Not only is “unicorn” fudge completely fun and amazing, it’s also super easy to make. So, your fudge-making days have changed for the better, because you’ll never have to settle for boring old regular fudge ever again.
The recipe for unicorn fudge from Sprinkles For Breakfast proves that with a bit of food coloring and a ton of sprinkles, you can transform average white chocolate into a beautiful, colorful treat that’s almost, but not quite, too pretty to eat.
To make this magical fantasy fudge a reality, you’ll need an 8-inch-by-8-inch pan lined with parchment paper, white chocolate chips, heavy cream, vanilla extract, food coloring (this recipe used purple!) and more sprinkles than you can possibly imagine.
All you have to do is melt down the white chocolate and combine it with heavy cream and vanilla extract. Add the food coloring and pour the mixture into the pan. Top with sprinkles and chill for at least an hour.
Then, you’ll have a fudge that’s far from ordinary. Isn’t it a sight for sore eyes?
If you don’t mind tackling a recipe that’s a tiny bit more involved (anything for unicorn fudge, right?), you’ll want to try The Novice Chef’s recipe, which calls for marshmallow cream to make the fudge a little extra rich and creamy. This version also swirls food coloring onto the top of the fudge for added flair, then tops it all with marshmallows and sprinkles.
The end result is mesmerizing:
For bonus points in the taste category, you could also try going with different flavors to match the fun coloring and sprinkles. This recipe for cake batter-flavored unicorn fudge from California Unpublished calls for white cake mix to give the fudge a birthday-cake taste. How fun is that?
Of course, this still gets topped with festive sprinkles and has a dash of pink food coloring added into one of the layers. All in all, it’s a treat worthy of its unicorn title.
When it comes to giving your food a unicorn flair, the fun doesn’t stop here. Not only can you take fudge to the next level with a unicorn touch, but you can also make unicorn-themed sugar cookie bars, banana bread and even cocktails that are sure to be unlike anything you’ve ever made thanks to the colorful additions and sugary sprinkles.
With recipes like these, making desserts just got a whole lot sweeter. Bring on the unicorn fun!
