Unicorn Fudge as Part of Our Unicorn Series

This is a unicorn party food fit for a unicorn kid, or any kid or adult, for that matter. What's not to love with pretty food in pretty colors + SPRINKLES!

Here is part 3 (of at least 4) of our Scarlet-inspired Unicorn Recipes.

Earlier this week we’ve had Unicorn Smoothie Bowls and Unicorn Pancakes. Both are excellent and colorful breakfasts and now we’re moving onto desserts and party recipes. Stay tuned as well for Unicorn Bark, because a girl can never have too much bark. I seriously tell myself that sometimes. Over here, Scarlet had an awesome birthday! In lieu of our usual giant, back-breaking party, she had a few friends over for pizza, Harry Potter jellybeans (GROSS), and a cool, wonderful cake.

She had started theater camp on her birthday and we didn’t want to give up any of that. Yesterday I picked her up from camp and we did a birthday tour where you get a free rose, a free pin, two free chocolates, and a free ice cream sundae.

Now here’s another Scarlet-inspired Unicorn Recipe. Unicorn Fudge! It’s so good! We love to watch the fudge makers (if that’s the term?) make fudge at Penney Patch Candies in Provincetown on Cape Cod. That’s one of our annual delights. In fact, we’ll be going there really soon. The smell of the fudge is intoxicating. We don’t have the fancy fudge equipment here.

We make do, and you will too!

Unicorn Fudge:

What You Need:

6 oz white fondant
Cornstarch for rolling
2 cups white chocolate
2 cups milk chocolate
1 cup condensed milk
1 cup sprinkles of your choice

Yields: 10 to 12 squares of fudge

What You Do:

1 – Line a rectangular pan with wax paper and set aside. Also, line a baking sheet with wax paper and set aside

2 – Start by rolling 12 fondant spheres, about ¼ of an inch in diameter. You can use your cornstarch on your fingers to avoid the fondant from getting stuck

3 – Then, roll each sphere into a long strip, about 1 ½ inch in length

4 – Slightly fold over your strip and start twisting – this will act as your unicorn horn

5 – Gently place each one on your lined baking sheet.

6 – In two separate microwave-safe bowls, microwave each chocolate in 30-second intervals until completely melted

7 – In a small saucepan, warm condensed milk over medium heat but do not allow to boil

8 – Add condensed milk into melted white chocolate and stir

9 – Pour into lined rectangular pan and tap to even it out

10 – Pour sprinkles on top of fudge, place fondant horns, and chill for approximately 3 hours. Cut into 3 inch squares

And there you have it. Unicorn Fudge! Colorful fudge. Party fudge. Whatever you want to call it, it’s super fun. And the unicorn horns are the cutest, right? Working with fondant is a lot easier than I ever thought, with such possibility.

Unicorn Smoothie Bowl Recipe For My Unicorn Birthday Girl

She crawled into bed with us at 6:00am, because that’s how excited she was to be a birthday girl!

My mind can’t wrap around 9 years yet. I was at the doctor’s office early this morning to get immunization paperwork required for their first day of theater camp today, and there was a newborn baby girl crying in that newborn baby way in the waiting room. I was right back there with that uncertainty and that love. I’m pretty sure I can remember the aches and pains and bewilderment of those first few days. Today Scarlet and Des were talking about a baby sister (there is NOT one on the way) and Scarlet wondered where she’d sleep. Des had it all figured out. “Obviously she’d sleep with Astro in his crate!”

Indeed! Not. I like the way they think, though.

The truth is, they’re what makes me want to go and do it all over again, even though we’ve gotten this far. The prospect of nine neurotic months of nausea and fear are what stop me. Not my kids. I can’t help but want to bring more of that wonder, that humor, and that big LOVE into this world. Ah, if only it were easy. It’s not, though. It’s the hardest and best thing I’ve ever done. When I’m at a party with Scarlet, and she’s over by other kids, I smile when I look at her. She composes herself uniquely. If she weren’t mine, I’d still feel connected to her. I’d maybe wish that she belonged to me, even if she didn’t.

Luckily she does. And she’s her own person. She belongs to the whole wide world, and she’ll only add to it.

That said, what does a unicorn birthday kid eat for breakfast? Things with sprinkles, obviously. I love this unicorn smoothie bowl because it’s fit for me to eat too! What’s not to love with fruit, yogurt, flavors, and FUN?
