look for one with many colors
- 1 package (10 ounces) miniature marshmallows
- 1/2 cup sprinkles, optional (rainbow sprinkles are a fun addition!)
- 3 tablespoons butter
Grab a 13 x 9 baking sheet and line it with wax paper and a spritz of non-stick cooking spray.
Start melting your butter in a saucepan over heat. You'll want a larger one because you'll be adding more to it. Once the butter is melted, add in the package of marshmallows, stirring constantly until they are fully melted. Once they are melted, remove the pan from heat.
Fold in the cereal at this time. Stir until the cereal is coated entirely. Next, if you are using sprinkles, add them in. Keep in mind that they will melt but they give the treats a cool shine. The sprinkles also harden the treat a bit but they still taste the same and it doesn't affect that.
Take a spatula (butter it up first) and press the cereal and marshmallow mixture down into a baking sheet. Let it cool completely.
Use your cookie cutter to cut out your unicorn shape!
