I’ll admit I have a special affinity for unicorns. They’re mythical, magical, and they can stab you with their heads. Pretty awesome huh?
No, my house is not completely decorated in them. No, not everything I own has a unicorn on it, but I do love them. The term unicorn doesn’t always refer to the mythical white horse that bleeds silver (thank you Harry Potter) or poops glitter and marshmallows. It can also refer to something special, unique. In the start up world, a unicorn (in Canada they call them Narwhals and that makes me laugh) is astart up that is valued at over $1 Billion. Think about that! (with my pinky at my mouth) 1 Billion Dollars. I wouldn’t have to work at all with that kind of money… like ever… and still have some left over.
For me, I like to refer to people unicorns as those who freaking rock and are magical and not afraid to show it.
Oh, and before you do anything else, Google Scotland’s national animal. DO IT!!!
Okay, so Unicorn Bark
1 bag Bright white Wilton Candy Melts
Neon food coloring
Sprinkles. So many sprinkles. Here are a few that I really like to use for this project.
3-4 small mixing bowls (cereal bowls are also great)
1. Melt your Candy Melts in the microwave. Yep, the whole bag. Start with 1 minute, then stir. Microwave/stir in 30 second bursts until its all melted.
2. Separate the white chocolate into the separate mixing bowls and color 2-3 of them. I used pink and purple as my colors, but adding blue to the mix would be really cool too!
3. Plop each color right next to eachother by spoonful.
4. Okay, here’s the fun part. Drag your spatula through your design. This is going to make it look swireled and really cool. THEN take your toothpic for even more detailed design.
5. SPRINKLE BOMBS AWAY! Seriously, use your left over Easter Sprinkles and get to it!
6. Freeze or refrigerate for 1 hour.
7. Break apart your Unicorn Bark and serve!
