Unicorn Sundaes for the New Year

I don’t know what it’s like where you are, but it’s a BAD case of Sunday Night-Itis here.

Not only are we expecting record low temperatures at night for the next week or two, without a real end in sight (except when we go to Florida next week), but the kids are going back to school TOMORROW! Tonight we have to do laundry and baths, and pack up new Doctor Who backpacks with new Captain America water bottles. We have to put out clothes, and fumble around in the dark tomorrow to get two kids ready for school, AND say goodbye to our beloved houseguests on the same day. It’s enough to make me cry. So today? We’ll take back this last day of vacation with a colorful unicorn recipe.

Whether you're throwing a unicorn party, or you just want something festive, fun, and colorful for the new year, these Unicorn Sundaes are sure to please party guests of all ages! #recipe #unicornparty

Unicorn Sundaes

Ingredients:

1 Half Gallon Vanilla Ice Cream
Food Coloring—Pink, Purple, Turquoise
Fruit Flavored Fruit Chews
Candy Toppings and Sprinkles

Directions:

1 – Divide the ice cream into 3 bowls and mix in each color.
2 – Layer the ice cream into a loaf pan one color at a time. Place the pan in the freezer for 1-2 hours until ice cream is hard again.
3 – Unwrap a fruit chew and place in microwave for 3 seconds.
4 – Roll the fruit chew into a ball and then pull and twist until it looks like a unicorn horn. Repeat this step with the other fruit chews.
5 – Take the ice cream out and scoop it into 4 sundae bowls. Make sure to get all the colors in each scoop. (start at one end and scoop until you reach the other end, as this will give you all 3 colors with a perfect scoop).
6 – Sprinkle different candy and sprinkles on each sundae and put the unicorn horn on top of each one.
7 – Enjoy!

This is just the right speed, right? I wasn’t even going to post today, since I’m still technically on vacation, but I couldn’t resist this recipe. Our kitchen has been full of crazy and colorful recipes for a week now, with no sign of turning back. Last year I emerged into the 2017 blogging scene with gusto and drive – intent on growing this business. I have succeeded in that, but now I want to focus on better balance. I want enough work to be busy, but not so much that I get overwhelmed into paralysis. I want to enjoy the quiet times and know they pass by, just like the busy times. And I want you all to know that my passion for blogging is as strong as ever, but that I don’t want to burn out like so many. I want it to retain my “me-ness.”

So we’ll just focus on that in the new year. I adore and appreciate you all!

Happy New Year!

  2. omg this is the CUTEST dessert ever! I personally have a huge obsession with unicorns so I need to make this ASAPtually! Happy New Year!!

  3. I think the challenge of retaining your “me-ness” is real. You have a definite voice, and I love when that shines through in your posts… here’s to a wonderful year of blogging in 2018- Happy New Year Tamara!

  4. You know that Natalie will love this! My kids go back to school tomorrow! And it’s cold here too. Probably not as cold as it is there, but uncomfortable.

  5. I want a unicorn sundae! Even though I can’t stop shaking and I think it’s finally happened… and I’m getting sick 🙁 I know! I tried so hard to avoid it, but it finally caught up with me. Whomp!

    Also, this kind of encapsulates a lot of what I’ve been thinking about too lately. Couldn’t have said it better myself:
    “I want enough work to be busy, but not so much that I get overwhelmed into paralysis. I want to enjoy the quiet times and know they pass by, just like the busy times. And I want you all to know that my passion for blogging is as strong as ever, but that I don’t want to burn out like so many. I want it to retain my ‘me-ness.'”

    I wish you all the best achieving that balance, and for you this year I especially wish a very happy and merry and sweet and healthy New Year. Much love to you, Tamara <3 XOXO and hope you guys enjoyed Phishy broadcasts!
