And it’s never a bad time for unicorns. We were watching a Kids Baking Championship Show last week, and they had to make unicorn cakes – or something to that effect. Some of the kids didn’t believe in unicorns at all. Some of the kids sort of did, but somewhere in their minds thought they were probably mythical creatures. And yet, some others TOTALLY believed. My kids TOTALLY believe and I don’t feel like telling them anything otherwise, ok? Let’s all believe in unicorns. And bark.
Unicorn Bark Recipe:
What You Need:
4 oz ready-made white fondant
2 oz ready-made red fondant
Cornstarch for rolling
2 cups white candy melts
1 cup purple candy melts
3 tsp coconut oil, divided
1 cup sprinkles of your choice
Yields: 2-4 servings
What You Do:
1 – First, start by lining a cookie sheet with wax paper
2 – Then, cover your fingers in cornstarch, as well as your clean working surface (this will avoid any sticky messes)
3 – Fold both fondant colors and knead together, creating a pink-marbled look and roll 12-15 fondant spheres, about ¼ of an inch in diameter
4 – Next, roll each sphere into a long strip, about 1 inch in length
5 – Then, slightly fold over your strip and start twisting – once you reach the end of the twist, pinch the tip
6 – This will act as your unicorn horn – gently place your fondant creations on your lined baking sheet
7 – Line a rectangular pan with wax paper and add white chocolate and 2 tsp of your coconut oil in a microwave-safe bowl
8 – Microwave in thirty-second intervals until completely melted and then mix and pour into your lined pan
9 – Next, add purple candy and 1 tsp coconut oil into a microwave-safe bowl – microwave in thirty-second intervals until completely melted and pour over your melted white chocolate
10 – Then, use a fork to blend the white chocolate and the purple candy to create a marbled look
11 – Lastly, top your bark with sprinkles and fondant horns, and let set in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes because you don’t want to break it when it’s soft. To serve, break off into pieces and enjoy!
And so, that’s it! My kids love these kinds of baking challenges because they’re fun, colorful, and good kitchen learning experiences too. I can’t wait for all the upcoming (and warm) occasions to make my Unicorn Bark Recipe!
