Want to surprise your kids with a fun and sugary treat? Maybe to celebrate something special, or as a sweet treat – because those are nice every once in a while? I’ve got something super easy, colorful and sure to be a big hit: Unicorn Ice Cream! OK, so this may sound fancy, but trust me, it’s not! It’s simple vanilla ice cream with just the right additions to make it bright and colorful, yet super yummy.
All you need to make Unicorn Ice Cream is your favorite ice cream. I chose vanilla because the toppings I chose would pop against the white, but you can easily choose a colorful ice cream – or if you have the time, separate vanilla ice cream, add in a few drops of food coloring, stir until well mixed and place back in the freezer until frozen. BUT you really don’t need to do all that, just stick with the vanilla and top with the following…
Colorful Sprinkles – I went with sugar sprinkles
Place a couple of scoops of vanilla ice cream into a dish. Sprinkle multi-colored sprinkles over the ice cream. Add on the Sixlets and colored marshmallows (the store I went to were out – BUMMER!). Place a sugar cone on top to make the unicorn’s horn and add a dash of whipped cream, which also gets a bit of sprinkles and a sixlet for good measure.
Serve up and listen as your kids “ummm” and “ahhhh” over their decadent treat! Isn’t this a fun, simple way to surprise your kids? Hope they enjoy!
