Tri-Coloured Unicorn Cookies

A treat fit for a unicorn… because they’re allowed having cookies, too.

Unicorn cookies are something I just knew I had to make for Fabulous Habits’ month-long unicorn theme. What I mainly see trending on the web are unicorn cookies that are supposed to act as their poop. But hey, now, wait a minute?! Why can’t unicorns have cookies of their very own?

Ladies and gents: unicorn cookies, an oh-so-colorful treat we can share amongst human friends and magical friends. Enjoy!

Bake-It-Yourself Unicorn Cookies

A treat fit for a unicorn… because they’re allowed having cookies, too.

1 stick butter, softened
½ cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 ¼ cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
Pinch salt
2 drops red gel food coloring
2 drops purple gel food coloring
2 drops yellow gel food coloring
½ cup white candy melts
¼ cup sprinkles

In a stand mixer, mix butter, sugar, and egg on medium speed. Once thoroughly combined, add vanilla.

In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, and salt.

Slowly add dry ingredients to your egg and butter mixture (preferably in thirds).

Once your cookie dough is formed, divide it into three different bowls. Color each bowl with your gel food coloring (one color per bowl).

Wrap cookie dough separately in plastic wrap and chill for 2 hours.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Roll out each colored dough on a floured surface, forming each one into long strips. Then twist all three colors together and form into a ball.

Cover a rolling pin with flour and roll out your tri-coloured dough to be about ¼ of an inch thick. With a cookie cutter, cut out circular shapes.

If you're planning a unicorn party, then these tri-colored unicorn cookies are something you'll have to make! So colorful and so sweet! #unicorncookies

Place shaped cookie dough on baking sheet, about 2 inches apart from each other. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes and allow to cool on rack before decorating.

Microwave candy melts in 30-second intervals until completely melted.

Dip ¼ of each cookie into candy melts and place back on lined baking sheet. Add sprinkles and allow to set before serving. Enjoy the unicorn goodness!
