Unicorn Rice Krispies Treats
Making Rice Krispies treats is always fun, but getting to add in cool colors and fun molds make these a really, really fun cooking activity.
Anytime that there is a chance to cook and create together in the kitchen it’s always a win-win. (of course, you can make these on your own as well!)
Start by gathering up all your ingredients before you get started. This recipe is used with store bought Rice Krispies treats to keep it simple and save time, which is always a winning combination.
Not only does it save time to get store bought Rice Krispies, but it keeps them all the same size as well! No one wants to feel as though they got a smaller Unicorn Rice Krispies Treat than someone else, right?
Eliminate the issue by buying them at the store. Problem solved.
After you’ve dipped them in your melted white chocolate, it’s time to get creative! Don’t pressure yourself here on making everything perfect. Just have fun.
And if you are making these with family or friends, it’s actually a lot of fun to see how everyone’s varied once they are done. No two will be exactly the same!
Don’t forget your molds! The molds are what makes the beautiful flowers that decorate the foreheads of your “unicorn” so these are supposed to be bright and festive colors.
Decorating your Unicorn Rice Krispies Treats
Don’t worry, you don’t have to be an artist or cake decorator to make these unicorn desserts. As long as you have a positive attitude and mentally, your unicorn treat will come out looking amazing!
