Unicorn Rice Krispies Recipe

These unicorn Rice Krispies treats are amazing and will bring a smile to anyone's face! And the best thing is that they aren't hard to make.

Cook Time 30 minutes
Additional Time 20 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes

Ingredients

  • 6 tbsp butter, divided
  • 4 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 6 cups of rice cereal
  • 3 oz. white fondant
  • 3 oz. pink fondant
  • 1 cup pink candy melts
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • 2 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 tbsp milk (might need more)
  • 1 drop violet gel food coloring
  • 1 drop yellow gel food coloring

Instructions

  1. Grab a square pan (9x9) and cover completely with 1-2 tbsp butter on the inside and set aside.  
  2. Next, melt the remaining butter on medium heat on a medium size pan on your stove. Add in the mini marshmallows and continue to stir until it's all mixed well. Immediately take the melted marshmallow mixture and fold in your rice cereal. 
  3. Take a spatula and press down the rice cereal treat mixture into your square pan. Pat it down well and allow it to set for a bit before cutting it into rectangles.  
  4. Grab a baking sheet, line it with wax paper, and lay all of the cut cereal rectangles on it. 
  5. Next, it's fondant time! Use a clean surface and begin making your fondant shapes. Start by rolling 20 spheres out of your white fondant – about ½ an inch in size, to get ahead and have uniformity.
  6. Next, take your pink fondant, and roll out and create 10 spheres about ½ an inch in size. Then, roll out another 20 spheres, about ¼ of an inch in size. 
  7. Take the white fondant spheres and shape them into flat triangles. Do the same with your ¼ of an inch pink spheres as well. Press one of the pink triangles onto each of the white triangles. Roll each larger pink fondant sphere out to be 3-inch strips before using.
  8. Fold each strip in half and start twisting. Really twist 'em up! Once you've twisted to where both ends meet, press it together into a point. These will be your unicorn’s horn. 
  9. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the pink candy and coconut oil in 30-second intervals until melted.
  10. Dip the top portion of each treat into the melted candy. Once done, set it on the baking sheet. While the candy mixture is still melted, use it to help place two fondant ears and one fondant horn on the top of each treat. Let the candy set (between 10 and 20 minutes).
  11. Prepare the buttercream by combining the butter, sugar, and milk on medium speed. One it's mixed a bit, slowly increase to high and allow for the ingredients to combine and become smooth.
  12. Divide the buttercream into two bowls. Use food coloring to color one violet and the other, yellow. Scoop the buttercream into individual piping bags. Each bag should have a star tip. Frost each one with both yellow and purple buttercream and make it look beautiful and creative!
