The Unicorn theme is very popular this year for birthday parties. My 10 year old wanted something different this year and I wasn't sure what to make. I wanted to create something beautiful but also yummy. Soooo here it is, Unicorn rice crispy treats dipped in chocolate. Oh yeah! They are very appealing to the eye but also very tasty. Lets just say it was a hit and the kids devoured them!
At the end of this blog, I also attached 2 videos that show you how to make Unicorn cupcakes or a Unicorn cake, make sure to have a look at them.

Rice crispy treats
Decorative straws or lollipop sticks
Edible metallic paint
Insert a lollipop stick or a decorative straw in the middle of a rice crispy treat. Transfer all your treats onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Place your cookie sheet in the freezer for 5 minutes. This will help your chocolate to set faster.
Meanwhile, melt pink and white candy melts in a microwavable container. Make sure that the container is deep enough to dip your rice crispy. Melt 30 seconds at the time in the microwave, stirring between each interval.
Tip: Use a plastic container instead of glass. The glass will get hot and will continue cooking your chocolate even after you take it out of the microwave and will be difficult to work with.
Dip the entire rice crispy into the chocolate. Remove the treat and tap gently on the side of your container, this will take off the extra chocolate. Let them dry on a parchment paper standing up. (you may also put them in the refrigerator couple of minute to speed up the process)
Using a Unicorn or horse silicone mold,(http://amzn.to/2GkpulZ) dust with a small amount of corntarch. (make sure that it's a small amount or else it can take away the definition of your figurine)
Press the fondant firmly into the mold making sure all the excess paste is pushed in to ensure clean edges. Remove any excess of fondant making sure your paste is flush with the mold without spilling over. Place your mold in the freezer for 15 minutes. When out of the freezer, unmold by puling the sides of the mold apart gently while pushing the back of the mold.
