WHY ARE UNICORNS SO POPULAR?

Unicorns have always been a popular mythical creature, but the past couple of years has seen an all-time high for unicorn popularity.

I think the reason kids love unicorns so much is the mystery surrounding unicorns. Unicorns are legendary creatures and that seems to really appeal to kids, especially little girls.

There are so many tales with unicorns and many involve a prince or princess!

I don’t think the unicorn trend is going away anytime soon! If you do a search for unicorn party ideas you will be blown away by how many ideas are available!

INGREDIENTS FOR UNICORN DESSERT CUPS

These unicorn dessert cups could also be considered unicorn food! I love that there are only 4 ingredients in this easy recipe.

I already had most of these ingredients around the house! We always have sprinkles and almond bark on hand to make sweet treats.

You can change the colors to make them fit a unicorn party if you are throwing one! Party stores typically have single colored M&M’s and Sixlets that you can purchase.

HOW TO MAKE UNICORN DESSERT CUPS

I love easy recipes and this one is definitely easy to make.

STEP ONE: MELT ALMOND BARK

Start off by putting some almond bark (or white chocolate) into a microwave bowl and melt it in the microwave according to package instructions. You can also melt it over a double boiler if you prefer.

STEP TWO: PLACE IN MUFFIN TINS

Allow the almond bark to cool slightly while you place small cupcake liners in a mini muffin tin.

Put about 1/2 a tablespoon of white chocolate in each cupcake liner.

STEP THREE: ADD TOPPINGS

Now add an assortment of toppings to the unicorn cups.

Sprinkle the M&M’s, Sixlets and sprinkles on top of the almond bark.

STEP FOUR: LET COOL

Once you are done decorating allow the unicorn dessert cups to set up for at least an hour.

Do not put them in the refrigerator to set up because this will cause them to “sweat” when you take them out of the refrigerator later. They will set up at room temperature if you give them time!

Once they are set up you can pop them out of the muffin tin and serve up to your little princesses!
