Whether it was Lisa Frank, Rainbow Brite, My Little Pony, Legend, or some other magical source that seeded your love of unicorns, we are with you. Jen and I have had a passion for all things sparkly, whimsical, and mythical since we were kids. Stickers were our primary form of currency, and if we had the unicorn snacks presented here, we surely would have been obsessed.
The good news is we’re still kids on the inside. These adorable unicorn snacks know no age limit–I mean, except for the littlest ones. Choking is definitely not a magical experience, so please only give these to kids old enough to chew and tolerate the stickiness of these treats.
Unicorn Snacks for All
If you’re planning a magical birthday party, fantasy movie night, or are just into legendary snacking; these are the treats for you.
As a kid, I was first introduced to Fluffernutter sandwiches at my dad’s house. The sweet and salty combo, on squishy bread, is still a guilty pleasure I devour enthusiastically.
It’s no coincidence that this combo is now the base for these yummy unicorn snacks–why limit a good thing? We use peanut butter, but any nut or seed butter will be just as scrumptious. You can also substitute the Ritz crackers shown here with other crackers to make them gluten-free or if you just want a different shape.
The candies we used for horns are the same from our beloved Melting Unicorn Hot Chocolate Recipe. The Sour Patch Candy Corn is a seasonal item, so stocking up is necessary if you plan to make unicorn foods.
However, there are other ways to make edible unicorn horns. I’ll be back with a post on that yumminess soon.
- Spread a small amount of peanut butter, about 1/2 tsp, onto each cracker.
- Place a small dollop of marshmallow cream onto the peanut butter and carefully spread.
- Place on a flat surface and marshmallow cream will smooth out.
- Add a candy corn horn and two chocolate chip eyes before serving on a bed of rainbow sprinkles, if desired.
