Unlock Kitchen Sorcerer Status with Unicorn Poop Cookies
The popularity of all things magical doesn’t seem to be slowing down, and that pleases us greatly. Shelley and I both have loved mystical creatures for our entire lives. Looking for the magic is even more critical during adulthood. Although my inner 8-year-old is clapping with glee over these cookies, so is my current, ahem, much older self.
Unicorn poop cookies might not be the most enticing name, but people love them all the same. <== Rhyming super intentional. Using a sugar cookie type dough and a chocolate kiss, you can rest assure that these desserts are delicious. The cream cheese in the dough makes the cookies extra soft and moist.
It’s important to note that the sparkle gel used here doesn’t seem to set or completely dry. Be mindful of that while serving and eating. The cookies always feel a bit tacky. You can try air drying longer to see if that helps, but they usually don’t last that long!

- Add butter and sugar to a mixing bowl and beat on high speed for 3-5 minutes until butter and sugar mixture is fluffy. Add cream cheese and beat well. Beat in egg and vanilla.
- Add salt and flour and beat until combined well. Divide dough into 4 separate bowls.
- Color each bowl of dough a different color. Mix well to combine colors. Refrigerate, covered, for 30 minutes. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
- Remove from refrigerator and grab a small chunk from each color of dough and roll them into 3-4" long "snakes." Stack colored snakes together and twist to blend snakes together. Curl open ends around to join each other and gently press together. Place onto prepared baking sheet, 2" apart.
- Bake in a 375 degree oven for 10-12 minutes. When cookies are done baking, immediately place a Hershey kiss onto the center of each cookie, gently pressing it into the dough. Let cool completely.
- Use a small brush to spread color gel onto each cookie. Sprinkle cookies with sprinkles.
