Aren’t these unicorn cookies just the cutest? They’re such a fun idea and really easy to make. The base of these cookies are Nutter Butters so even if you’re not a baker, you can make these adorable treats for your family.
The unicorn craze is still going strong. I’ve always been a big fan of Arthurian legend and loved unicorns as a little girl. These cookies would have been a big hit for me. I can see them being popular with kids (of all ages!) now too.
NUTTER BUTTER UNICORN COOKIES
These adorable Unicorn Cookies start with a base of Nutter Butters making them incredibly easy to make, even for non-bakers.

Set up double boiler with shallow pan and ramekins for each color chocolate. Fill with water till half way up side of ramekins *careful not to get water inside them as it will seize the chocolate. Turn heat to medium low.
Add chocolates and smidge of coconut oil to each, stirring to combine as they melt.
Using wand or fork, dip nutter butter cookies in white chocolate until thoroughly coated. Hover above dish as chocolate drips off. Set on wire rack to harden.
